Loss of Libido

Post image for Menopause is a Fact of Life, Treatment Options are a Choice

It doesn’t matter where a woman lives. It doesn’t matter what language she speaks or how she spends her day. Menopause is a fact of her life.

Every day, in the U.S. alone 6,000 women begin this mid-life adventure with hot flashes, a sudden mood swings, painful vaginal dryness, night sweats, and restless sleeping patterns.

And let’s not forget one of the most uncomfortable topics: our libidos. The only things left of those may be fleeting memories.

Blah. Needless to say, most of us have had it up to our handbags with menopause. We’re over it. We’re past the “grin and bear it” phase. We want symptom relief, and we want it now. So what do we do? 

We do our research. We poke around online, ask friends smart questions, and turn to trusted physicians. And eventually, two treatment option emerge:

  • Prescription Steroidal Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT/BHRT)
  • An nonprescription or natural over-the-counter product 

But let’s face it: Steroidal hormone replacement therapies are increasingly not our first choices. We don’t want chemicals or invasive procedures. That’s why more and more women and doctors are turning to all-natural, over-the-counter alternatives and remedies like Femmerol.

What’s Femmerol?

Femmerol is a 100%, all-natural solution for menopause-related symptoms. Derived from eleven different plants and herbs, you can rest assured 0% are grown in a laboratory. Femmerol has been clinically tested for natural relief from seventeen of the most common symptoms associated with menopause and perimenopause, and it’s designed to give us the simple balance we crave.

Why not HRT first?

 When it comes to breaking down the facts of HRT, the truth is getting harder and harder to define. There’s so much conflicting data out there, and so many potential consequences. What can we know for sure?

At one time hormone replacement was widely used for symptom relief. However, in 2002 the Women’s Health Initiative made a move that affected millions of women and stopped a major study of hormone replacement therapy (HRT/HT) on the risks and benefits of steroidal estrogen in healthy menopausal women, citing an unacceptable increased risk of invasive breast cancer.

Unfortunately, there’s more. Researchers from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health also found increases in coronary heart disease, stroke and pulmonary embolism.

A sub-study of the landmark Women’s Health Initiative clinical trials, The Women’s Health Initiative Memory Study shows HRT caused brain shrinkage and increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

These studies and others have further clouded an issue that was already confusing. Contradictory research about the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy has been periodically released over the years. Today, all we can say with certainty is that it’s up to each and every woman what path to choose. That’s why more and more are turning to natural menopause supplements.

How does Femmerol Work?

It’s a micronized herbal extract formulation containing phytoestrogens, (plant derived estrogens) and eleven different plant extractives and botanicals such as:

  • Sage Leaf
  • Red Clover
  • Kudzu Root
  • Red raspberry Leaf
  • Bayberry Bark
  • Capsicum Fruit
  • Damiana Leaf
  • Ginger Root
  • Valerian Root
  • Licorice Root
  • Black Cohosh Root 

Structurally, these natural phytoestrogens resemble a woman’s estrogen, and their chemical structure allows them to bind to estrogen receptors in the body. This binding potentially slows down access of estrogen to the receptor, thereby producing estrogen benefits with fewer side effects.  Also, when estrogen is low, the phytoestrogens will help meet the body’s need for estrogen.

Sound interesting? A few other key Femmerol facts to consider:

  • Femmerol is vegetarian and kosher meeting personal and cultural preferences.bottle_banner[1][1]
  • Clinical tests show Femmerol aids in relieving 17 of the primary symptoms of menopause. Get the results here.
  • Femmerol is tasteless odorless and easy to swallow even for those who have difficulty and causes no gastric upset.
  • Femmerol is guaranteed free from peanuts, soy, milk, egg, fish, crustacea, tree nut and wheat allergens.
  • Femmerol is manufactured in a 100% FDA current Good Manufacturing Practices compliant facility.

Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness: The Riddle of Illness Revealed

It’s been hard for me to move away from this topic. Primarily because physicians like Dr. Hotze, and other healthcare providers, whom I respect, continue to address it. But, also because I think they are shining a necessary light on the issue of faulty testing procedures for hypothyroidism. Of course, the baby-boomer-rebel in me is [...]

There is absolutely no pun intended, but, my last post on loss of libido in menopause turned out to be one very “hot” topic. I posted it on my Facebook page and the ladies went wild. Some of them lamented the loss of their libido while others were just “fine and dandy” with not having sex post-menopause. Personally, as I always [...]

I received a comment here recently which gave me pause on this subject. The reader, Katy, had this to say (edited for length) about the loss of libido during menopause: “I am constantly amazed at how much our culture glorifies sex and pathologizes the entirely natural decline in a woman’s libido as she ages. Come on, [...]

It’s a very distressing fact for many women that when they begin to [...]

As if perimenopause doesn’t cause enough grief, it can also kill your sex drive. It seems awfully cruel too, especially if you’ve enjoyed a healthy and satisfying sex life until then. I remember panicking when I realized that my desire for sex would diminish – or at least, that’s what I was expecting to happen.  [...]

Feel better?  I could have used someone telling me that about 10 years ago when I walked right into one of the fiercest hormonal battles of my life. First of all, I had never heard of peri-anything.  Menopause?  Yeah.  I had heard of that.  My mom called it “the change,” and I knew that sooner [...]
