In order to help women get more familiar with the natural process of menopause, Dr. David Samadi wrote an article answering ten of the most asked questions regarding this significant life change. Perhaps the first question on every woman’s mind is, “What age will I go through menopause?” Dr. Samadi notes that while all women are different and go through life’s processes at different times, the most typical range for menopause to begin is between 45 and 55 years old. He notes genetics is a significant factor that determines how old a woman will be when she begins menopause, but other factors such as smoking and chemotherapy also play a role.
Dr. Samadi also notes some of the significant symptoms that women experience during menopause can include hot flashes, muscle and joint pain and mood swings. He offers some tips to combat hot flashes such as avoiding alcohol, caffeine, and spicy foods. Dr. Samadi encourages women who are going through menopause to continue exercising and eating a healthy diet to help get through the transition as smooth as possible.
Dr. David Samadi also has advice for men seeking help in regards to their sexual health. With his wealth of knowledge in urological matters, Dr. Samadi encourages men to start early in taking care of their sexual health so that things like erectile dysfunction can be mitigated in the future.
As any doctor would tell you, regular exercise and a healthy diet are key components of general health and well-being, the same goes for sexual health. Dr. Samadi suggests trying to eat foods low in fat and rich in antioxidants to help promote good sexual health. One particular exercise noted by Dr. Samadi to help with sexual well-being are Kegels. Regular check-ups, avoiding drugs and limiting alcohol are also tips the doctor recommends. Taking care of sexual health is as simple as doing all the things necessary for a general healthy life.
