Ways to manage menopausal symptoms

Question : I'VE been going through menopause for almost two years now. I have not had sexual intercourse with my husband for one year. Due to the discomfort during intercourse, I dare not think about sex.

Answer : DURING menopausal years, a woman's ovaries stop making oestrogen. Low oestrogen levels can sometimes cause dryness and thinning of vaginal tissue, making intercourse uncomfortable and painful. An expectation of pain with intercourse due to vaginal dryness and atrophy may greatly dampen a woman's desire.

Herbs rich in natural plant oestrogens such as red clover and soy are highly recommended. If you are suffering from other menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweat and irregular periods, supplementing with herbs such as black cohosh, sage and dong guai may be helpful.

Vaginal infections (such as bacterial infection) within the vagina can irritate its wall lining. Therefore, Lactobacillus GR-1 and Lactobacillus RC-14 supplementation can produce mucous barriers and secrete anti-infective proteins which prevent yeast from attaching to the wall lining.

Many herbs have been widely used by women to improve their libido and alleviate fatigue. These herbs include damiana, ginseng, ginkgo, withania, puncture vine and horny goat weed.

Withania and puncture vine are two remarkable herbs used to improve sexual desire and promote a balanced hormonal system.

Regular exercise can also improve sexual desire and overall well-being. In addition to being a great stress reliever, aerobic exercise can improve blood flow to the pelvic area, helping to tone and nourish vaginal tissue.
