First time poster - I just turned 50 in December. After several bouts of flu in December and January, I was yanked off the pill for high blood pressure. (which was fine - I am single - not having sex!) Since December - no period. For a past couple of months I've had bladder issues, gone in - no infections. Now, an awful itchiness "down there" .. to the point I've caused myself to bleed. I started using "Vagisill" about twice a day and it's been helping.. but I wonder how long this is going to last - I can't keep reapplying all day long!
My mom and sister both went thru menopause in their late 40's and early 50's.. and I was diagnosed w/ perimenopause about 6 years ago.. so, I know I'm due. I don't get the night sweats like everyone talks about, but I don't get a full nights sleep anymore. I cry at a drop of a hat, and watch out mood swings!
I can deal with all the above - but I'm ready to go nutz over this itchiness... Can anyone give advice??View Thread
