Low levels of estrogen in peri-menopause and menopause lead to changes in the vagina and the vulva. As a result, 87% of women experience vaginal dryness, irritation, UTI's and painful sex.

Intimate training helps relieve symptoms that cause vaginal pain in menopause and beyond, so that you are at your prime.

Menopause can be a real pain in the vagina

Menopause is a natural part of aging. Understanding the impact of low estrogen in menopause can help you better manage vaginal symptoms:

Vulvovaginal Atrophy (VVA): Low estrogen levels in menopause cause vaginal tissue to become dry, less elastic, more fragile and susceptible to tearing, bleeding or pain during sex or during a pelvic exam. For many women, narrowing of the vaginal opening can cause pain at the entry.

Vaginal pH imbalance and infections: Low vaginal estrogen in menopause causes the vagina to become less acidic, shifting away from a protective lactobacillus-dominant microbiome. This makes the vagina more susceptible to urinary tract infections (UTI's) and overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria (BV) and yeast infections that cause irritation, itching, burning, discharge and odor.

Vaginal and pelvic muscle tonus: Low estrogen levels impact the strength and tonus of vaginal and pelvic muscles that support and keep the uterus, bowel, bladder in place. Up to 40% of women will experience pelvic organ prolapse (POP), due to loss of support from the connective tissue, in menopause.

Intimate wellness, self care

Self-care with Aquafit Intimate Gel Stick® relieves vaginal dryness, improves elasticity, soothes sensitive tissue and balances healthy vaginal acidity (3.8-4.5 pH) to protect against irritation and infections (yeast, bacterial, UTI's).

All-in-one Intimate training with Aquafit PRÉ and Aquafit BIO strengthens pelvic floor muscles and vaginal tonus, to help prevent incontinence and pelvic prolapse in menopause and post-menopause.

Take five minutes for yourself

Intimate training in short sessions of 3-5 minutes, daily, or as needed, in bed or in the shower, helps address vaginal symptoms and discomfort in menopause. 

Key to maintaining vaginal health in menopause is remediating the impact of low estrogen levels, by adopting a  use-it-or-lose it, self-care routine, to get relief of vaginal pain.
