What Is Low Libido?

Low libido, often referred to as decreased libido or low sex drive, can be a distressing symptom experienced by many women during menopause. It involves a decrease in sexual desire and interest in sexual activities, which can significantly impact a woman’s intimate relationships and overall well-being. Low libido is attributed to hormonal imbalances, particularly the decline in estrogen and testosterone levels.

What causes Low Libido?

Estrogen and testosterone play essential roles in regulating sexual desire and arousal in women. During menopause, a woman’s ovaries produce less estrogen and testosterone, leading to hormonal imbalances that affect various aspects of her body, including sexual function. The decrease in estrogen can lead to vaginal dryness and discomfort during intercourse, contributing to a decline in sexual desire. Additionally, reduced testosterone levels can further diminish libido.
The physical and emotional changes that accompany menopause, such as mood swings, fatigue, and body image concerns, can also influence a woman’s sexual desire and confidence.

How To Overcome  Low Libido

During menopause, some women may notice an increase in allergies or heightened sensitivity to allergens.

Prioritize self-care and stress reduction techniques, such as meditation, yoga, or spending time doing activities you enjoy. Reducing stress can positively influence your libido.

Regular physical activity can boost blood circulation, enhance mood, and promote a positive body image, all of which may contribute to an improved libido.

Aim for sufficient, quality sleep to help regulate hormonal function and improve overall well-being.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help restore hormonal balance and alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances, including low libido
