GENITOURINARY SYNDROME OF MENOPAUSE (GSM)
 Capsule

NAMS and ISSWSH have published a new terminology for "volvovaginal atrophy" i.e. "genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM)."  GSM is a collection of symptoms and signs associated with a decrease in estrogen and other sex steroids involving changes to the labia, clitoris, vestibule, vagina, urethra and bladder. GSM may include genital symptoms of dryness, burning, and irritation; sexual symptoms of lack of lubrication, discomfort or pain, and impaired function; and urinary symptoms of urgency, dysuria and recurrent urinary tract infections." What are the treatment options?
