Know more about how hormone replacement therapy in Miami can help keep your sexual intimacy with your partner

Hormone Replacement Therapy Miami FLMenopause is a transformative time in a women’s life, and it can be pretty amazing. However, some symptoms of menopause, such as loss of libido and desire for sex, can hamper your relationship.

Find out how hormone replacement therapy available in Miami can help you maintain your sex drive.

What happens when you go through menopause?

As you go through menopause, you might notice several changes happening to you. Fluctuating hormone levels usually cause these symptoms in women as they age. Most women experience night sweats, hot flashes, anxiety, and fatigue. These changes may impact a woman’s life negatively.  

On top of that, your libido, or sex drive, is changing. Some women may experience an increase in libido, while others experience a decrease. Not all women go through this libido decrease, though it is prevalent. In most cases, a lower libido during menopause is due to decreased hormone levels. 

A woman’s libido can be affected by declining estrogen levels as she approaches menopause.

So how can I maintain my sex drive during menopause?

Both arousal and orgasm are dependent on a complex set of psychological and physical factors. Libido issues can also affect arousal and orgasm. In addition, when blood flow to the genitals and pelvis is diminished, or nerves are damaged, it can be difficult to achieve either. By identifying and addressing factors, you can improve your sexual response.

Here is a list of the most common physical factors interfering with sexual arousal and orgasm, so do your best to avoid them!

  • Alcohol – Yes, a drink or two of alcohol may boost arousal, but it’s not a sure thing. Sometimes, your body may not be “at it” even if you’re interested in sex. Also, too much booze actually harms your libido. The more you drink, the worse your genital response and physical arousal are.  
  • Health conditions – Some medical conditions can affect your blood flow, which leads to a decrease in your libido. Conditions such as vitamin D deficiency, depression,  arthritis, and neurological diseases may cause low sex drive.
  • Stress – Stress, depression, and anxiety increase cortisol levels, suppressing your estrogen and testosterone levels. This usually results in decreased libido.
  • Medication – Certain prescription drugs, such as antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, lower the sex drive.

Consider hormone replacement therapy today to regain their intimacy and sexual life.

If sustaining intimacy is becoming more complicated, many approaches can help. Here are some ways to make sex after menopause more comfortable:

  • LubesUsing lubricants is a fast and easy way to get your wetness back, so you can feel more comfortable during sex. It relieves vaginal dryness that can lead to friction during intercourse. And we know that kind of friction is not the good kind we want in bed.
  • Vibrators and clitoral stimulation devicesRegular stimulation can pump up blood flow and lubrication to the inside and outside of your vagina. We recommend using a vibrator several times a week with an appropriate lubricant. 
  • Try yoga and meditationWhy not try yoga and meditation to relieve yourself from stress and anxiety? Lowering your stress levels will help your libido and orgasms. Mindful activities such as these can help you become more aware of the subtle changes in your body. Just imagine sensual touches on the right places.  
  • Try new thingsIf intercourse is painful, the two of you might try new positions and techniques that may be more comfortable. It may help to remember that vaginal intercourse isn’t the only option. Genital stimulation and oral sex may provide as much satisfaction as you need.
  • Hormone replacement therapyHormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help balance your hormones. There are different forms of hormone replacement therapy that you can apply to help improve the tissue in and around your vagina. This way, you can increase your sex drive and relieve yourself from vaginal dryness.

How can Hormone Replacement Therapy help with menopause and libido?

Hormone Replacement Therapy Miami FLAs hormone levels decline, they can have a massive effect on sexual interest and drive. Biologically, after menopause, women are no longer fertile and cannot get pregnant. Naturally, this can affect libido and create a loss of interest in sex.

Hormone replacement therapy massively boosts sexual interest in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Women who have lost interest in sex during and after menopause are often affected by an underlying biological condition, which is hormone imbalance.

Hormonal imbalances cannot be treated by cognitive therapy (which is usually used in sex therapy). Therefore, sex therapy cannot necessarily boost libido in such women. Thankfully, hormone replacement therapy can help with hormone imbalances.
