(NaturalNews) Two of the most common symptoms of menopause are weakened pelvic muscle tone and vaginal dryness, which leaves many women wondering what they can do to improve their vaginal health. Promising new information provided by Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Yale University School of Medicine, has indicated that using vibrators can help treat these symptoms.

One of the causes of poor vaginal muscle tone and dryness is from decreased blood flow to the reproductive organs and pelvis in women. Vibrators have been shown to help stimulate pelvic blood flow as well as promote healthy vaginal contractions, which strengthen the pelvic muscles. This can be a wonderful alternative to hormonal treatments, as it is noninvasive as well as pleasurable for women to use. Menopausal women report increases in vaginal moisture, pelvic floor strength and an increase in libido when using vibrators.

What should I know about choosing a vibrator?

The most important thing in choosing a vibrator is to ensure that you select one that is nontoxic and phthalate free. Phthalates are plasticizers used in many vibrators to soften the plastics and are known endocrine disrupters that cause a variety of health problems, such as breast cancer, metabolic interference and liver damage to name just a few.

What lubricant should I use if any?

As vibrators create friction, it is a good idea to use a personal lubricant and using one helps with issues surrounding vaginal dryness. As different vibrators are made with varying materials, from silicone to elastomers, which can have a variety of chemical interactions with different types of lubricants, it is always a good idea to choose a water-based lubricant, as they are safe to use with any type of material. Look for water-based lubricants that are paraben free, because parabens have been linked to a variety of health problems.

Kegel exercise can also help

Kegel exercises strengthen the pubococcygeus muscles and help to support vaginal muscle tone. Doing these simple exercises can improve sexual functioning as well as prevent urinary incontinence. For more information on how to do them, see this Kegel Exercise Instruction article.
