No drink, no nice food and forget about sex.
A recent article in The Guardian about the menopause suggests instead of hrt…
‘advises that all women around the menopause could reduce hot flushes by regular exercise (aerobic, such as running or swimming), weight loss, wearing lighter clothes and avoiding caffeine, smoking and alcohol. Regular, sufficient sleep can help reduce mood swings.’
No alcohol, starving yourself more than I already have for the last 30 years (probably avoiding dairy – any link to osteoporosis do yah think?) no more coffees or teas or nights out with the girls or my partner, hot sweats and disturbed sleep patterns (like we hadn’t already had that with kids) and not wearing your jumper, and no sex due to vaginal atrophy will make me less grumpy?
