Many women going through menopause battle with sexual changes which may range from vaginal dryness and pain during sex to difficulty achieving an orgasm. But by far the most distressing symptom is the loss of sexual desire. Low libido can impact your sense of self as well as your relationship with your partner.
Common Causes of Low Libido
While it’s very easy at this time of life to blame it all on the hormones, there are many other reasons why you may experience a loss of sexual desire, including stress, lack of sleep and medications. For women in particular, the brain is the most powerful sex organ, so it’s important to take into account what’s going on with you psychologically as well as physically.
The important thing to remember is that low libido doesn’t have to be permanent and there are plenty of solutions out there once you have isolated the cause. It is also possible to enjoy a satisfying sex life throughout your life so long as you address any problems as and when they arise.
