The hot flashes and vaginal dryness don’t stop because you’re on vacation but making sure you have the right tools in your pocket can make traveling a breeze.
Summer is finally here! You’ve been planning and looking forward to this trip for months. But with your departure date so close, your mind starts to wander towards your menopause symptoms. Will menopause affect your ability to enjoy travel? What if you get hot flashes on the plane? What if you have a mood swing as the evening starts to heat up and the romance is ruined?
Don’t worry. With proper preparation you can have a great time despite your menopause. Many women who go through menopause feel like they’ve just spent a week on the sun because they’re red hot from their hot flashes. But, you don’t have to let your menopause symptoms stand in the way of a good time.
Here are a few tips and tricks for enjoying the vacation you’ve been dreaming of all winter:
Stay out of the heat: Hot flashes tend to come on more often in warmer temperatures. Be smart about where to choose to go. Stay away from deserts such as Arizona or Utah. If you still want a sunny destination, find somewhere like Northern California where it’s sunny and usually stays under 80.
On the other hand, if you are at the beach, you may feel more comfortable wearing fewer layers and you’ll fit right in with the swimsuits and flip flops.
Keep it loose: When packing for your trip, go for loose fitting cottons. You want to be comfortable and cool – after all, you’re on vacation. If you sleep in a T-shirt or cotton nightgown, bring a couple more than you think you need. That way if you wake up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat you have a spare. If you are worried about suitcase space, you can always call the hotel ahead of time and ask if they have laundry services available or if there is a laundromat close by.
Go au naturel: Menopause can be difficult for couples as you find your sex drive is gone and vaginal dryness shoots down all possibility of sex. But you’re on vacation!

Keep your cool: Bring along a mini battery powered or hand held fan. Keep it in your purse so you can access it all times. You may even find this can come in handy in air conditioned buildings. Some women find it useful to keep chilled pillows or ice packs in the hotel room for those warm nights.
Pamper yourself: You’re on vacation. It’s time to relax. Go for a manicure or a massage. Stress is another known trigger for hot flashes, so try to leave your worries behind. If you find you need some time alone, tell your traveling companion, who will most likely understand. Go for a walk. Get some fresh air. Bottom line, enjoy yourself.
