Sexuality in menopause is tricky. Libido may be less robust than in previous years, or missing altogether.

Vaginal dryness or atrophy can make penetrative sex painful.

Weight gain, digestive issues, hair loss, and dry skin can leave us feeling distinctly unsexy and give our self-esteem a gut punch.

Add to that the challenges of a verrrrrrry long stretch of "us time," and romance, intimacy, menopause and sex become about as interesting as cleaning out the refrigerator.

Covid-19 sexual health in menopause with Dr Laurie Mintz
