Vibrators Ease Menopause Symptoms

In a recent Huffington Post article, Yale University School of Medicine clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology Dr. Mary Jane Minkin shared her prescription for women suffering from uncomfortable menopause symptoms: vibrator use.

In a candid and informative interview, she explains that regular vibrator use counteracts vaginal dryness and weakened muscle tone associated with menopause. An alternative to hormonal treatment, regular vibrator use improves “reproductive and pelvic health help by stimulating pelvic blood flow, which increases vaginal moisture and boosts sexual response, all of which making sex (with or with a partner) more enjoyable.”

Good Vibrations¬† is an accessible resource for sexual health and pleasure and has long been a recommended resource for doctors and patients. Dr. Minkin’s advice is in line with the company’s philosophy of sexual health and wellness that it has been sharing for thirty-six years including recommending vibrator use for pleasure and overall physiological health whether having solo or coupled sex. Good Vibrations also makes and carries Please, a water-based lube that works great for anyone with sensitivities and vaginal dryness issues.

Dr. Minkin explains, “Therapeutically, frequent vibrator use can prevent and ward off conditions such as painful vaginal dryness and atrophy. Within a month, women should notice a difference (even past menopause). …The reality is, vibrators are a great, no-side effect solution to an issue that millions of women suffer from. My goal is to educate women that vibrators aren’t something to be embarrassed about — not only are they fun, but they also help women stay comfortable and happy during this sometimes uncomfortable stage in life.”

“It’s always noteworthy when medical professionals realize the value of sexual pleasure to overall health,” says Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist Carol Queen, PhD. “Dr. Minkin’s patients are very fortunate to have such a savvy and aware physician. Over the years Good Vibrations has often worked with in-the-know MDs, and we are very honored to partner with doctors to help support healthy sexuality and overall wellbeing.”
