Menopause and Sexuality

How do menopause and sexuality affect your libido? What can you expect once your vagina loses some elasticity, your period stops, and sexual relations no longer hold the possibility of pregnancy? All of these physical and mental changes affect the woman’s libido and sexual appetite. It really does depend on whether you genuinely enjoyed your sex life up to now or if you were just having sex because it was expected from you.

Since many women rate their femininity by their ability to bear children, it takes a great attitudinal adjustment to realize that getting pregnant is no longer an option.

It should be a time of great freedom. Instead of bemoaning what once was, enjoy what is now. With freedom from pregnancy comes the ability to relax, confident in your body’s ability to work well while continuing to serve our sexual need for satisfaction.

Now sex play can once again become spontaneous if you’re with the same partner, and planned with condoms if you are not.

After 12 months without a period, a woman is officially in menopause. Where there was once copious amounts of natural lubrication, now there’s nary a trickle, and sex can be uncomfortable. During menopause, the mucous membranes start thinning, and along with a loss of elasticity in the walls of the vagina, cause an uncomfortable sensation of dryness.

The thinning of the vaginal lining results from the ovaries' decreased production of estrogen. This thinning does not always cause problems, but it can be painful if the lining becomes inflamed, dry, and rough. Estrogen creams and pills are the common allopathic solution, but these products have serious risks.

Available now is the newest topical cream that will replenish genitals so that discomfort is a thing of the past. The fantastic new Sex Butter can be used liberally for relief from the effects of decreased estrogen.

It’s better to follow the ‘use it or lose it’ motto to keep the vagina working well throughout menopause. Having sex regularly is one way to keep the vagina elastic, lubricating and working efficiently. Another is by doing 200 - 300 Kegel exercises per day.

Start by doing 10. Each day add 10 until you've reached the recommended amount. This constant care of the vagina will help keep it youthful, working properly, and having a lot less problems during menopause and sexuality will improve because of them.

To compensate for dryness caused by a reduction in natural hormones, a good quality water-based lubricant smeared at the vaginal opening or along the phallus should keep penetration comfortable.

Saliva as a lubricant is never enough against the rigors of sexual friction. If you’re wondering why it hurts after using spit, it’s because the spit dried up and you’re left with friction, which produces even more dryness.


At the most inconvenient time you may experience a hot flash. Compensate by taking Black Cohorsh and Soy products to reduce their intensity.

Not every woman loses her libido entirely during peri-menopause, although some may temporarily. Many women simply have a decreased interest in sex - often it's simply because they generally don't feel well and sex is the last thing on their mind. Vitamin supplements help, as does regular exercise and meditation.


A natural way to increase libido is with exercise. By taking a brisk walk, practicing yoga or 20 mintues of stretching, you can produce the feel good hormones called endorphins.

For menopause and sexuality to mesh as the best time of your life, it’s best to stay abreast of the changes and compensate as necessary with natural cures.

Additional lubrication and increased exercise are two areas that you should never skimp on during this phase of your life. It’s the difference between pleasure and pain.

When it comes to menopause and sexuality, life gets better with consciously making choices for the improvement of your life with minor adjustments and a positive, accepting attitude.
