Why Women’s Sexual Desire Decreases with Age


Sexual desire has three interconnected components:

  1. Drive
  2. Expectations
  3. Motivation

Both men and women experience a decreased sex drive, as they age, but women are two to three times more likely to experience a waning sex drive.

Most women’s diminished sexual desire, or low libido, is greatly affected by their plummeting estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels. As a result, women tend to experience:

  1. Vaginal dryness
  2. Pain during intercourse
  3. Clitoral atrophy
  4. Emotional distress over low sex drive


How to Boost Sexual Desire

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can boost sexual interest by restoring your libido. BHRT consists of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone and not only improves sexual desire but can also:

  • Improve sleep patterns
  • Increase energy levels
  • Reduce stress

In a recent study of sexual desire, 52 percent of women who had gone through menopause were more likely to have low desire, while only 27 percent of premenopausal women reported low libido.  Both premenopausal and postmenopausal women alike can discuss sensitive issues at New Day Vitality.
