      Hitting menopause? Here is the help to handle it.

      Menopause is the process through which menstruation stops and a woman ceases being fertile. This can be a tough call for many as they go through a wide range of symptoms. Some of the symptoms are hot flashes, vaginal changes, cold flashes, night sweats, difficulty sleeping and so on.

      Manage night sweats

      Night sweats can be very uncomfortable, and these hot flashes may last for 3 minutes or more, leaving you sweat-soaked and your sleep disturbed. Wear light clothes and choose light blankets. Keeping a small fan nearby will help the flow of air to go on. If you have trouble sleeping

      Mood swings

      Just like PMS, menopause can also result in mood swings. You may feel all weepy and depressed one moment and ecstatically happy another. Balance out your emotions by practicing yoga, Tai Chi and spending time with friends and family.

      Headaches

      Menopause can trigger migraines in those who have not had them so far and make migraines worse in those who already have the conditions. Make a diary to identify triggers, sometimes hunger or lack of sleep may be a trigger. Take steps to rectify these.

      The impact on sex life

      Menopause can bring down the levels of sexual desire and it’s up to you to work on this. Create more time for sex and increase the time you take on massage and foreplay. Try some erotica and new sex moves to keep the spark alive. There are other factors too that can bring down desire such as bladder trouble, depression, stress and so on. The more sex you have, the better as this helps stimulate blood flow.

      This apart, the hormonal changes in the body may leave the vagina feeling dry and make sex painful. Go for nonprescription, water-based vaginal lubricants or vaginal moisturizers. You could also consult your doctor about prescription vaginal creams or rings. You can also ask for prescription pills to counter dryness and painful sex.

      Preparing ahead to handle menopause symptoms can help alleviate a lot of the discomfort.
