Age and Your Sex Drive

March 26th, 2010

From the moment we are born into this world, a woman’s body goes through a lot of physical changes. Understanding our bodies and the changes that happen as we age can go a long way in living a longer and healthier life. A lot of these changes affect how we go about our daily lives and personal relationships. One of the common changes reported with advancing age is a diminished sexual libido.

Sex is important in any type of relationship and this is a fact that does not decrease with age. However, as we age, reduced sexual activity can affect the quality of our relationships. A lot of couples find great of fulfillment when they are able to meet their partner’s sexual needs. Helping them through this stage of their relationship could build stronger ties and understanding with each other.

Factors that contribute to decreased sexual desire in older women have a lot to do with the physical changes in the body. Older women don’t have to suffer decreased sexual pleasure or diminished sexual activity. Although age certainly brings about many sexual changes in our bodies, advances in medical resources can help treat or manage these sexual changes.

Sexual changes and problems commonly reported with advancing age include decreased libido, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse.

Sex demands a lot from our bodies, and some of the change that occurs with old age involves decreased physical strength. The loss of muscle mass and strength is normal in older women. Keeping a healthy body through regular exercise and a healthy diet is more than enough to meet the required physical demands of sex.

Age also increases the risk of acquiring medical conditions which affect the quality of sexual activity and libido. Heart disease is a common medical condition among seniors and people with a weak heart at any age are not able to perform sex as passionately. This is why maintaining a healthy body in later life is important for a healthy sex drive.

Older people may also feel depressed about their appearance. Feeling good about yourself and keeping a positive outlook in life improves self esteem and self appreciation. When people feel good about themselves this is reflected in all areas of life, including their sex life.

Hormones play an important role in determining normal human growth and body processes. In fact, the changes that happen during old age are due to changing levels of hormones in the body. Male and female characteristics and sexual desire are also affected by hormones.

Menopause is often viewed by women as being negative. This is because it signals a loss of sexual desire and libido. But these concerns are unfounded as older people can enjoy the pleasure of being intimate well into their golden years.

    I need something for sex drive and reaching climax as I have had a complete, total hysterectomy. Some of these pills talk about fertility, menstrating, etc. and I’m way past that. I don’t have hot flashes, etc. I do not know what the best product for me is.
    Thank you. Would like to hear ASAP.

      Hersolution has been seen to be most effective for post menopausal women and also those who have lost their sex drive after hysterectomy. But getting your desire back in such cases takes time and you must try the pills along with the gel for 3-4 months to see any real change. Of course, for some women it is a lot quicker than that.

      It is usual for women to experience loss of sex drive through menopause. Sometimes it returns on its own with time. Supplements are very effective in cases like yours as you are in good health and do not have any other issues. I am confident that these pills/gel will help you get your drive back.

    Have a soothing bath for two or let your man massage all of you in the order you prefer. Take the time to get close to one another and no interruptions.
