Has menopause changed your sex life?
I suppose you have a wife or you as a wife have completed menopause. Have you increased, decreased or remained the same in your sexual desire and sexual frequency?
My DW has become more emotionally open to sexual desires now past menopause. And that has resulted in some more sexual encounters. But it is difficult to separate what is simply post menopause with what are other life changes in attitudes, beliefs, etc. I read and was waiting for the incredible post menopause sex life. I mean, its great now, but what it could have been…..
It has changed in a few ways.
No longer is there the worry about getting pregnant!
As contraceptives aren’t needed, there is more freedom and spontaneity!
In addition, there are no more periods. Period! So that means any time of the month is good.
Also less concerns about cramps, mess, etc. So, a lot more convenient and fun!
I’d say it’s all good!
I am less than 2 years into menopause and over the past 6 months or so, I’ve noticed a decrease in libido. I mentally want to have sex, but I don’t crave it physically (feeling horny) like I used to. I assume it’s due to less estrogen and progesterone being produced in my body. I’m lucky that I seem to have escaped any other symptoms. Otherwise, it really hasn’t changed our sex life, because I’m still ready, willing, and able.
Our sex life plummeted too. My wife lost nearly any desire for sex. I have read about 50% of post menopause women nearly completely loose interest n sex, another 30% or so stay the same or slightly less and the other 20% might go up. I have a friend whose wife got really horny after menopause and has stayed that way. He said they have way more sex now than they ever did.
