My mother never talked about menopause. She appeared to slide right through without a single symptom that she mentioned–or that I saw.
When I hit my late 40s, I noticed that my interest in intimacy had disappeared– something that was very out of the ordinary. Fearing something was wrong, I saw my GYN.
“You’re in perimenopause,” he told me, “and you may experience some other changes, as well.” He then gave me the complete rundown.
I was horrified that I’d known so little about this stage in life and how it could affect me. How it WAS affecting me. I swore then that I would do all I could to tell women friends coming up behind me about what to expect.
Last summer I sent some info I’d seen about perimenopause and menopause to a couple of 40-something friends. One thanked me.
“Menopause?” said the other. “I can’t even think about it.”
She’ll have to, soon enough, and better to be prepared and equipped with helpful information that can minimize the effects of those normal hormonal changes that can affect intimacy. And of course, help women feel like themselves again.
So when Vagisil asked me to consider a post about their new product, ProHydrate Natural Feel gel I was happy to look at the product they supplied me and was glad I did.
The name says it all. “Natural Feel.” It’s more than a lubricant—it’s a moisturizer used to relieve dryness any time, including in advance of intimacy. What’s great is that it’s formulated to feel like your own moisture. That’s because it’s got a naturally occurring hydrator found in skin—hyaluronic acid—so it feels like your own natural moisture. With age, the amount of this natural hydrator in our skin decreases, which can lead to dryness and also fragility.
That’s right. Sensitive tissue becomes more fragile and can even atrophy. That was quite a surprise to me, and makes having an effective product even more important.
Vagisil ProHydrate Natural Feel works instantly and then slowly releases moisture over time. No added perfumes, dyes, preservatives or estrogen. It’s been clinically tested and cleared by the FDA. Its single-use, pre-filled applicator is easy to use and discreet. Only you know you’re using it.
I thought I’d slide through menopause easily, just like my mother and for the most part I did. Except for these natural changes. I’m talking about them to younger women and making sure they’re prepared with information about hormonal changes, and this new product: Vagisil ProHydrate Natural Feel.
