Clinical Practice Guidelines for Managing Genitourinary Symptoms Associated With Menopause.

Genitourinary syndrome of menopause encompasses the group of urogenital signs and symptoms resultant from hypoestrogenism, including genital dryness, burning or irritation, sexual discomfort, pain or dysfunction, and urinary urgency, dysuria, and recurrent urinary tract infections. Genitourinary syndrome of menopause can have a profound impact on well-being, functioning, and quality of life in postmenopausal women. Treatment includes vaginal moisturizers and lubricants geared towards providing symptomatic relief; hormonal treatments which promote epithelial thickening and production of vaginal secretions; and pelvic floor physical therapy along with behavioral therapies that address pelvic floor hypertonicity and psychosocial factors.
