Menopause is a cornerstone of a woman’s life that represents a new coming of age. However, with the beauty of our changing bodies, we also have a few struggles we must overcome. Menopause can cause mood swings, troubles sleeping, vaginal dryness, and more. When you want to make the most out of your health after menopause, here are a few ways to get started.
If you’ve been through menopause and suffer from vaginal itching or burning, dryness, painful urination, and even pain during sex, you’re not alone. In fact, almost half of women who go through menopause go through this. The good news is, there is a way to make you more comfortable.

The procedure takes place in the office, and the process doesn’t require anesthesia. If you have any questions or concerns about this effective treatment, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Singer.
The signs of aging are something none of us can completely avoid, and while some of them are beautiful, others can lower our confidence. Body contouring is a great way to combat the signs of aging in your body, so you can feel and look your absolute best. After menopause, you have an excellent opportunity to pamper yourself. You’ve worked hard to maintain your health, and now it’s time to define your look even more. You’ll have a lot of options to improve areas like your thighs, tummy, arms, and breasts. Soon, you’ll be happy and bursting with self-esteem every time you walk into a room.
After menopause, a change in diet may be necessary to help stabilize mood and prevent weight gain. Make sure you’re incorporating lots of fruits, veggies, and yogurt into your diet, and stay away from high sodium and processed foods as much as you can. The more antioxidants you have in your diet, the more energy you’ll have. Plus, you’ll have the added benefit of your skin looking fantastic.
Exercise and Meditation
Taking a moment to yourself each day to get your heartbeat up, and then bring it down for a small mediation session will go a long way for your mood, stress levels, and even help with sleep. Exercise will help prevent weight gain in the future, which can worsen symptoms of menopause. You’ll boost your immune system and relieve feelings of irritability. You’ll appreciate having a strategy to calm your nerves, and soon it will be one of your favorite times of the day.
