Does Menopause Affect Sexual Drive? - 04/26/2012

Women go through a lot of challenges in their physical health as they age. They get the monthly period early in their teens, they carry a child for nine months before delivering it to this world when they get married and when they approach their mid-life, they experience the period of menopause. So who says it’s easy to be a woman?

In terms of sex, the trend can be similar to how the body ages. But it cannot be denied that there are still senior women who can do it with their partners. Menopause cannot even stop a woman from engaging in sex if she so desires.

Experts, however, pointed out that during the menopausal years, the personal touch elicits a better response. In short, there has to be more caring, sensitivity and consistency involved. They stressed that menopause does not necessarily mean a woman losing interest in the pleasurable activity.

The low libido or low sexual desire can be attributed to several factors, according to medical authorities. These include the state of her relationship, age, illness and medications among others.

It’s true that during this menopausal stage, a woman’s hormones drop but it does not totally affect her sexual activity. Losing interest in sex can be experienced even before women reach their menopause. There are reasons behind it such as an unattractive partner or a spouse she does not very close to. What the experts are trying to say is that the lifestyle as well as the emotional and physical health of a woman plays a bigger role in her desire to have sex.

Vaginal dryness is not even an issue because according to the medical doctors, there are lubricants and hormone creams readily available. These products help greatly in relieving burning sensation, soreness and irritation that women may experience as a result of the thinning and drying of their vaginal wall lining.

An important point that women going through menopause should also know is that they’re not exempted from getting pregnant or acquiring STDs just because their period has stopped. Practicing safe sex by using condoms and other contraception tool should still be a priority because when it comes to acquiring and spreading sexually transmitted diseases, no one is spared.

Finally, don’t feel too confident as well that you will no longer get pregnant at this stage. Experts recommend using a proven contraceptive including the condom 12 months after your last period if possible.
