A medically accurate, de-stigmatizing term developed to discuss issues in postmenopause

September 2, 2014

The North American Menopause Society and the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health have developed and endorsed a term to remove stigma around conversations for women in postmenopause — genitourinary syndrome of menopause.

Explained online in Menopause, the creation of genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) follows a consensus conference by the societies, hoping to alleviate discomfort during dialogue about genital, sexual and urinary issues and foster smarter health care decisions, according to a statement released by North American Menopause Society (NAMS).
