Sit down. We have to talk. There’s a crisis that’s about to happen in the coming years that none of the presidential candidates are talking about. It’s bigger than global warming. It’s “so huge” that it may cause emotional upheaval in this country due to the enormity of the population that is currently — and is going to be — impacted by this unfortunate feminine physical condition.

What am I talking about? Can you guess?

The Trends Tell The Story
I’ll give you some hints. It has to do with post 50 women. Just listen to these stats. These facts are from The National Association of Baby Boomer Women:

By 2030, 54% of the 78 million American Boomers will be women.
By 2030, there will be 71.5 million Americans age 65 or older, more than double the number currently within that demographic. And more than half of them will be women. We’re a mammoth population that is growing. And you know what physical changes happen during our post 50 years?

Can you guess what I’m talking about now?

Okay, let me give you some additional clues:
It happens during menopause, or sometimes when you are peri-or-post.
It’s part of the changes that occur during our midlife years, especially with the decrease in estrogen in our body.
You may even be experiencing it now and don’t know what to do.

Still trying to figure it out?

Okay, I’m going to tell you. It’s vaginal dryness. No wonder none of the candidates are taking on this issue. There is nothing to debate. (Although you would think Hillary would be aware of the importance of solving this problem and have a Town Hall on the subject. It might make her more relatable.)

Boomer women have been a force for change since the 60s, so we can talk openly about this subject and others. There’s no need to live in what feels like a desert of dryness. My friends at the Replens™ brand know the repercussions and have figured out solutions. They clearly see what’s ahead with the increasing population of post 50 women. They want us to be happy and well moisturized for our second act. They asked me to share their news with you so I thought I’d tackle the topic head on.

Replens™ Is Doctor Recommended!
Replens™ is the #1 doctor-recommended brand of vaginal moisturizers. They offer Replens™ Long-Lasting Vaginal Moisturizer, which is estrogen-free and fragrance-free. It replenishes vaginal moisture, supplements the body’s natural lubrication, and lasts up to 3 days. There is also Replens™ Silky Smooth Personal Lubricant, which enhances intimacy, and delivers a soft and silky feeling. Replens™ products are available at all major mass, food, and drug retailers across the U.S. More information is available on their website and Facebook page.

Replens; vaginal dryness; baby boomer women; post 50 There’s no need to suffer in silence. It’s time to take action if your V walls are dry or flaking and it’s impacting your intimate relationships. I know I don’t want my V to be like the head of a shriveled up apple-head doll  — my nana used to have one of those dolls in her kitchen when I was a kid. It always freaked me out. My nana would never have uttered a word about menopause symptoms or even mentioned the word aloud in her day.

Sadly, there are other peri, meno, and post-meno symptoms that are also going to be  “huge” in the coming years. Hot flashes, night sweats, memory lapses, insomnia, mood swings, headaches, the middle-aged middle, weight gain, bat-winged arms, and more. I wish the Replens™ brand could develop some equally simple solutions for these manifests. How about it team?

For now, I’m still voting for Replens™. Hopefully, the other candidates will change my mind by November.

Replens™ Long-Lasting vaginal moisturizer is different from most other lotions or lubricants because it contains a patented bio-adhesive ingredient that allows it to attach to dry vaginal cells and deliver continuous moisture for days.
