Fortunately, many of the signs and symptoms associated with menopause are temporary. Take the following steps to help reduce or prevent their effects: Cool hot flashes Dress in layers, have a cold glass of water or go somewhere cooler. Try to pinpoint what triggers your hot flashes. For many women, triggers may include hot beverages, caffeine, spicy foods, alcohol, stress, hot weather and even a warm room. Decrease vaginal discomfort Use over-the-counter, water-based vaginal lubricants (Astroglide, K-Y jelly, others) or moisturizers. Choose products that don’t contain glycerin, which can cause burning or irritation in women who are sensitive to that chemical. Staying sexually active also helps by increasing blood flow to the vagina. Get enough sleep Avoid caffeine, which can make it hard to get to sleep, and avoid drinking too much alcohol, which can interrupt sleep. Exercise during the day, although not right before bedtime. If hot flashes disturb your sleep, you may need to find a way to manage them before you can get adequate rest. Practice relaxation techniques Techniques such as deep breathing, paced breathing, guided imagery, massage and progressive muscle relaxation can help relieve menopausal symptoms.
