Menopause, Aging, Other Factors

Is there an association between sexual health, menopause, aging and other factors?

In Sex & Relationships: Sex & Menopause the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health (JH) explain:

Sexual Health and Menopause Snapshot

“At midlife and menopause, many things are likely to be happening, both to your body and in your relationships. There might be partners, children and ageing or unwell parents to consider, as well as work demands and even your sense of identity as a woman. These changes can affect your sexuality and, together with the hormonal changes, sexual problems may occur”.

Other Factors

What is it helpful to sort out with sexual problems?

In Sex & Relationships: Relationships – What Can You Do To Help Your Relationship? the JH also note:

“If sexual problems are causing difficulties in your relationship, it is helpful to sort out how many of them are due to the physical symptoms of menopause, and how many might relate to other issues, or both. When you have worked this out, then you can seek the appropriate help”.
