  • Yes it is. The PH balance is very screwy right now so you are very prone to yeast infections and the likes. You can use monistat, vagisil, or if you are more naturally minded (and don't want to spend that much) you can use plain yogurt. For the dryness, which can be very uncomfortable you can use a water-based personal lubricant. I personally recommend KY, especially now that it comes in spray form. I'm not menospausal, but witnessed first hand my mother go through what you are describing. I do however have periods of dryness, so for that I offer my personal experience/advice.
