Tips for healthy and enjoyable sex
Childbirth and menopause can present some challenges, but neither milestone represents the end of your sex life. An open conversation with your doctor might help you find answers to your questions.
I would like to help you find some answers. During my talk at Girls’ Day Out on August 15, we’ll discuss sexual issues ranging from hormonal changes to medical conditions, skin problems, and emotional issues such anxiety or depression.
For women 50 and better, one common cause of difficulty during sex is vulvovaginal atrophy, a medical name for a vulva and vagina that no longer have the benefits of estrogen. The decline in estrogen production during menopause can thin vaginal tissue, causing dryness, burning and pain. These changes can lead to a vagina that is less stretchy, less lubricated, and less comfortable during intercourse. You’re not alone if you’re feeling the effects of a drop in estrogen as hot flashes, trouble sleeping and vaginal dryness.
If you’ve ever had difficulty getting a doctor to address your questions about sex, come listen on August 15 and learn more about your anatomy, origins and maintenance of libido, and how to achieve comfortable sex. Bring your questions.
