Women and Sex Drive

Natural sexual changes in women due to ageing

 

The physical changes in a woman’s body happen due to menopause and reduced estrogen levels. Reduced estrogen results in the thinning of vagina walls, dryness and decreased lubrication. Due to the decreased elasticity of the vagina, intercourse becomes painful and may result in bleeding due to friction as there is no lubrication. The size of the vaginal canal decreases in size as the plumpness or fatty deposits around the vaginal walls are lost.

 

Tips for women before having sex

 

1. Indulge in foreplay

 

Indulge in foreplay for a longer time to trigger natural lubrication. Use water-based lubricants such as KY jelly to make sex easy and comfortable. Consult your doctor whether Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can help you.

 

2. Have a positive frame of mind

 

Develop a positive frame of mind towards sex. Many women view menopause as the end of life which is completely absurd. Enjoy the phase as you do not have to worry about menstruation or pregnancy. Changes in the vagina especially its slight shrinkage can sometimes provide better feel and pleasure due to penetrative friction but one must consider using a lubricant to avoid any injury.
