Women’s experience of vulvovaginal symptoms associated with menopause”  by Shifren et al is featured in this issue of Menopause and is freely available to everyone for one month.
Genitourinary urinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) is an important result of estrogen deficiency.  Symptoms are bothersome.  Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) is a component of GSM.  To provide a validated measure for assessing symptomatic VVA or GSM, a new patient-reported outcome measurement is under development for both clinical and epidemiologic research in the hope of advancing knowledge about GSM and improving the care.  The aim of this report is to describe menopausal women’s experience of GSM in their own words and to better understand the syndrome and its impact on women’s lives.  Ultimately a validated patient reported outcome measure will provide a practical and efficient means of assessing GSM.
