Change takes change. If you have recently been through your major change may argue that point. You kept exercising and eating right and still gained weight during menopause.

Were you the lucky one?

You sailed through menopause without noticing it happen. Were you the hot babe having a flash on the rowing machine at the gym? Either way, you may have a few extra around the waist. Maybe have some creative packing to do around bra straps in the morning. Wonder why the cottage cheese got there when you are still exercising.

Many of us want to live a long and healthy life. We want to stall the aging process and maintain our youthful appearance and feel young even in old age.

The quest for the fountain of youth has been highlighted in film and literature. In the United States alone, the desire to maintain youth, and stall aging is a multi-billion dollar industry, with face creams, plastic surgery, and various fads and gimmicks that have people pulling money from their wallet without hesitation.

Let's Talk About Sex After Menopause: What Women Should Know
When asked about sex in a survey, 47 out of 51 postmenopausal women responded that having an active sex life is important to them. Unfortunately, some women find that sex can become painful after menopause.


Painful sex, also called dyspareunia, can result from vaginal changes, which can occur when a woman's estrogen level decreases during menopause and her vaginal walls become thinner and less lubricated. Fifty-two percent of women from the same online sexual health survey said they avoided intercourse because of vaginal discomfort, and 68 percent said they attempted to hide their symptoms from their partner.

"I was upset about the pain I experienced during sex after I went through menopause," said Charlotte. "Fortunately, I have a great relationship with my doctor and was able to discuss appropriate treatment options to help ease my symptoms."
