<p>Middle age and menopause don't have to mean your sex life is impaired or worse, over. Heck, there are even solutions and <a href="https://gennev.com/education/sex-after-menopause">treatments for sex after menopause</a>.</p>
<p>But there can be additional challenges such as trying to find <a href="https://gennev.com/education/feminine-dryness-remedies" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">vaginal dryness relief</a>, loss of libido or <a href="https://gennev.com/education/divorce-and-sexless-marriage" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">sexless marriage</a>, <a href="https://gennev.com/education/menopause-and-fatigue" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">crashing fatigue in menopause</a>, even embarrassment over body changes that make us feel less than sexy.&nbsp;</p>

<p>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.</p>
