New Survey Results from 3,000 Postmenopausal Women Living with Vulvar and Vaginal Atrophy
Date:5/16/2013

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey of more than 3,000 postmenopausal women reveals that women living with vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA) are either unaware of what causes this progressive and chronic condition, or are simply dissatisfied with the therapies available. The REVIVE survey (RE al Women 's VIews of Treatment Options for Menopausal Vulvar/Vaginal ChangEs) exposed multiple barriers to the treatment of VVA, including lack of knowledge, reluctance to discuss symptoms and disappointment with current therapies.

Some symptoms of VVA include painful intercourse, vaginal dryness and vaginal irritation. The REVIVE survey findings were published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Findings from this survey, the largest of its kind, have important implications as women are living longer and will spend up to one-third of their lives post menopause. In fact, an estimated 32 million postmenopausal women in the United States (U.S.) experience symptoms of VVA.

"A women's sexual health post menopause is an important aspect of her overall, general health and is therefore too important to ignore. I would like to see more women talking to their healthcare professionals about this very real medical condition so they can find a treatment option for them," said Sheryl A. Kingsberg , Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and REVIVE survey author. "In this survey, many women reported that VVA has an impact on their lives – particularly their intimate relationships. Despite this, almost half of the women admitted to not discussing symptoms with their healthcare professionals because they were embarrassed or felt the topic was too difficult to discuss. This signals a need for increased awareness and communication."
