Painful sex due to menopause will not get better on its own
Sadly, many women do not seek help for painful sex due to menopause because they mistakenly believe that it is a natural part of aging that they simply have to accept or that it will get better over time. The truth is that unlike hot flashes, night sweats and fatigue, moderate to severe painful sex due to menopause will not go away on its own.1-4
In fact, if left untreated, the pain can get worse
That is why it is so important to tell your healthcare provider if you are experiencing painful sex due to menopause and to ask about safe and effective treatment options like Osphena®.
