Ep 56: Vaginal Dryness with Dr. Rebecca Lewis

Wellness with Liz Earle and Regelle podcast image

In this episode of Wellness with Liz Earle, we are returning once again to the menopause. While many of us are comfortable talking about insomnia and hot flushes, we often find it less easy talking about vaginal dryness – a really common symptom which causes so much needless pain and distress. Liz is joined by GP and menopause doctor, Dr. Rebecca Lewis for an episode that has been kindly sponsored by Regelle. This is a long lasting vaginal moisturiser which gives relief for up to three days from just one application. It’s non-hormonal and is clinically proven to provide immediate soothing relief from the symptoms of vaginal dryness.
