Sex and menopause!
Now that Mom is gone, I’m feeling braver when it comes to sex talk. (Mom was a loyal reader of Friend for the Ride. In fact, my mom is the only person who read everything I wrote, including both of my master’s theses and four yet-to-be published novels.)
Back to sex. No more birth control! Whoopee! So many women are thrilled at the thought, only to find that the freewheeling sex they expected has been foiled by pain. Lack of estrogen wrecks havoc on the tissues of the vagina and the (I’ve got to steel my proper self to write this word): “labia.” And this post isn’t just about sex. Sexually active or not, dryness can cause discomfort and even debilitating pain.
Moisture is a menopausal girl’s best friend. Lubrigyn is offering three great products to help. Promise! I tried them.
Lubrigyn Lotion is designed to be a cleanser, moisturizer, and lubricant and can be used everyday, in the shower instead of soap, or applied with a tissue or your hands when you’re out of the shower. Besides its soothing and softening ingredients, including sweet almond, jojoba and olive oils, the lotion has sodium hyaluronate, which attracts and holds onto water. Actually a moisturizer for facial skin, this ingredient also helps the vaginal tissue stay supple and moist. The lotion has a subtle scent so it doesn’t overpower you. I also like that it’s creamy, not runny. As a matter of fact, I’ve been using it as an all-over moisturizer.
Lubrigyn Cream: This is a more concentrated version of the lotion and can be used as a vaginal moisturizer and a lubricant before intercourse. Along with painful sex, dryness can cause everyday pain and also leads to UTIs. That’s why it’s important to moisturize on a regular basis. Lubrigyn comes in a handy pump bottle. It’s not leaky or messy. A joy to use!
Lubrigyn Wipes are an added bonus with the lotion and are ideal cleansers and deodorizers when traveling or at home. They have a subtle scent, too.
Giveaway: Lubrigyn is offering a trio of products to four Friend for the Ride winners. To enter, please post a comment. If you’re feeling shy, shoot me an email to enter. Contest ends on September 20. Thanks, Lubrigyn for the great giveaway!
