Dr. Louise Newson Launches Regelle ‘Don’t Suffer in Silence’ Campaign.
Dr LouiseNewson, the UK specialist GP known as the Menopause Doctor (mymenopausedoctor.co.uk) recently came to Dublin to launch Regelle’s Don’t Suffer in Silence campaign. Louise, a regular on UK media such as Channel 4’s Embarassing Bodies, met with national media to discuss the common problem of Vaginal dryness.
While menopause is a prime factor, women can suffer vaginal dryness at any age due to a number of different factors such as breastfeeding, prolonged use of tampons, use of some feminine hygiene products and as a result of certain medications and medical treatments.
A survey conducted by Regelle in Ireland found that 70.2% of women suffer from vaginal dryness at some stage. 59% of those do not seek help from the GP or healthcare professional, a disappointing fact largely due to embarrassment or lack of awareness, says Dr Newson.
The #dontsufferinsilence campaign encourages women to be confident in speaking about and seeking treatment for vaginal dryness.

Vaginal Moisturisers work by coating the vaginal tissue and delivering continuous moisture. Regelle is hormone free and can be used with systemic HRT.
