FDA Approved Treatment for Painful Intercourse (Dyspareunia) Due to Menopause
Date:2/27/2013

However, while many symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes or flushes, lessen or disappear with time, VVA usually persists and may even worsen without treatment.

“Women tend to accept dyspareunia as part of getting older, but they do not have to live in silence with the condition,” said David J.
