Middle age and menopause don't have to mean your sex life is impaired or worse, over. Heck, there are even solutions and treatments for sex after menopause.
But there can be additional challenges such as trying to find vaginal dryness relief, loss of libido or sexless marriage, crashing fatigue in menopause, even embarrassment over body changes that make us feel less than sexy.
Our menopause health clinic's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Rebecca Dunsmoor-Su, spends a lot of time at her practice helping women regain their vibrant sex lives, and one thing she does is recommend books by Dr. Laurie Mintz, particularly A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex.
In this podcast, Dr. Dunsmoor-Su got to chat directly with Dr. Mintz about all the things that can dampen the spark and how to reignite it.
If you need help reigniting your sex life, a menopause-certified health coach can be helpful. Book 30 minutes for your personal consultation with a health coach.
