Life-Changing Secrets Every Menopausal Women Should Know

Silver Cross will host a free program on Restoring Your Vaginal Youth on April 14 

New Lenox, IL (March 31, 2016)— For two years, New Lenox resident and internal medicine physician, Dr. Diana Jaime, suffered with increasing vaginal discomfort due to dryness. Simply wearing jeans or driving a car for a while would cause her to experience more symptoms.  Dealing with menopause goes beyond hot flashes, it interferes with your activities and family time. For Diana, bike rides and zumba classes were off her to do list.  Her discomfort was due to severe vaginal dryness. She tried water-based lubricants and low dose hormonal creams, but found no relief. Unfortunately, she was not a candidate to take oral hormones since this type of medication caused her blood to clot. After trying what she thought were the only options to get relief for menopausal dryness, she figured she would just have to live with it. Then her life dramatically improved after talking with a girlfriend. Her friend suggested she see Dr. Francisco Garcini who could help her find relief through a new non-surgical procedure called vaginal rejuvenation.
