Well Woman Exam- What to Expect after 40 and What Might Be Missing.

  Ah yes, the yearly Well Woman visit, about as popular as April 15  and the tax man and yet a very important part of over all health for women of all ages.  ( I see you cringing and looking at the calendar.. yes you are over-do.. stop now and call to make an appointment!) For those with insurance a Well Woman visit is usually a fully covered once a year event that is part of your basic insurance package.

Sex and Memory Foam

  Well it seems that the sleeping public is taking a stand.. or is that a lie-down ( lay -down?) on the issue of getting a good night sleep and good sex is the  possible loser. According to a report in Barrons  couples are opting for deeper sleep at the possible risk of throwing a monkey wrench into their sex life with the purchase of the oh so wonderful memory foam  sleep experience. The claim by some is that a good romp on a memory foam mattress if more difficult than on the traditional spring coil mattress. As the very happy owner of a top of the line, thick, cushy and delightful to sleep on memory foam mattress I thought I would weigh in on this...

Exercising for Better Sex – Menopause Musings

In January I will be 45 years old and while I am blessed to be holding my age well  ( from a distance on a cantering horse as they say!) I am diving deeper into some of the issues of being a woman making her way to middle age and menopause. While some women make this trek gracefully .. one day they have a period and then then next day they don’t- magic! Some of us take the more difficult route that takes us through excessive bleeding, hot flashes that look like we are morphing into a comic book super heroes, skipping cycles, then triple cycling in one month ( oh joy!) as well as other various pains, freaky weight gain and all the emotional stability of...

Sex During Menstruation

      If sex is a taboo topic for most then sex during menstruation is the deep dark (red) secret. The fact is that besides the possible mess there is no physical reason not to have sex during menstruation, it can feel amazing! In fact sex during your period actually has a lot going for it. Orgasm is a fantastic cramp reliever. It releases the built up tension in the uterus  as well as releasing lovely hormones into your blood stream that make it easier to relax. Of course there is always the issue of the mess. Lucky for us there is the Softcup by Instead. This product can be worn during menstrual sex and it keeps everything quite neat and means...
