Perimenopause is the transitional phase leading up to menopause that usually begins three to five years prior to a woman’s final menstrual period. Perimenopause begins with a slow and inconsistent decline in estrogen production, and can begin anywhere from 35 to 50. At this time in your life, you may start to experience symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and headaches. With all the changes your body may be experiencing, it can be helpful to track your feminine health. Try My Feminine Health Planner

When you begin perimenopause, not only must you deal with the normal fluctuation in pH that occurs as a result of your period, but you must also deal with the hormonal changes that occur. These hormonal changes can also affect your feminine pH and can cause vaginal dryness.
To maintain feminine pH when you are not having your period, you can use RepHresh Vaginal Gel. RepHresh Vaginal Gel
is clinically shown to maintain healthy vaginal pH and eliminate feminine odor. Healthy pH can help reduce risk of vaginal issues. When pH is unbalanced, odor-causing microorganisms can flourish and studies show that vaginal issues often occur when pH is unbalance.
Feminine dryness or vaginal dryness is one of the most common complaints for women going through menopause. While nearly every woman will experience vaginal dryness at some point in her life, it is most often associated with the normal decline or fluctuation of the female hormone estrogen that can be triggered by menopause.
Every woman experiences the onset of menopause differently. There are many options for you when it comes to taking control of your feminine health during this sensitive and exciting time of life. RepHresh products are clinically tested and shown to provide significant benefits. We encourage you to talk to your doctor about vaginal pH, menstruation, yeast, bacteria and all of your feminine issues.
