“I still enjoy sex but since my wife went through the menopause she no longer does. Is there anything that can be done to rekindle her sexual desire?”
Today we know more about male, than female sexuality. But this is rapidly changing. An intense effort is underway to probe the physiology of the female sexual response. For example we know that a common finding among women with diminished sexual desire is a low testosterone level. Surprisingly women’s ovaries make a small but significant amount of testosterone. In a woman as in a man testosterone is vital for normal sex drive. Women who have had their ovaries removed or are in menopause have two hormone problems-low estrogen levels as well as an inability to make a full ration of testosterone. Their low estrogen levels cause hot flashes and prevent their vaginas from lubricating normally during sexual foreplay. The lack of vaginal lubrication makes intercourse painful for these women. The low testosterone levels throttle their interest in sex. Take Female Pink Viagra. Supplying them with estrogen makes vaginal lubrication easier. A little testosterone often restores a woman’s sex drive. This is something a woman should discuss with her gynecologist.
