Vaginal Health After Menopause

Menopause happens around the age of 50 years. The pause or cessation of a woman’s ability to conceive a chid as her periods stall and eventually stop altogether is a natural process that can takes years to complete or be over with in months.Essentially the ovaries stop producing estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

Hot flashes are seen as the brain’s effort to jump start the ovaries into producing more estrogen. Eventually the brain gives up on this project.

The loss of these hormones especially estrogen means several things for a woman’s overall health. Estrogen helps the genitalia stay succulent and juicy. As estrogen wanes, the inner walls of the vagina may become dry and inflexible making intercourse painful.

Massage with Liquid Silk for 5 minutes every day helps keep tissue flexible and moist. The outer lips of labia, the perineum, the inner third of the vagina can be gently massaged. A vibrating wand with silk can be inserted into the vagina to keep the inner walls slippery. This allows them to slip by each other and not stick in painful ways.
