Meno Martha and Sexual Wellbeing

  • “I’ve always enjoyed sex and I’m worried that my vagina will change after menopause. What changes should I expect?
  • I’ve had vaginal dryness and pain with intercourse since menopause. We use lubricants and I’ve even tried vaginal moisturizers, but sex is still uncomfortable. Yet I’m nervous about using estrogen. Should I be?
  • I’ve been experiencing bothersome hot flashes for the past year, and I wake up almost every night sweaty and then get cold. My sex life was fine until menopause, but I’m just not interested any more. Could the hot flashes be affecting my libido?”.
  • What’s the key ingredient for a great sex life?”
