Sex, Menopause and Anti-Aging Therapy

When Rochester Hills isn’t looking as sexy anymore, it may be time to look into anti-aging therapy

Loss of sexual interest isn’t something that only affects the elderly. Recent studies show that desire problems in women tend to peak in a 20-year window between the ages of 35 and 65. After that, the majority of women will experience reduced sexual interest.

It’s not just a little bit of disinterest that we are talking about here. Alongside lost interest, women often experience sexual withdrawal, pain during intercourse, and in some cases even an increased risk for depression. There is a compilation of reasons at fault for this occurrence. When it happens, as well as how severely it happens, typically correlates to some basic health issues, including weight level and typical level of activity. However, there are other factors at play here.

Understanding Why

When you are trying to figure out why your sexual interest level may be dropping, it doesn’t help to try to pinpoint a single cause. It is often a combination of factors, which may include:

  • Hormone fluctuations: This is one of the primary reasons many women experience changes in sexual interest. The main culprit is estrogen, which drops severely when menstruation ceases.
  • High stress levels: This can cause mental anguish, and that may result in sexual withdrawal.
  • Mental health issues: Many women experience depression or anxiety as they age, especially around the middle-aged years when retirement is insight, which for many coincides with teenage children and looming tuition bills. This can cause stress, which may result in lost sexual interest. In addition, some anti-depressant medications are known to mute sexual desire.
  • Weight gain: Many women begin to gain weight around their middle-aged years, and this can reduce sexual desire, as well.

Anti-aging therapy can help restore sexual interest in some situations. This is especially true when hormones and bodily changes are at play. Approximately 20% of women will experience something called hypoactive sexual desire during and after their menopause years. This is a condition marked by the complete cessation of sexual interest.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is proven to help reduce the symptoms of hypoactive sexual desire, including vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse and diminished sexual interest. BHRT supports healthy sexual activity in women by restoring depleted levels of testosterone and estrogen, thereby restoring sexual interest to previous levels.

In addition to supporting a healthier sex life, BHRT and anti-aging therapy can also support other issues commonly associated with aging, including reduced energy levels, increased weight gain and problems with bone strength.

Menopause marks the end of fertility, but that doesn’t need to mean the end of romance.  When it comes to a lack of sexual desire, remember: it’s not you—it’s nature that is causing the problem. Antiaging can help you regain your libido, and help make sex enjoyable again.
