SEX, SEX, SEX
Lube + Vaginal Moisturizer = Your Sexual Wellness BFFs

Has your vagina been acting weird lately? You know, has it felt kind of dry? Or irritated? Maybe even itchy? Has sex stopped feeling like you are being transported to a sensual realm of infinite physical pleasures, and started to feel like …well, a painful rug burn? 

While it may not quite be the stuff of dinner party conversation, it’s important to talk about — because vaginal dryness is one of the most common symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. But the great news is that for many people, it can be treated fairly simply, with non-prescription lube and moisturizer that can work for any budget.

I had the pleasure of joining Christa Biegler, Functional Medicine Nutritionist, for an episode of the Less Stressed Life Podcast. We discussed what all women should know about endometriosis such as causes and symptoms, how to advocate for yourself in the medical world (the average time to get a diagnosis is 7-10 years!), and helpful treatments and symptom control options including a full lifestyle approach.

We also covered PMDD, the severe form of PMS that can cause disabling physical and emotional symptoms that can have a serious impact on your life, as well as Fibroids (as many as 60% of American women suffer from them!). Happy Listening!

Reading the Signs of Our Hormones
How to become an advocate for our own health

By: rē•spin

 

 

Dr. Suzanne Fenske practices gynecology with the well-known idiom “you can’t see the forest for the trees” in mind. “If you view a woman by her body parts rather than looking at her as a whole, you will miss the picture,” says Dr. Fenske, who is double board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and board-certified in integrative medicine. “I look at nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management skills, social parameters, sex, and, most importantly, a woman’s needs, goals, and wants.”
