One of the problems often faced in a long term relationship is the women’s lack of sex drive once they reach menopause. Some men feel threatened by their partners lack of libido. They begin to feel like they have done something wrong or that they are not longer sexually attractive. Although this may be the case in some situations; most of the time it couldn’t be further from the truth.
Estrogen Takes A Dive
Women in their mid 30’s to their 60’s often run into low libido problems. Although hormones are often held accountable; other factors can play a role. By the time menopause begins estrogen begins to decrease. Women find it harder to get aroused. They begin to lose sensitivity and they begin to experience vaginal dryness. Instead of feeling good; sex begins to feel bad.
Stress: The Libido Killer
Lubricants can definitely help with the dryness and may even spur some sensation, but the libido needs more. Stress is a libido killer. Life can be stressful and the last thing some older women want to think about is sex. There are things you can do to relieve stress. Find ways to manage your stress. Diet and exercise can help improve libido as well.
Foreplay is very important when arousal is hard to achieve. Slow massaging that leads to oral sex can go a long way in the libido boosting process. When women go through menopause they need support and understanding. It is a time when the man has to be patient and find ways to increase their partners libido instead of complaining about the lack of sex.
