Six Tips for Mastering Menopause

Menopause is nothing to be ashamed of. In the UK, 13 million women are experiencing the big milestone on any given day! Kegel Angel has a few useful tips on navigating this time in your life with minimal stress and maximum composure.

  1. Get out and get exercising.

Exercise is not just a great way to maintain healthy mind and body: during the menopause, it will also reduce hot flashes and mood swings, protect again heart disease, and strengthen bones. Remember, it’s never too late! Even if you’ve never been much of an active person, now is a great time to start. Take regular brisk walks or jogs, and try relaxing ways to stay in shape like yoga, pilates, or tai-chi.

  1. Drink your milk.

As we get older we all lose significant amounts of bone mass, which can lead to osteoporosis. Try adding extra calcium to your diet with milk (soy works too!) and cheeses, as well as green leafy vegetable and nuts — especially broccoli, spinach, and almonds.

  1. Do your Kegels!

Did you know that menopause increases your risk of urinary incontinence? It can also reduce sexual sensation for you and your partner due to a weakening pelvic floor. The Kegel Angel can help you tackle this before it begins: using a gentle pulse, the Angel stimulates the pelvic floor muscles to expand, contract, and strengthen. If the menopause is causing incontinence or muscle weakness, or if you just want to turn your orgasms back up to eleven, the Angel can help.

  1. Stay intimate.

Repeat after us: the menopause doesn’t reduce your sex drive. Studies have shown two-thirds of women report zero reduction in their sexual appetite, and intimacy can be both physically and emotionally reassuring. Some women even report super-strong orgasms during menopause!

  1. Keep it lubed.

If you do feel tenderness during sex, make sure to use a water-based lubricant. For women with more complex needs such as dryness or atrophy, your doctor can prescribe a course of oestrogen cream to ease general discomfort. Don’t be put off by an easy-to-solve issue, and remember a strong pelvic floor can help tremendously.

  1. Know yourself, know your sleep.

Getting a good night’s sleep is a great way to make the most of every day. The usual no-nos apply: avoid large meals, coffee, smoking, or using a screen before bed. Drink something warm like a chamomile tea or warm milk, keep your bedroom dark, and keep cool.

The Angel is ideal to strengthen your muscles as you age. However, every woman is different, so we advise double-checking with your doctor or physiotherapist if you’re concerned about your specific needs.
