    These symptoms are very common with menopause.  

    I'm slightly curious why you never did anything for the vaginal dryness in 26 years.

    Apparently it doesn't cause you that much of a problem or painful sex.

    Hi

    I have the dry eyes (although eye test says not haha), I have suffered from the dryness on inside of nose too. I use eye drops to try and keep them wet but doesn't seem to make much difference. Sheena x

    Yes I do. It comes and goes. I put a little coconut oil inside of my nose it helps. With the dry mouth, I obviously drink more water and also importantly run a humidifier when it is really bad that also helps. Sucking a sweet or chewing gum helps. I also have vaginal dryness and use coconut oil down there too.

    I have the dry eyes. It comes and goes. The dry nose is new for me and it seems to happen at night. I put a little Vaseline in my nose and lubricant eye drops in my eyes.

      Hi thank you all for replying and  some tips I will try them.  it is frustrating for us all and when hrt is not an option to take its finding something that works for us all and that's hit and miss it's can be difficult.   I can only use hrt vaginnally  as my mother had breast cancer and only a small amount enters blood stream which is why it's used on and off. 

      The dry eye nose and mouth dryness and other dryness has been worst than hot flushes that I had years ago they were awful and I still get them on and off good luck ladies I know we will get through it but it's a journey I'm glad we only get once.

    I have dry eyes - saw eye docs (3 of them) they all said to just use over the counter drops, like tears, blink etc.  I also had horrible dry mouth and throat, went to see ENT and he told me that he wasn't my psychiatrist (in other words, its nothing).  Mine was mostly anxiety - drink a lot of water, stay away from caffeine and wine (which I wasn’t giving up).  Eventually it went away.  Good luck.

    Hi Jakki,

    I have also been experiencing dryness, tried a cream for a while but i dont think i gave it long enough to see the full benefit, and I do suffer with dry eyes, i find they feel gritty and uncomfortable throughout the day but never thought anything of it to be honest. I havent been confirmed as going through the menopause, im 38 nad havent had a period for 13 months and having lots symptoms for the last 2 years plus (Night sweats mainly), just never had a blood test confirming it, i'm guessing you havent found anything to help either of these?
