In this article, I’m going to be debunking the myth: menopause destroys your sex life. There are physiological changes that are inevitable as we age and lose sex hormones, testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. Namely, it’s important for you and your partner to know what these changes are so you can better address them.
For instance, loss of libido may lead to decreased frequency. Decreased pleasure sensation can make having orgasm impossible or at least difficult vaginal dryness and micro tears at the vag vaginal lining can lead to painful intercourse.
So what can you do about this?
You may wanna find a menopause specialist that can help you with replacing lost hormones. I favor bioidenticals as they’re identical to our own hormones. They’re also phytohormones derived from plants. For example, maka for testosterone loss. Maka is a plant that grows on the mountains, in the Andes Mountains and is cultivated as a root vegetable for the last 3000 years.
Communicate with your partners to understand what’s changing. Make time for pleasure and adapt to ensure a mutually satisfying intimacy as your bodies age. And for dryness, use a chemical and water free vaginal moisturizer, include more focus on forplay and also labial moisturizing. So there you have it, another myth debunked about menopause.
