    Stanford Project on Vaginal Dryness/Poll
    biodesign posted:
    Hello Ladies,

    I am an MD researcher at Stanford University, exploring new treatments to treat the symptoms of vaginal atrophy. We are trying to understand what patients are looking for in treatments, and where the current treatments are coming up short. If you would be interested in talking to us, we would be most appreciative. Your input is invaluable. If interested, please message me.

    Thank you.
