“Although most women experience some changes in sexual function as they age, menopause and aging certainly do not signal the end of a woman’s sex life”.1

In Sexual Health & Menopause Online the NAMS elaborate on:

“…our understanding of how menopause and aging affect sexual health has grown a lot in recent years. This online resource is designed to share that understanding with women (and their partners) who want to get a handle on what menopause might mean for their sex lives. Although most women experience some changes in sexual function as they age, menopause and aging certainly do not signal the end of a woman’s sex life”.2

Health Care Provider

What if I would like help with sex?

If you would like help with sex, it may be in your best interest to choose to talk to your health care provider about this. The NAMS reassure:

“Sex and menopause are totally appropriate subjects for discussion in the health care setting, and solutions to midlife sexual problems are out there for the taking”.3

The NAMS also note:

“If your provider asks about your sex life or sexual function, don’t miss the opportunity to be frank and look for help. More important, if your provider doesn’t ask specifically about your sexual function, don’t be afraid to bring up a distressing sexual problem yourself when you’re asked, “How are you feeling?” Most providers today are comfortable addressing such a problem; if your provider is not, consider looking for another. There is absolutely no need to suffer (or let your relationship suffer) in silence”.4

The (United States) Mayo Clinic also encourage us to talk about sex, explaining:

“Your health has a big impact on your sex life and vice versa. Don’t be embarrassed about discussing sex with your doctor. Your doctor can be a reliable source of information on sexual health. He or she can help you manage chronic conditions and medications that affect your sex life. Your doctor can help you understand how sexual activity may change throughout your life”.5
