Not knowing why you are experiencing symptoms or how to verbalise what you experience, can become a cause of anxiety.1 If you suspect that you may be suffering with vaginal dryness, chat with your doctor.
To make it easier to discuss your discomfort, we have compiled a Symptoms Report PDF download which will help you to prepare for the appointment with your doctor, and may serve as a useful starting point for discussion.
In the report we have compiled a list of symptoms that may be bothersome. Remember that some symptoms may not be as severe as others but make a note of the symptoms that apply to you. It is important for your doctor or pharmacist to know which medication/s you are using on a regular basis, including over-the-counter vitamins and supplements. We’ve included an area within the Report for documenting this.
Finally, there is also an area for questions. How often after a doctor’s appointment or pharmacy visit do you get home and berate yourself because you forgot to ask half the questions you had in mind? We believe it may be helpful to make a list of questions that you want to ask your doctor or pharmacist before your visit. The questions may be on why you are experiencing vaginal discomfort and the treatment options available to you. Do a bit of homework and jot down your questions.
Remember, your doctor or pharmacist has discussions such as these on a regular basis so there is really no need to feel awkward! Make an appointment today and download and print the Symptoms Report now.
