need for women and for physicians seeking alternatives to hormone therapies."

Dr. Alan Altman, Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, Harvard Medical School and an expert on menopause, commented "Physicians are now seeing an epidemic of vaginal symptoms, such as dryness, irritation and sexual pain, in post-menopausal patients as a result of large numbers of women stopping hormone treatment due to fear instilled by what they have read about the Women's Health Initiative Study. Chronic symptoms such as these have a major adverse impact on quality of life for these women and highlight the need for new treatment options in those wanting to avoid estrogen use."

About Postmenopausal Vaginal Syndrome

Postmenopausal Vaginal Syndrome (PVS) is a chronic condition characterized by vaginal symptoms including dryness, sexual pain (dyspareunia), and irritation. Declining estrogen levels during menopause may cause tissues of the vaginal lining to grow thinner and to lose elasticity, a condition known as atrophy. Dryness and irritation associated with decreases in vaginal secretions often cause pain or bleeding during sexual intercourse. The decline in estrogen also contributes to an increase in vaginal pH, creating an environment more susceptible to infection. There are more than 64 million women in the United States who are over 40 years old. It is estimated that up to 40% of post-menopausal women will have symptoms of PVS. Current treatments approved for this condition all contain estrogen, administered either orally or locally in the vagina. Other currently available SERMs do not have an effect on vaginal tissue and may induce hot flashes.
