    Heads up! If you experience moderate to severe hot flashes and night sweats, you may be at higher risk for lower bone density and in turn, a higher rate of hip fractures than women without these symptoms. These study findings were published online yesterday in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, A bit of background…researchers prospectively examined data from over 23,000 women participating in the Women’s Health Initiative study who did not use hormones. The goal was to assess the association, if any between vasomotor symptoms, that is, hot flashes and/or…

    Can I Be Honest? This is not about being an expat, its about being a woman…. Can I be honest? Well, of course I CAN…but do I really want to? Everyone always loves to know the truth. Everyone always appreciates knowing what’s really going on, deep down. There’s something very appealing to us all when someone shares the raw, honest truth in life. Well, today, on this kinda gray, cloudy, windy morning, I’m feeling kinda blue. To be honest, this feeling has been brewing for a little while now. Just simmering inside, as I’ve been quietly trying to process exactly what is going on for…

  • Diagnosing Menopause

    menopause.guide@about.com
    20 Dec 2014 | 3:15 am
    The diagnosis of menopause is usually made by menstrual and medical history, but sometimes may be made with the use of lab values. Lab values may include levels of follicle stimulating hormone, FSH, Estradiol estrogen, or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, TSH. The most common way to diagnose menopause is after 12 months of amenorrhea, or having no menstrual periods.

  • Guyside: The Beautiful Freedom of Not Giving a Crap

    Danny Brown
    17 Dec 2014 | 4:21 am
    When I was much younger – say, around 8-9 years old – I used to get in trouble with my school teachers, and other adults in positions of authority, regularly. Pretty much not a day would go by without my mother receiving some troublesome news about me. I guess, looking back, I simply had an aversion to authority. And while that continued until my early teens, when I learned what it meant to really show respect and understand conflict with authority was primarily in my mind, I also learned something at that young age that must have made an impression (even subconsciously) from my…
  • Vaginal Atrophy: Is there an effective non-hormonal option?

    Liz
    12 Dec 2014 | 3:50 am
    While the GLAM squad works to convince you that the only sensible option to treat vaginal atrophy is Novo Nordisk’s Vagifem (a topical estrogen agent), I would like to share that a highly effective non-hormonal option exists. The rub? It’s only available in Europe and Canada. The thing is, I have tried it and while I may be an n of 1 in scientific circles, I want to share that it’s pretty darn amazing. Before I do the reveal, I would like to get a bit personal and share my story. After years of experiencing no issues with vaginal dryness or pain during intercourse, the…

    Robin Hood by Rich Becker. With the abundance of bow savvy heroines making a mark on the silver screen, it wasn’t any surprise for me to see my daughter don a hood and fill a quiver for Halloween. What was a surprise, however, was how almost every neighbor narrowed their errant guesses to the confines of gender. “Who are you … Katniss?” “No.” “Merida?” “No.” “Tauriel from the Hobbit or Susan from the The Chronicles Of Narnia?” “No and no,” she said. “I’m Robin Hood.” She said it with enough conviction to corral the conversation. She was Robin Hood and the…

    Insomnia! Yes, folks, it’s that time of the year when I raise the sleep issue. In fact, if I could, I would see your zzz’s and raise you a few. You see, I’ve not been sleeping much as of late and I’m desperately seeking a sheep or two to carry me deeply through the night. What happens to us as we age that interrupts the sleep cycle? In addition to stress and other environmental factors (which I’ve covered quite frequently on Flashfree),  a progressive decline in estrogen and loss of ovarian function can strongly affect sleep. However, experts say that despite…

    DEAR DALI MAMA: I’m in my early forties and might be getting signs of early menopause. I have been very emotional the past 15 months though I put this down to emotional release through healing—I live in Brazil and get healing from John of God. I cry at the silliest thing and an annoying thought can spiral me into an internal emotional drama for the remainder of the day. I have also periods every three weeks now, sometimes twice a month (before it was every 28 days). Do you think it could be early menopause? Or is some of it healing related (physically and emotionally)? I know nothing…
  • The Curse

    I am thirteen years old. I have just discovered blood in my underwear. I have heard the horror stories. I have witnessed the distress in the girls’ toilets. I know this is a curse. I know that now I should not touch pickles, wash my hair, or go swimming. I call my mother into the bathroom to tell her what has happened. She hugs me; an enormous, all enveloping hug. Her joy at the news is infectious. Her response is not what I expected. Perhaps I’m wrong. Perhaps this isn’t a curse after all. Taking my hand she leads me to the kitchen. It is a sunny, suburban Sunday in the early…

    In 2007, the day I turned 21, I sat in the waiting room of an imaging clinic with a bladder RIDICULOUSLY full of water. As anyone who has had an ultrasound of their abdominal region knows; you have to drink more water than a camel stores in his bloody humps and then HOLD IT ALL IN! We needed to see what, if any problems with my ovaries had caused the complete amenorrhea. After crossing my legs, giving the receptionist death stares and breathing in and out like I was practicing giving birth; they called me in to the examination room. The lady carrying out the ultrasound was lovely. Well, at…

    Fresh veggies and olive oil are good for your skin – always and in every form. However, they aren’t always the first ingredients you think of when you plan your holiday meals.

    Over 60 percent of divorces are initiated by women in their 40s, 50s or 60s — the menopause years — according to a recent survey conducted by AARP Magazine. Why are women running away from marriage? I wasn’t even married when I slammed into menopause months before my wedding day at the age of 47. Despite being completely in love, I almost ran away and my fiance almost married bridezella! Experts say the number one reason for divorce is lack of communication.

Estrogen deficiency (the Other ED™) after menopause can also cause vaginal symptoms that can have a negative impact on your relationship with your partner, your sexuality, quality of life, and self-image.
