Health, Play, The Good Life
Is menopause affecting your sex life? It’s the one thing many Zoomers are reluctant to talk about, according to Karen Giblin. She runs the largest menopause education program in the United States. Thousands of women attend her workshops in 50 hospitals across the country. There’s also a branch in Cape Breton.
“Its important that you have the motivation keep sex satisfying, because if you lose your motivation and you flatline it, it doesn’t make for a great relationship with your spouse. I think that you need to talk to your doctor, and a lot of women are reluctant to talk to their doctors because they’re embarrassed – but trust me, your Doctor has heard everything before.”
She says there are many products to help with the symptoms. But the bottom line is you have to make time for romance – no matter how busy you are. That could mean waking up an hour earlier, meeting at lunch, or setting the mood at home with candles, music, and whatever else puts you in the mood. You can find Karen’s website at redhotmamas.org
