    Hi, Can I take menopause support with Apixaban blood thinning tablet for DVT and the mini pill Noriday?

      Hello Estee, Unfortunately, the Menopause support tablets are not suitable if you are taking any hormonal contraception.

      Hi Tracey Falling levels of oestrogen can cause a reduction of protective mucus in the vagina, resulting in symptoms such as itching and irritation This reduction can also change the pH in the vagina, leading to an imbalance in the friendly bacteria, which can contribute to the problem as well. You may find that taking a vagina prebiotic will help. A company called Optibac do one called Optibac for women. You could also try Menopause Support, as this is used to help gently raise and balance oestrogen levels. Sea Buckthorn Oil is often used to help if dryness is an issue as well. Both of these supplements can take 4 weeks or so to start showing benefits. However, if this symptom continues to bother you, it is best to check with your doctor just to rule out any infection
