Sex at Midlife: What We Aren't Talking About

One of the most common menopausal complaints I hear from my blog readers is their lack of sex drive, and since most are in their 40's or early 50's, they have legitimate concerns and fears that they will never enjoy sex again. It can ruin marriages. This article from Third Age discusses some of the changes that women experience as they reach perimenopause and menopause. It's unfortunate that a lot of women are uncomfortable talking to their doctors about this, as sexuality is a wonderful, natural part of life, and there is so much that can be done to improve sex drive and alleviate uncomfortable physical symptoms that interfer with sexual activity.
