Where did my sex drive go? I use to love to have sex and was always ready but after menopause I just do not have any sex drive anymore, what can I do? Advice please….
“The loss of estrogen following menopause can lead to changes in a woman’s sexual drive and functioning. Menopausal and postmenopausal women may notice that they are not as easily aroused, and may be less sensitive to touching and stroking — which can result in decreased interest in sex.
In addition, lower levels of estrogen can cause a decrease in blood supply to the vagina. This decreased blood flow can affect vaginal lubrication, causing the vagina to be too dry for comfortable intercourse.
A lower estrogen level is not the only culprit behind a decreased libido; there are numerous other factors that may influence a woman’s interest in sexual activity during menopause and after. These include:
* Bladder control problems
* Sleep disturbances
* Depression or anxiety
* Health concerns” – you can find more information on this SITE
I would consult your doctor and get advice on what you can do or what you can take to help get your sex drive back. Unfortunately our bodies go into different reactions when it comes to menopause and there is nothing wrong with this. You have noticed the problem which is the first step, now talk to a doctor and see what you can do to get that sex drive back.
