How should I use a vaginal moisturizer?
Good In Bed answeredVaginal moisturizers can provide relief from vaginal dryness, soothing sore or irritated genitalia. In fact, you should make vaginal moisturizer use a regular part of your daily routine. The first time you start using a vaginal moisturizer, apply it seven days in a row, right before bed. After that, you can move into a maintenance schedule, applying it two to three times a week, before bed.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
Why do women have orgasms?
Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answered
Evolutionarily, having an orgasm was one of the ways that women could tell whether a man would be a good lifelong partner, because it could help women distinguish between a caring, patient male and a selfish or impatient one. Nevertheless, female orgasm can be so subtle that some women don't even know when they've had one. Many of the physical manifestations of a woman's orgasm are designed to help increase the chance that the sperm will find its target and fertilize the egg.
The fact that women can be stimulated to orgasm through not only the genitals, but also the mouth, nipples, and other parts of the body, points to the complexity of the system - and reinforces the fact that the true biology of sex really revolves around the brain. (One theory is that sexual stimuli are carried from the cervix and uterus to the brain through a branch of the nerve called the vagus nerve - one of the nerves stimulated during deep breathing and meditation.)

What gynecological conditions should I be aware of if I am over 65?
There are a number of common gynecological conditions that you should be aware of if you are age 65 or older. One of these is vaginal atrophy, which causes vaginal dryness and sensitivity. Hot flashes and postmenopausal bleeding are also a concern.
Ten percent of women who have bleeding after menopause will be found to have endometrial (uterine) cancer. It is important to catch any kind of cancer, especially endometrial, early when it is easier to treat and the cure rate is very high. Pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence are other conditions that may require treatment in this age group.
