No Sex Please, We’re Menopausal…

When menopause and midlife mayhem descends, it’s not uncommon to lose your libido as sex can become uncomfortable and painful and often women feel like they have been switched off from the waist downwards.

MENOPAUSAL SEX ISSUES

Gone are the days when you roll over in the mornings hoping your partner is in the mood for some fun.

Hormonal changes at the time of the menopause cause night sweats and insomnia, often resulting in a reduced libido, so instead of snuggling up for comfort and love you are only too pleased to be in your own space, busy throwing off the covers as the hot flushes take control of your body.

Excess weight, which often accumulates at midlife, makes you feel unattractive and lack of sleep leaves you feeling exhausted and stressed.

When you do manage to finally cool down and find the time, hoping you will stay cool long enough to engage in passion, you may be fearful that intercourse will be a nightmare, leaving you feeling sore instead of satisfied.

If this is you, it’s important to know you are not alone. It happens to so many of us at the menopause and in fact, I’ve conducted surveys and discovered that over 50% of menopausal women can’t have an orgasm and have a dry vagina.

For many women, this is the worst timing as they finally have more time with their partner with kids growing up and now, instead of feeling sexy, they are curled up on the edge of the bed not wanting to be touched because you’re afraid of what’s going to happen.

Progesterone also plays an important role in libido levels. However, during the menopause, levels of progesterone are reduced, resulting in loss of libido. Despite all the changes you may be experiencing, it is important to keep things in perspective.

The menopause need not be the end of life as you once knew it, but rather the beginning of a new phase that can be just as exciting and rewarding as your earlier years.

Your body may be changing, but you can still find ways to rekindle libido, keeping the spark alive. There is a great deal you can do to make this transition as smooth as possible with a little knowledge.

I’ve spent many years educating women how to beat menopause symptoms naturally, based on published medical research. I believe every woman can get through the symptoms of menopause, including midlife libido loss, by making a few diet and lifestyle changes.
Here’s how to do it.

  • The main step you need to take is to start supplying your body with naturally occurring oestrogen through your diet and supplements.
  • If you are very dehydrated, lubrication is going to become a problem for your body so you have to drink plenty of water.
  • You should also consider taking sea buckthorn oil, Vitamin E, zinc and magnesium, coconut oil and Omega 7 Sea Buckthorn capsules to help alleviate vaginal dryness and discomfort.
  • Lady Prelox, the natural remedy rich in pycnogenol from the French Pine bark, has been shown to increase libido significantly.
  • Finally, although it can be hard, start having regular sex and spend plenty of time on foreplay to help vaginal lubrication.

Be assured, it is possible to get your hormones working normally again and resume a comfortable sexual relationship with a big smile on your face.
