Menopause Causes, Home Remedies, Diet & Lifestyle Advice

Menopause Causes, Home Remedies, Diet & Lifestyle Advice
Menopause Causes:
Because it is a natural transition between two phases of a woman’s life, Menopause is only linked with aging and does not have any significant causative factor. However, cases of Premature Menopause have been noticed in many women below the age of 40. This menopause is more likely to occur in women who smoke excessively, have never been pregnant, or live at high altitudes. Another kind of menopause – surgical menopause – is caused by induced removal of the ovaries. Women who have had surgical menopause often have a sudden and severe onset of the symptoms of menopause.

Some Home Remedies:
Many Ayurvedic herbs can help strengthen and rejuvenate the female reproductive system, regulate hormones, and calm emotions. These include Aloe Vera gel, shatavari (asparagus), saffron,kapikachhu (Mucuna pruriens), and ashwagandha (Withania somnifera). These herbs can be taken in milk decoctions to relieve the symptoms of menopause. Licorice should be consumed during menopause, because it has phytoestrogens that can help correct the hormonal imbalances. Also taking beetroot juice daily is helpful.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice:
Avoid excessive intake of salt, chilies, spices, sour foods, and pickles.
Decrease intake of caffeine and other stimulants, refined sugar, cold drinks, and salads.
Completely avoid junk food and carbonated drinks.
Increase intake of warm foods and drinks; maintain regular meals; and use spices such as fennel and cumin.
An early bedtime, daily oil massage (with almond and olive oil), meditation, yoga, and regular exercise (like walking) are all helpful.

5 Ways To Make Bedtime Fun

5 Ways To Make Bedtime Fun

Love making is an act that is supposed to leave you satisfied and happy, but sometimes that’s not the case. This can be due pain or discomfort, stress or low confidence levels. However, by adopting a few simple ways you can enjoy a healthier and a much more satisfying love-making session.

1. Talk between the sheets: This is very important. Your partner wouldn’t know what you’re in the mood of until and unless you tell them. Nobody can read minds. Know each other erogenous zones to know what turns your partner on. When your partner does something you like, or does something you don’t like, you should let them know in order to derive maximum pleasure during sex.
2. Make use of the correct lubricant: This is applicable for women: just as wetness is a part of sex, so is dryness no matter if you’re in the mood or not. Women hardly ever get the 20 minutes of foreplay they need to be properly lubricated before sex. Sometimes factors like childbirth, breastfeeding or menopause can aggravate this situation. So in such cases it is best to use a liquid lubricant that doesn’t cause allergy to you and your partner, and can make sex a smooth and pleasurable activity. Avoid baby oil or body lotions if you’re using a latex condom.
3. Check with your doctor for itching/ burning sensations: If you’re suffering from itching or burning sensations in your privates, then chances are you might be suffering from an infection. If it causes problem in your sex life, then a doctor should be immediately consulted. Sometimes it may just be an allergy to latex or a lubricant. In such cases try switching to a different type of condom and/or lubricant.
4. Explore different things together: A shift in position or a new sex activity can make sex highly enjoyable and exciting, adding that zing that was missing in your sex life. Indulge in role playing, sex toys or even light bondage if you like to spice things up in the bed. Also, keep shifting left, right, up and down in the same sex position to heighten pleasure.
5. Get enough sleep: Getting your fix of 8 hours of sleep is very important for a healthy love making session. Lack of sleep can leave you tired and not in the mood of any sort of sexual activity. It can even lower libido in men and in extreme cases it can lead to sexual dysfunction as well. So rest well to enjoy your private time with your partner. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

I have intramural uterine fibroid issue its size is 89*70 mm. And want to conceive. Pls give advice.

Homeopath, Chennai
I have intramural uterine fibroid issue its size is 89*70 mm. And want to conceive. Pls give advice.
Fibroids are a leading cause of hysterectomy (the removal of the uterus). Removal of uterus leads to surgically induced menopause. The abrupt disruption in the production of hormones will cause symptoms that are more severe, more frequent and last longer compared with symptoms of natural menopause. Myomectomy is the surgical removal of the fibroid while preserving the uterus but recurrences are often observed. Homeopathic remedies tend to balance the hormones, shrink the fibroids and reduce heavy menstrual bleeding. They are natural, effective, with no side effects and can be used even during pregnancy. There are more than 50 homeopathic medicines for fibroids.

During foreplay I am well lubricated. But when my fiance tries to insert me I get completely dry. How can I overcome this problem?

