Menopause and Loss of Sexual Desire and Drive
Perimenopause and menopause can create a host of symptoms both physical and emotional. These are largely caused by the loss of estrogen and testosterone, which can lead to hot flashes, cold flashes, sleep disturbances and more.
Menopausal and post-menopausal women may also notice that they experience a marked reduction of interest in sexual desire and drive and are less sensitive to arousal.
Younger women often experience sexual dysfunction as a result of stress, antidepressants or relationship issues, but women who are experiencing perimenopause or menopause are more likely to experience a loss of interest due to physical changes. Reduced hormone levels may also lead to reduced blood flow to the genitals, which can decrease natural lubrication and increase discomfort during sex.
Although hormones are the likeliest culprit when a woman experiences a loss of sexual desire and drive, other factors related to menopause may also play a role. Stress, bladder control problems, sleep disturbances, medications or health concerns can all interfere with a woman’s desire.
