Hi,

I'm 56 years old and post-menopausal 12 years. No known health problems other than diverticulitis.

I am experiencing dry eyes, mental fog, joint aches, blurry vision, and most suddenly, vaginal dryness with a very light (one time) pink stain. I understand these to be symptoms of low estrogen. I am also under a lot of stress at this time if that makes a difference. Stress also threw me into menopause, in my opinion. :(

I have not and will not take HRT. I was thinking of Omega 3's and Flaxseed oil along with a vaginal moisturizer? I would like to take a more natural route on this if possible. I used black cohosh (Remifemin) during the menopause transition and it worked well for me.

Any questions, comments or something that you or anyone else might recommend? Thanks in advance. :)

Thanks in advance. :) I was told to try coconut oil as a vaginal moisture. It's natural and seems to work.

  • For Vaginal dryness, i recommend this:* Apply around ½ tsp of comfrey salve to your vaginal area daily after taking a bath.* Fatty fish like salmon and sardines and essential flaxseeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. It is very important for you to have these foods as they keep the cells healthy and naturally cure infection.* Take flax oil and fish several times a day. You can also have 1 or 2 tbsp of flaxseeds which have been freshly ground in place of flax oil regularly to treat vaginal dryness.* Increasing the regular intake of water will keep your body properly hydrated. Eating yoghurt regularly acts as another effective home remedy.* Avoid bubble baths, powder, perfumes or douching the vaginal area and do not use scented soaps.* Wear cotton underwear and apply vitamin E oil regularly. hope this helps... you can check out my blog on this site for more information and useful tips :D
