Menopause is a natural transition in a woman’s life and the culprit is withdrawal of estrogen. Menopause (and peri-menopause) is what the female body goes through when the level of estrogen gradually or dramatically decreases.
Estrogen is the hormone regulator of every organ in a woman’s body from her skin (the largest organ), the brain (the largest sex organ), heart, and vagina. This creates a hormone imbalance and, thus, the symptoms associated with this lowering of estrogen. This is why women experience hot flashes, dry hair and skin, heart palpitations, mood changes, vaginal dryness, etc..
There are many ways to help manage menopausal symptoms which can include:
- Limiting alcohol intake
- Healthy eating
- Personal moisturizers or lubricants (for vaginal dryness and/or to help increase sexual desire)
There many remedies, products, etc. that can help make this time of life for a woman that much better from a health, relationship, and sex perspective so that getting back to the bedroom will be top of the order at every stage of life.