General Physician, Mumbai
It takes the essence of sixty drops of blood to make one drop of semen; furthermore, much subtle life energy (prana) is lost in sex life.� Then there is the danger of sexually transmitted diseases, which are extremely painful and nasty. What suggestion I am giving you is strong , harsh and annoying but is true and holistic approach for your overall well-being. If you sincerely follow my suggestions for six months , you would feel pure , fresh and healthier than now. The process which I am suggesting to you would make you feel happier , peaceful and satisfaction , because the process mentioned below is the king of education , the most secret of all secrets , it is the purest knowledge because it gives direct perception of self by realization , it is ever-lasting and joyfully performed.� Kindly remember that any illicit sex activity ( sex outside of marriage and other than that for producing children , for example masturbation or any type of recreational sex for pleasure only ) is very bad for your future. It spells trouble physically , mentally and for your real self. Even sex inside marriage but only for recreation or pleasure comes under illicit sex , and is one of the main causes of misery. So strictly avoid illicit sex activity. Lust is perverted form of Love. The misunderstanding that sex is gift of God is a false education and has to be corrected to prevent suffering. Most of academic schools , college do not help to get the correct information regarding this subject. So one has to endeavour with self discipline to seek out the Absolute Truth regarding safe sex from the most reliable source. How to avoid sex trouble? It is been proved by medical research that to overcome illicit sex desire , Mantra meditation helps amazingly well. Mantra meditation means to chant the Holy Names of God with "love and devotion". This has been validated by all bonafide sources ( from Vedas , Bible ) and it works. Try it. You have nothing to lose except your anxiety and bad habit.� This information is based on Vedic Literature which is the oldest manual known to mankind and thus the Absolute Truth. The information from the Vedic Scriptures applies to every one , of any age , gender , nationality. One risks suffering if one ignores the Vedic information. According to the Vedic Scripture , any illicit sex practice is a sinful activity. One may do many activities unknowingly due to lack of information , but one has to suffer for each sinful activity which one does. So this information from Vedic scriptures is compulsory to prevent a lot of suffering.� The Vedic Scripture tells "You have got this human form of life after many, many millions of years waiting." So do not misuse it. That is Vedic civilization, not to misuse the human form of life. Nature's law is very, very strict. This life, it is given, a chance. Nature gives a chance. Now you get this human form of life, advanced consciousness. Now you make further improvement. That is wanted. From here we can make further improvement." - SB 11.9.29 Purport Sex binds one to bodily consciousness and thus takes one away from realizing one's real self within the body. For every pleasure which one derives from illicit sex , one risks equal amount of pain or suffering in future.� The Vedic literature indicates that , to the extent that a person becomes interested in sex, that much he loses all good qualities. For from lust develop all other bad qualities such as greed, personal ambition, hatred, and cruelty. ?Sex life is the background of material existence. Demons are very fond of sex life. The more one is freed from the desire for sex, the more he is promoted to the level of the demigods; the more one is inclined to enjoy sex, the more he is degraded to the level of demonic life.? (SB 3.20.23) Illicit sex causes unwanted pregnancy , sexually transmitted diseases like syphilis , gonorrhoea. To keep women for sex life , one has to beg ,borrow,steal and commit many abominable activities which causes one to suffer a lot.� The pain or suffering which comes as a reaction , can happen either immediately or even after months or years just as a seed fructifies to give fruits in future. So even if one feels fine currently , one should not ignore and keep repeating illicit sex activities. For example, we see in newspaper persons getting arrested or getting punishment years after they commit wrong. The law of nature acts to punish for misdeeds. But if you sincerely follow the above suggestion to stop these activities , you can get mercy and the reactions of your acts can get minimized or even nullified. So make your mind from today to stop the illicit sex activity as per the suggestion mentioned above.

Bleeding Post Menopause - 5 Reasons Behind It

Bleeding Post Menopause - 5 Reasons Behind It

Most women attain menopause between the ages of late 40s and early 60s, the average age being about 51. This is an important milestone in a women's gynecological history. One major change is altered female hormone levels, and this leads to a lot of physiological changes. From hot flashes to mood swings, there is also increased predisposition to osteoporosis and uterine cancer.

If you have not had your menstrual cycles for close to 12 months, chances are you are into menopause. So, that means absolutely no vaginal bleeding anymore whatsoever. However, if you experience bleeding, even spotting, be on the alert. It is not normal and needs to be examined, and if required, diagnosed and treated.

Postmenopausal bleeding or PMB, as it is popularly called, can be due to a variety of reasons. While it could be something as trivial as inflammation of the uterine or vaginal lining, it could also be an indication of more severe issues like cancer.

  • Atrophic vaginitis: Decreasing hormonal levels lead to increased dryness and therefore inflammation of the vaginal and uterine tissue. This is one of the common causes of bleeding after menopause.
  • Endometrial atrophy: Also caused by lower hormone levels, the lining of the body of the uterus gradually thins down and can get inflamed.
  • Polyps: Noncancerous growths in the uterus, cervix, vulva, or vagina can also lead to bleeding.
  • Infections: General infection of any area along the uterine tract could lead to occasional bleeding.
  • Cancers: Though only 1 in 10 PMB cases turn out to be cancers, the prognosis improves with early diagnosis and intervention.

Diagnosis: As repeated above, reach out to your doctor if you notice postmenopausal bleeding. Diagnostic methods could include the following:

  1. Physical examination
  2. Transvaginal ultrasound
  3. Endometrial biopsy
  4. Hysteroscopy
  5. Dilatation and Curettage

Treatment: Needless to say, this would depend on the diagnosis. For very minor cases with diagnosis like altered hormone levels, no treatment may be required other than modification of the hormone replacement therapy. For endometrial atrophy and atrophic vaginitis, use of estrogen creams and pessaries would be sufficient. Polyps would require removal followed by cauterization (application of slight heat) to stop the bleeding.

Cancer: This would depend on the type and location and require a combination of chemotherapy and surgery.  Removal of the uterus also may be required in some cases. So, if you have had bleeding of any sort after a year of menopause, do not ignore it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

If you have been married for more than a year and have not conceived even after trying, you both need to get investigated. You should remember that in a regular menstrual cycle of 28-30 days, 11-17 th days are the baby or fertility days. And the chances of conception are maximum if you have intercourse in this period. Follow this for 3-4 months. Still if you dont conceive meet a gynecologist.
