Women over 50: Great Website: www.menopause.org


I just heard about a website that may be of interest to our readers:  the North American Menopause Society’s website at www.menopause.org.  It’s got all kinds of interesting information, so it’s certainly worth a visit!  Also, they now have a special extra resource:  a whole page about sexuality and menopause.  Who knew?!  I’ll just attach the press release they sent, since I might get too embarassed if I tried to summarize it:

The new year is still young and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. What better time to take stock of your sexual health?   We’ve got just the thing to help with that: Sexual Health & Menopause, a new online resource from The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) for the midlife woman who wants to know what menopause may mean for her sex life.   This authoritative resource, written for women (not doctors) and complete with tables and illustrations, is available free of charge on the NAMS website at www.menopause.org/sex.aspx.    

“Menopause and aging can bring changes in sexual function for some women,” says NAMS

 Executive Director Margery Gass, MD, NCMP. “These changes don’t need to mean the end

 of sex as you knew it, but they might mean taking some steps to maintain good sexual health

 at midlife and beyond.”  Sexual Health & Menopause will walk you through the following

 topics in a user-friendly format that allows you to dig for more details where and when

 you want:

  • Changes at midlife affecting women’s sexuality
  • Sexual problems at midlife
  • Causes of women’s sexual problems at midlife
  • Effective treatments for women’s sexual problems
  • Further resources and reminders about midlife sexuality
  • Frequently asked questions

Sexual Health & Menopause was developed by NAMS under the direction of Dr. Gass and

 co-editors Jan L. Shifren, MD, NCMP, an obstetrician/gynecologist at Harvard Medical School,

 and Sheryl A. Kingsberg, PhD, a clinical psychologist at Case Western Reserve University

 School of Medicine.
