What Causes Menopause Libido Problems?

Females are complex creatures when it comes to sex. Compared to their male Libido_ErosCreamcounterparts of the same age group, women can’t just swallow a little blue pill to fix their plumbing problem (Although some women are known to use a little Viagra now and then).

Women’s sexuality is more complicated than that and many reasons lie in the “mind over body” category.

The low menopause sex drive has two aspects.

  • Desire (libido)
  • Arousal

Solutions for low menopause sex drive have to look at both:

  • Arousal issues are often caused by estrogen deficiency and vaginal dryness.
  • Libido issues can be hormonal, or emotional and psychological – or (most often) a combination of all factors.
Doctors have a name for low libido:
If your lack of desire causes undue distress and leads to problems in your life, it is called Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder or HSDD.

Low sexual libido is not a disease. Only you can decide what “normal desire” is. There is absolutely no definition or norm.

Aging is a big part of the problem. But this generation of woman is certainly not satisfied with fading gently into the sunset. So check out the solutions if you are looking for ideas to wake up your hibernating libido.


 Women are hoping for an FDA approved drug soon. Currently two drugs are in clinical trials that avoid the hormonal route and work on the central nervous system.

But because female sexuality is such a complicated issue that goes way beyond the physical aspects, women will always have to experiment with different individual solutions to find what works.

The good news is:

    • There are finally some good studies underway that address sexual dysfunction in women of all ages to give us more answers.
  • Menopause is the perfect time to shed some old inhibitions and stop being driven by fear. Post menopause sex might be better than ever (true for a good part of women) if you take action. No worries about pregnancy, no kids at home, and fewer inhibitions are all positive things for healthy intimacy.
And most important: Have fun experimenting with different solutions!
