Loss of sex drive in the menopause

As part of our taboo-busting series on sex and the menopause, My Menopause Centre's co-founders Helen Normoyle and  Dr Clare Spencer (Registered Menopause Specialist and GP) are joined by Sue Makin (Counsellor and Sex Therapist) and Eleanor Gardner (Founder of Pelvic Relief) where they discuss loss of sex drive in the menopause.

Loss of sex drive in the menopause

Research shows that almost half of women going through the menopause experience loss of sex drive (also known as loss of libido – you can read more about this here).

In this video, our panellists discuss:

  • What causes loss of sex drive through menopause
  • How a drop in oestrogen levels affects the body and brain
  • Common symptoms of the menopause that can affect libido such as anxiety, weight gain, loss of confidence
  • How to increase sexual desire
  • How menopause affects pleasure and orgasm

This video is an extract from our webinar on sex and the menopause  – you can watch the full session here – and forms part of our mission to smash the taboos around the menopause and debunk the myth that menopause signals the end of a woman’s sex life.
