Ask Our Experts: Episode 4
It’s important to understand that libido is much more complicated for women than it is for men. It’s unfortunately not a simple switch that we can easily turn off and on as it involves both physical and psychological components. With the onset of perimenopause or menopause, it may come as no surprise that your sex life may not be exactly the same as it was in your 20s. During perimenopause and menopause many women may struggle with a lower sex drive, vaginal dryness and discomfort, or even a weakening or absence of orgasm. This experiential evolution can be upsetting and disconcerting for some women, which is why it's important to always keep an open line of communication with your healthcare provider either during a routine exam or problem focused visit. Check out our full video below, featuring Bonafide Medical Advisor Dr. Alyssa Dweck to learn what can we do to better adjust to the sexual experience during perimenopause and menopause.
