Mary Jo Rapini, Intimacy/Sex Relationship Psychotherapist says-
The weather outside might be frightful, but it’s nothing compared to the inclement storm of menopausal symptoms that even the most resilient women face. I would love to reveal that we found a cure for women's low libido, to give some understanding as to why one day we can make passionate love and the next, we simply have no sex drive.
I believe that the best solution to a lack of sexual desire involves a number of non-drug approaches such as therapy, mind-body techniques, and potentially, the involvement or help of your partner. When struggling with low libido and dryness causes painful sex, it’s no wonder that women opt out of sex altogether. Luckily, there are new devices for sexual wellness and tried and true moisturizers and lubes that can help you enjoy every intimate moment of the holiday season.
