What’s so great about cucumbers……well:
1. Cucumbers come in all shapes and sizes.
2. They never lose their shape
3. And they’re cool and smooth

Why is this on a menopausal blog?
…Because, after menopause the vagina tightens and shortens, resulting in
painful intercourse.
So painful in fact, that the thought of intercourse can make a woman cringe.
I recently attended a sex conference in San Diego (this was a legitimate course folks). Nothing kinky.

Straight Talk On Women’s Health And Wellness With Dr. Miriam Greene

Every time I appear on Dr. Greene’s sirius radio XM show Doctor Radio: Sexual Health and Gynecology, I get an abundance of calls and emails, such as this one:

“I’m looking forward to using your product!  We were on the road listening when you were on Doctor Radio and my husband was amazed at how frank, sensible, sensitive, caring and informative the program was.  This was a dramatic contrast to another program on men’s health which preceded Dr. Green’s hour.  Thank you for your participation, and for taking the long and hard road to product development for us all.”  (Thanks CK from San Diego California).

Dr. Miriam Greene

Dr. Greene has been my doctor of over 25 years.  She delivered my twin grandsons and one of my granddaughters.  Her compassion and dedication is shown in how she treats her patients.   The way she is in the delivery room is the same as how she is in her office or for that matter on her show. Her knowledge not only includes her expertise with medical facts as it relates to women, but her common sense with women’s health issues is remarkable.

Postmenopausal Bleeding | Dr. Greene

So I get this call from Estonia ? Does anyone know where Estonia is? Well anyway it’s 2:30 Sunday morning and my pager goes off.

UterusMy darling patient is in Estonia for a wedding and while there she has an episode of bleeding. Not too much but bright red. No cramps or symptoms of her period of course because she is 55 and postmenopausal. Pretty sure I mentioned that. She was alarmed and wanted to know what to do.

So what is postmenopausal bleeding?

  • How do you define it?
  • What does it mean?
  • What should you as a patient do?

Postmenopausal bleeding: Any bloody discharge large amount or
small amount, one year or longer after menopause.
