Among the most common menopause issues — and unfortunately, one of the most difficult to discuss — are vaginal symptoms. There are many ways to treat vaginal symptoms including lifestyle changes, hormonal treatments, and sometimes surgery may be recommended by your physician.

Our providers will review your health history, family history, and gynecological history before your telemedicine visit.
During the 30-minute video call, your doctor will listen to your experience with menopause so far, including other symptoms you may be experiencing (like painful sex or low libido).
We offer evidence-backed treatments to relieve your symptoms, such as:
Lifestyle modifications & natural supplements
We'll explain how lifestyle changes at home can help boost moisture, like which daily moisturizers to try.

One part of your body that probably isn’t slowing down as you approach menopause is your bladder.

About one in five women ages 50 to 54 experience these unpleasant conditions. Learn more about what causes bladder problems in midlife, and how to manage both stress and urge incontinence.
