Maintaining Romance Beyond Valentine’s Day

While Valentine’s Day is a great reminder to show how much you appreciate your significant other, it doesn’t have to be on a specific day. As we age, our libido drops, and so can the romance in our relationship. However, with a little effort, you can regenerate that long-lost spark.

4 Tips To Maintain Romance Beyond Valentine’s Day

Communication: It’s essential to communicate with your partner about menopause. Because it can help him understand what you’re going through. This is especially true if the quality of your sex life has diminished. Though, it’s not too late to restore that spark, even if it means scheduling date night and if it feels you’re “going through the motions.” Relationships are work, and so is romance. There’s also nothing wrong with seeing a marriage and family therapist to help sort things out. A licensed professional can help repair any breakdowns in communication and even suggest ways to improve intimacy. When each party feels heard and understood, the closer you are to rebuilding trust and intimacy.

Maintaining Sexual Health: There are lots of benefits to maintaining sexual health during midlife. Some of the benefits of sex include improvements in sleep, brain function, reduced physical pain, and better cardiovascular health. Not to mention, working at and making time for intimacy can strengthen your relationship too. Don’t be shy, consider seeing your doctor to see if there is something they can recommend. Women experiencing vaginal dryness can try using water-based lubricants. Additionally, doing pelvic floor and kegel exercises can help strengthen your abdominal and vaginal muscles. Kegel and pelvic floor exercises are also beneficial for reducing frequent urination, which is another issue that occurs as women age and especially after having children.

Manage Hormonal Imbalance: During menopause, hormonal imbalance can play a key factor in low libido. In fact, reduced sexual desire is one of several symptoms related to a woman’s transition. Not only can Amberen Menopause help reduce multiple symptoms, but it also targets the root cause, which is hormonal imbalance. When hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, and other symptoms are under control, you’ll have more energy and time left to spend with your significant other. Additionally, there’s a potential that your libido can improve when your hormones aren’t going haywire.

Make Every Day Special: Valentine’s Day is a special day that is designated for couples everywhere. However, you can make every day special. You don’t need to wait once a year when February 14th comes around. You and your significant other can work together to do special things for one another, like making breakfast or an intimate candlelight dinner at home. Buying a random card and writing a personalized message “just because” to share your love is another inexpensive way to express yourself. Acts of kindness can be little demonstrations of love that you can do every day to show your partner they are unique and appreciated.

Final Thoughts

As the year’s pass, it takes genuine effort to keep romance in bloom. This may include working on it daily in order to keep the spark alive, even if things feel slightly staged at first. Eventually, the romance can become natural. You don’t have to put so much pressure on one day out of the year to feel special when you and your partner can make each other feel loved every day. Remember, along with prioritizing your relationship, it’s also important to love yourself by managing your menopause. Don’t let hot flashes, night sweats, low energy, mood swings, and more interfere with your relationship with your spouse. Take control of your symptoms with Amberen Menopause, a clinically tested, multi-symptom relief formula that targets hormonal imbalance so that you can feel like yourself again and have the energy to give love back.
