Going through a menopause is one of the major moments in life, and it is not pleasant at all. You have to deal with hot flashes, night sweats, lack of bladder control, mood swings, weight gain, aching joints and muscles, just to mention a few. So, with all these things happening with your body, it is no wonder if your sex life takes a hit. Although single seniors are aware of what is happening with your body and won’t expect you to be in the mood for sex, this situation can be pretty annoying.
Low estrogen levels impact your vagina, which will cause issues such as lower libido. However, there are several solutions to your problem and if you follow these guidelines, your dating life doesn’t have to suffer at all.
You can’t get aroused
Every woman experiences dryness down there at some point in her life. This is why good people have invented lubricants. You might not find the right one immediately, but after some experimentation, you surely will. The best ones are water- or silicone-based lubes since the oil-based ones can cause infection.
You can’t have an orgasm
Unfortunately, the number of orgasms decreases and they get harder to achieve with age. Even when you have the big O, it is far less intense than it was before. If you are looking for a drug-free option, we suggest you experiment with sex toys. These can ‘prepare’ you for the sex with your partner and even make your orgasms more intense. However, you should clean them with soap and water and dry them after each use. Otherwise, they can harbor bacteria that cause various infections.
Sex is too painful
If you constantly feel pain during sex and there are no medical conditions which are causing it and even the lube doesn’t help, perhaps you should consider laser therapy. I know, it sounds awful, but it is actually not painful at all and a lot of women are claiming that it saved their sex lives. These lasers stimulate the production of collagen in your vagina which rebuilds the tissue and makes it moist. However, keep in mind that there are a lot of charlatans out there, so don’t believe a doctor who doesn’t have a clinical research to prove that their therapy is safe and effective. Before you undergo a procedure update your pap test and make sure that there are no other medical issues which might be causing the pain.
