Genitourinary syndrome of menopause is a common problem that affects at least half of postmenopausal women. Symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause can include vaginal dryness, itching, painful intercourse and urinary tract infections brought on by low estrogen levels after menopause. Despite effective treatments, only around 7 percent of women who are affected receive treatment. A new article in Mayo Clinic Proceedings reviews options for women experiencing genitourinary syndrome of menopause to improve awareness for patients and health care providers.
On this week's Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Stephanie Faubion, director of the Mayo Clinic Office of Women's Health, will explain signs, symptoms and treatment for genitourinary syndrome of menopause. Also on the program, Dr. Sandra Taler, a nephrologist at Mayo Clinic, will cover the recently updated blood pressure guidelines that affect millions of Americans. And Dr. Luke Wood, an emergency medicine physician at Mayo Clinic, will share tips for avoiding common holiday hazards.
