Menopause And low libido

Treatments for Loss of Libido

Woman in a yoga pose: yoga can help to reduce stress and control loss of libidoDuring the tremulous period of menopause, one of the most potentially frustrating yet widely experienced symptoms is the loss of libido. Feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and depression may follow, as well as problems in relationships.

What is not often understood by women is how this symptom comes about and how to cope with it when it does. Through a greater understanding of one's own libido it is possible to bring it back and enjoy an even greater intimacy with one's partner during the golden years of life. Treatment is not only possible, but it is more easily attained than most expect.

Fortunately, as loss of libido is commonly directly attributed to the shifts in estrogen and testosterone that accompany menopause, it is possible to address the problem at its hormonal source. It used to be typical to prescribe hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to treat this fundamental imbalance; however, persistent links to breast and ovarian cancer, along with heart disease and blood clots have caused most healthcare professionals to rethink this drastic option.

Many agree that the most effective approach is to combine changes in lifestyle with alternative treatment options.

JUST got diagnosed and I'm DEVASTATED

I've suffered from depression in the past, and recently I've been having all kinds of weird symptoms. Honestly, I thought it had to be something hormonal. I've been feeling weepy, cranky, suffering from insomnia, having a hard time concentrating, low libido, etc. And then sometimes all of sudden I have amazing energy, feel on top of the world, happy and full of self confidence. But not for any apparent reason.
I've been reading about menopause and pre-menopause (I'm 40) and a lot of my symptoms seemed to match. So I went to see my OB/GYN and had my hormone levels measured, which all came back normal
