Is Arousal After Menopause a Myth?

Women who are experiencing menopause believe they can no longer be intimate. They also believe that their age is stopping them from enjoying intimacy with their partner. Arousal after menopause is not a myth – you can still be aroused while experiencing menopause. 

Menopause literally shouldn’t put a “pause” on your sex life. Your intimacy should get better with age, just like fine wines. It’s important to talk to your partner and your physician about your feelings about sex after menopause. Some women may lose interest and overall confidence. 

Speak up and talk about how menopause affects your sexual activity. Here’s some information on how to always stay feeling sexy and keep your interest in sex, even after menopause.

Sexual Decline Causes

Not all symptoms of menopause will affect your sex drive, but most of the symptoms you experience will have an influence on your sexual activity. According to women’s health specialists, the physical effects that menopause has on your body can contribute to a lack of confidence, and a lack of sexual motivation. 

The physical effects include hot flashes, night sweats, loss of hormones, vaginal dryness, and vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy will cause your vaginal tissues to thin and will lead to a decrease in your estrogen levels. 

These changes will also affect women mentally. After experiencing changes from menopause it can cloud your confidence. Also, having less sex may cause distress in your life and lack of intimacy may weaken your relationship. Take charge of the changes going on in your body and adjust your view.

Arousal Tips

Sexual desire is a natural trait women have; feeling aroused isn’t just something for the young. After your childbearing years, your sex drive tends to drop, and going through menopause makes it even more difficult. Don’t worry, there are ways to get the blood flow you need to keep your intimacy alive and well. 

We know these tips will help you stay more confident in the bedroom at any stage of your life. Here are some tips for arousal after menopause.

Use Your Words

Although it may not want to be a subject you want to talk about, it’s better to be open about your feelings. Speak to your partner or a healthcare provider and address your concerns. Therapy may help you relax or enlighten sexual desires between you and your partner. If you are not feeling aroused during sex, talk to your partner, and see how you can both make the experience more pleasurable. Being honest in this situation is the best.

If you are struggling with emotional conflicts with intimacy, consider whether anything in your life is keeping you from wanting to have sex. Stress with intimacy can negatively affect sexual intercourse. 

Active Lifestyle

As anyone ages, they need to stay active. Women may gain weight after childbirth or menopause and it can affect their body image. Women may become self-conscious or less confident if they start to gain weight. Leading a healthy lifestyle will help you maintain healthy body weight or help you lose weight and may even relieve stress. 

Don’t be Afraid of Enlisting Help

After childbirth and menopause, a woman may experience vaginal dryness, which will cause discomfort or pain during sex. Vaginal moisturizers or lubricants can help relieve pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse. You want to find an oil that is safe for both partners, and practice using the right amount that works for both partners. 


When you don’t regularly work out or exercise, your muscles can lose proper function. Just like your muscles, your sexual organs lose capacity if you don’t use them as often. Practice having a healthy sex life and make your body more comfortable with trying again and again. Practice makes perfect.

Consider Revitalization

Passion or intimacy may be lacking because of your confidence “down there.” With our new technology, vaginal laser rejuvenation can help in a natural way.
