Menopause: Man’s Greatest Fear November 6, 2009Posted by feminestra in Health, Menopause.
Menopause has been around as long as there have been women who lived long enough to experience it. For about the same amount time, men have feared this time of change and dreaded its coming. You may ask, “What are they worried about? I’m the one going through the change.” but change affects everyone around you as well.
So let’s look at the obvious facts about menopause. It affects your sex drive, it can make you irritable, it can cause mood swings, and, depending on which type of treatment you take, can cause you to feel sick and depressed. This can affect your significant other because you mood may become contagious and cause excess tension in the relationship. The lack of sex just adds insult to injury.
Menopause can affect men just as much because they don’t like seeing you go through so much discomfort and not being able to do anything about it. Even the Romans talked about this, they said “Hic astabo tantisper cum hac forma et factis frustra?” which roughly translates to “Am I to stand idle and unnoticed, so handsome and so heroic, all for nothing?” Men are programmed to protect you, but if they cannot do that, then they feel helpless as they watch you go through pain and discomfort. At least today with medicinal breakthroughs and discoveries, there are several treatment options that can help relieve many of you menopausal symptoms.
You can help ease the pain of both you and your significant other by choosing the right treatment to take care of your symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), once a medical breakthrough, has recently come under fire. It was found to increase the risk for several types of cancer in women and have some pretty nasty side effects. Natural alternatives are becoming all the rage now because of the fact that they are all natural and many of the products where used by women in ancient civilizations to treat their menopausal symptoms. However, none of these alternatives have been officially approved by the FDA and the risks of some supplements or combination of supplements are still unknown. It really is buyers beware market right now. Supplements like Feminestra, however, have been clinically tested and proven to help alleviate menopausal symptoms with little if any side effects.
Finding some way to relieve your menopausal symptoms will improve your quality of life greatly because you will just feel better in general. Also, like I said before, moods are contagious, so if you are happier, everyone around you will be happier as well. This will put less strain on your relationships with friends and family and help you enjoy the golden years of your life to the fullest.
