Sexual desire is a trait that women naturally have, and it’s mostly meant to initiate the process of reproducing. Unfortunately, it is normal for this desire to drop as women get past the childbearing age. If you’re over the age of 40 and find that sex is getting more difficult, there are things you can do to rejuvenate your sex life. Here are some tips for improving sex after menopause.
Why do women lose sexual desire?
The causes of sexual decline vary in different women. It all depends on your sexual and medical history. Here are some things that can negatively affect a woman’s sex drive and sometimes cause vaginal dryness:
- Weight gain or loss
- Issues within the relationship
- History of sexual abuse
- Mental health concerns
- Hormonal imbalances
- New medications
How to Enjoy Sex after Menopause
If you’re having trouble with initiating or enjoying sex after menopause, doctors suggest you think of sex like you do exercise. You may not be addicted to the activity, but you know it’s good for you. And after you do it successfully, you may end up enjoying it and wishing to do it more often. Maintaining a healthy sex life requires practice, patience, and open communication amongst partners.
Vaginal rejuvenation can help
If you have issues of pain or vaginal dryness associated with sexual intercourse, don’t ignore any of those symptoms. Speak with your doctor about your concerns and discuss your options for hormonal and nonhormonal solutions.
In addition to at-home methods like Kegel exercises, the FemiLift vaginal tightening laser can help women improve their sexual feeling. This quick, noninvasive procedure can be done in your doctor’s office, and many women say they start feeling the improvement after one appointment.
