I am menopausal 57yrs old. Dont have hot flushes. I have vaginal dryness and tenderness and the urge to urinate. The whole genital area feels inflamed.

The above problem of sensitivity and urge to urinate has been going on for about a year. I had been taking chasteberry for years, but recently started taking vit E, a soya supplements, 40 mg active , fermented -activated organically grown soy 1000mg , wild yam, buckthorn oil (omega7) chasteberry and adrenal support herbs about 6 weeks ago. I have also had coccyx inflammation for several years. I sometimes get non contagious herpes type lesions around my lumbar area. I have had them come up since I was about 15 yrs old. Is it just a question of waiting for the situation to improve?

Hi Jill - It's hard to tell from your comments whether you have been seen by a physician for this or have been trying to find relief for the past year through the various remedies you mentioned. The sensitivity, inflammation and urge to urinate may be from a bacterial infection rather than due to being in menopause. If you have not seen a physician for this I would encourage you do to so. Will you let us know what you do? Thanks, Pat
