In brief: Yes

One of the earlier signs.
As average estrogen levels diminish during perimenopause, both the vaginal tissues and bladder experience dramatic changes resulting in vaginal dryness and decreased bladder capacity, frequent "bladder infections, " burning on urination and the need to get up at night to urinate. These symptoms can be very distressing and need local estrogen (vaginal) therapy.
