Roomies, Valentine’s Day is on the horizon. While cuddling closely with your partner might seem routine, for those dealing with menopause, it can definitely feel like a challenge.
Vasomotor symptoms (VMS), commonly experienced during the decline of a woman’s reproductive hormones, can often put a strain on the intimacy you share with your partner.
Menopause Talk: Dr. Simone Whitmore & Angel Tanksley’s Tips During Intimacy
Unpredictable hot flashes, night sweats, or emotional volatility can paint a picture that’s far from sensual and seducing.
Yet, mutual understanding, empathetic communication, and adjusting your approach to physical affection can help reignite that lost spark and deepen your intimate bond.
In the fourth episode of ‘Hot and Bothered,’ Dr. Simone Whitmore and Angel Tanksley give us the rundown of how to keep things spicy in the bedroom.
One of the tips they share is the use of sex toys. This heightened pleasure can lead to an increased release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.
Tanksley mentions that sex toys can help to alleviate some of the discomfort associated with VMS, such as vaginal dryness.
And for those who are experiencing low libido, Tanskley credits these toys with helping to increase one’s sexual desire before intimacy.
Moreover, the use of certain toys can also help to regulate the body temperature during sex, consequently offering relief from hot flashes or night sweats.
Dr. Simone suggested lubricants, which can also serve as a tool to regain control of one’s body during this transitional phase of life.
The use of lubricants can empower women to manage their VMS effectively and improve their sexual health proactively.
Needless to say, menopause should not get in the way of one’s intimacy with their partner.
Find out more ways in which you can keep yourself cool and sexually driven for sex with your partner with these additional tips.
