Provestra Review: Bring Back the Sex Goddess Within You

Provestra Bring Back the Sex Goddess Within You

Treat Yourself to Whatever Makes You Feel Sexy

It’s not appreciated that it has many roles. Nurturer. Lover. Listener. Provider. Hustler. And so on.

This does not stop even as we enter the menopausal stage where our body needs to be at healthiest in order to curb its symptoms.

In a study done by the University of Arizona’s School of Family and Consumer Resources, the researchers have found that they have „more distress-free days than men“. 

It’s about time that you put yourself first and rejuvenate. 

Stress Results to Hormonal Imbalances

Chronic imbalances in the woman’s body. These changes are further aggravated when our bodies get older. An unhealthy body entering menopause can worsen the symptoms of menopause as well as sweats and hot flashes.

Dr. Jane Oh, to OB-GYN in Illinois, said that when patients come because of hormonal imbalance, the root cause is always too much stress hormone. Stress hormones, or cortisol, affects every other hormones in our bodies, including sex hormones and thyroid. 

And you know what hormonal imbalances take away from us?

  • Lowered Sex Drive

When the last time you felt sensual? Elevated cortisol or stress hormones can suppress the body’s natural sex hormones. These hormones are estrogen, progesterone and testosterone which are needed for sexual desire.

With low libido, women are so less open to pleasure.

„The less sex we have, the more the tension grew,“ can be a common problem in marriages and it’s not the good child of tension. With libidos that do not match, partners felt undesired and women felt like they failed and their significant others. 

It can be frustrating when your body has no interest yet. 

Lowered Sex Drive

  • Decreased arousal

Arousal are signs of physical readiness in the body. More blood flows to the genitals, causing the labia, clitoris and upper body to swell. The vaginal walls become lubricated and moist. Muscles become tensed and nipples harden. All signs are ready for sex. 

However, low estrogen results to vaginal atrophy and vaginal dryness . This makes it harder and longer for arousal to be achieved. 

It can therefore lead to painful sex as the less estrogen results to a less elastic vagina. With less pliant walls, microscopic cuts and tears can lead to burning and irritation. 

In the United States, arousal problems cause distress or concern in 5% of women. This is higher by 7.5% in women ages 45 to 64 years old than in women 65 and older (6%) or younger than 45 (3%). 

  • No Orgasm

Estrogen and testosterone improves a person’s ability to orgasm. Without being able to orgasm, the brain wouldn’t cause „happy hormones“ to be released in the body such as endorphins, dopamine and oxytocin. These hormones cause pleasurable sensations, relaxation and feelings of happiness. 

Hormone changes and vaginal changes can make it difficult to achieve orgasm. 

With no orgasm, sex is anticlimatic and further lowers desire. 

This can be very frustrating as research has found that women in their 60s, 70s and 80s have more, not less, sexual desire. 

In a nationwide survey in US, it is found that 15% of women ages 57 to 85 were troubled by the lack of pleasure. In another nationwide survey, 5% sees the difficulty to achieve orgasm as a concern. In that survey, 6% of women age 45 to 64, says that they have problems climaxing. The results are the same for women age 65 and above.

No orgasm

  • Irregular Menstruations

Irregular periods can be troublesome, especially if a woman is trying to have kids. Chronic stress creates a prolonged release of cortisol and corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). These two hormones suppress reproductive hormones and causing abnormal ovulation, no ovulation or absence of menstruation. 

Chronic stress can also make you experience menopause symptoms at a more severe level, including pain, irritability and mood swings.

  • Depression

Women are more likely to experience depression symptoms than men because their bodies produce more stress hormones. The female sex hormone progesterone allows the stress hormone or cortisol ot last longer than it does in men. 

Depressive symptoms can include insomnia, over or undereating, harsh self-criticisms, guilt and worthlessness. 

The presence of elevated cortisol levels during sustained stress prevents the release of „happy hormones“. Happy hormones include dopamine that lights up our brain’s reward center during moments of pleasure and serotonin which is needed to regulate mood, appetite, libido and sleep. 

depression

  • Weight Gain

The body releases adrenaline and cortisol during stress. Adrenaline, is a fight-or-flight hormone that decreases appetite and prepares the body to take action.

Cortisol suppresses digestive, immune and reproductive responses that are non-essential during stress. Once the adrenaline wears off, cortisol is known to last longer in the bloodstream. Cortisol also makes you crave high energy foods, both that are easily used and stored, such as high sugar snacks and fatty food. 

  • Acne Breakouts

Stress can worsen acne but not cause it. This is especially true for acne-prone adults. During stress, hormones like cortisol, adrenal androgens and neuropeptides triggers the skin’s defense system. Sebaceous glands becomes inflamed and release excessive oil. This caused a greater amount of blackheads and whiteheads with redness and itching of the face. 

  • Hair Thinning

Hormonal imbalances, particularly falling estrogen levels, can disrupt the hair life cycle. 

Gaining Back Your Balance

If you’re plagued with low to zero libido at your 20s-40s, maybe you’ve been told that it’s all in your head. Maybe you’ve been with sex therapists and found out it’s not. 

If you’re concerned about not orgasming, maybe you’ve been dismissed it as part of ageing. Well, what it you can still enjoy sex no matter your age?

Whatever stage we are in life, our bodies can simply be telling us that we need to optimize our health by getting back our hormonal balance.
