Shhhh… How many times have you heard that sound while talking about menopause? Well, Red Hot Mamas is not the shhhh type of organization! We are passionate about bringing menopause to the forefront and fostering a community where women feel comfortable talking out loud about their menopause symptoms.
One important issue that is often the subject of hush-toned conversation is something we like to call “The Sahara” which occurs during our menopausal years. Yes, that’s right, our humor isn’t the only thing that’s dry! Vaginal dryness is not an insurmountable problem, and oftentimes women miss out on valuable information because they feel uncomfortable discussing it!
That’s why we’re extremely excited to announce our participation in a new alliance made up of women who have experienced menopause and weren’t afraid to speak up. GLAMTM (Great Life After Menopause) is on a mission to educate and empower women to get the help they need and deserve. As a proud member of GLAMTM, I, as a part of Red Hot Mamas, will join this powerful effort to get women talking. When it comes to painful intercourse and vaginal discomfort, silence is NOT golden!
Menopause is not the beginning of the end. In fact, it’s a time when many women finally come into their own — through learning how to discuss and deal with their symptoms! Cheers to GLAMTM for providing the education and support that encourages women to take charge of their menopause. Together we can have less shhhh and more woo hoo!
