'Taboo' of menopause leaves women suffering in silence

I posted an article a couple of weeks ago about how many women are afraid to discuss the issue of vaginal atrophy/vaginal dryness with their health care practitioner. This article from the DailyMail.com (UK) expands on the subject, and indicates that a substantial portion of women are afraid to discuss menopause honestly with their doctors and/or their partners! This is 2010, this should not be a taboo subject (of course, this is from a woman who has chronicled most of her menopause, vaginal dryness and all, all over the Internet!) I posted a comment at the bottom of the article, it may take some time to appear online.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
