Now there is an alternative therapy for those who are unable to undergo other treatment options for the vaginal and sexual changes that occur due to perimenopause and menopause.
What is the MonaLisa Touch?

How does it work?

Heading to the Gym: Fitness Tips

It's tough to know how exercise is going to translate into health for all your body parts, and ultimately end up with the right amount of fitness, the ideal weight range, and your healthiest body shaping while maintaining healthy bones, joints, breasts and waist.

But scientific researchers with their headlamps, their magnifying scopes, and their swabs have a whole different take on the question. So what do they test for? PSA. Prostate-specific antigen. It only occurs in men. If found in the vagina after sex protected by a condom, you guessed right: LEAKAGE! Now with the female condom, slippage, invaginating (sort of folding inward), or the peni…
