You might’ve heard that sex becomes boringas you age, but for women, it’s more complicated than that. When we hit menopause, our fluctuating hormones create symptoms that can negatively affect our libido. Some women experience the inability to self-lubricate, thinning vaginal walls, and even painful sex, all of which can affect sex drive.
Men and women have a shared experience of decreasing libido as they age, but for men, Viagra is available to improve erectile function. While this effectively allows men to feel as though they can turn back the hands of time, women historically have not been so lucky. We deserve to feel vibrant and viral in our second half of life!
The good news is the hormonal changes that accompany your menopause transition don’t have to erode your sex life and relationship. Read on about Viagra for women and other ways to have a healthy and happy sex life, well beyond your 40s.
