Menopause Valentine’s Day: Sex, Hot Flashes and Night Sweats!

night sweats

All the chocolate, wine, and roses are great, but what’s a single shmirshky to do when one minute she is enjoying hot passionate sex and the next minute she’s dripping wet? I’m talking about flushing, flashing, and sweating – perimenopause and menopause style!

This is exactly what happened to a friend of mine.  She snuggled into bed with her new boy friend after a fabulous night of passionate love-making and then suddenly a night sweat kicked in!   She was mortified, quickly slipped out of bed, showered, changed, and put a towel down on the mattress.

The next morning over coffee, she openly addressed the situation. She told her new BF that she had perimenopause and menopause night sweats (a very common experience out of a long list of menopause symptoms including hot flashes, memory loss and sleep disturbances). Her new BF said, “Yuck!”  To which she replied, “My feelings, exactly.” I wish there were some kind of perimenopause and menopause antiperspirant that we could roll over our bodies to keep us dry!

Thanks to their open communication, these two are still together and living it up.  Her BF thinks she is “hotter” now than ever!  If your lover can’t handle the heat of night sweats and hot flashes, you might have to ice him!

  1. All can be treated by natural way. Form sleeping style, clothing and diet. Also common natural remedies are St Johns’s Wort, vitamin E, folic acid, and soy. Vitamins and herbs play a key role in the body’s overall health at each stage in life, and the right supplements may be used as remedies for menopause without taking estrogen.
