Menopause symptoms affect the various dimensions of women's lives and they can lead to reduction of their quality of life. Phytoestrogens can be used as an approach to diminish these symptoms.

The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of phytoestrogens on the improvement of genitourinary symptoms in postmenopausal women.

This is a systematic review article. PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, Scopus, ProQuest and Science Direct databases were systematically searched from the 2000 -2020. All clinical trials were included. The quality of the selected papers was evaluated by the CONSOT checklist.

34 eligible high-quality papers were reviewed. Various forms of phytoestrogens such as Fennel, PuerariaMirifica, Hop plant (Humuluslupulus L.), Glycine Max (L.) Merr, soy, red clover, black cohosh, ginsing, Cimicifugaracemosa, Genistein, Diadzein and Isoflavone in the form of a food supplement, enriched powder, gel, cream and vaginal suppository could improve menopausal genitourinary symptoms. The recovery rate in vaginal use of these phytoestrogens was greater than other consumptions.

The use of phytoestrogens as a safe, low-risk and almost accessible method for women can relieve genitourinary symptoms and promote the satisfaction and quality of life of postmenopausal women.
