Having A Healthy Sex Life After Menopause

Dry Leaf © lynette sheppard

Loss of desire. Vaginal dryness. Painful intercourse. All of these Menopausal symptoms might seem like the beginning of the end of a vibrant sex life. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I’m a big fan of vaginal lubricants (check out the Menopause Marketplace for a few recommendations.) Vaginal estrogen can also help (prescription required).  Now I’m delighted to highlight another great find: Replens Long-Lasting Feminine Moisturizer It’s not a lubricant and contains no estrogen. It is an actual moisture that replaces or enhances your own vaginal moisture. You can use it and it lasts 3-5 days.

    what do you do when your partner has taken a vow of celibecy? nogt asking you about doing so just doing it ? fedility on his part has been a serious issue prior to that . How is that for a thorney set of issue?

    Yep that is a thorny set of issues, for sure. An interesting tidbit: often times a man’s sex drive will decrease too. Usually, there seem to be 2 reactions to this – an overamping of wanting sex (sort of a going against what is happening) or a pulling back. Sounds like some discussion is in order, in any case. Good luck!
