An Intimacy Game Changer for Relieving Painful Sex

An estimated 75% of women have experienced painful sex.

Menopause and Osteoporosis: How to Take Charge of Your Bone Health

By Sheryl Kraft One minute, I was walking across a bathroom floor in my hotel room in Arizona, heading from the shower to grab a bar of soap at the sink. The next minute, I was in the air, with only seconds to defend myself. In those seconds, my mind told me I was falling, and my body acted reflexively: my hands stretched themselves out in an effort to break the fall.
