Top Women’s Age-Related Sexual Health Symptoms We Treat
What Happened to My Sex Life?
Many women ask this common question at some point in their lives. A decline in the desire for sex usually occurs around the stages of menopause. However, sexual dysfunction can occur at any time in a woman’s life – and there are usually a few main culprits.
As you age, estrogen levels naturally decline causing a host of unpleasant symptoms such as reduced libido and arousal, inability to orgasm, decreased lubrication, fatigue, mood changes, and vaginal atrophy.
Vaginal Atrophy (atrophic vaginitis)
A condition where the vaginal walls become thin, dry and inflamed due to a decline in estrogen levels. It can cause itching, burning, and pain during sex, as well as urinary incontinence, UTIs and spotting or bleeding.
Incontinence is a loss of bladder control caused by weak muscles in the pelvic floor or bladder. It can feel like an intense urge to urinate or can cause urine to leak during activities. Incontinent women are more likely to have decreased sexual desire, satisfaction and comfort and is often brought on by physical changes in the body such as menopause.

Take Back Your Sex Life
The most common cause is hormonal changes related to menopause. This natural phase of life can cause a drop in estrogen levels, which leads to thinning and drying of the walls of the vagina. Other possible causes of vaginal atrophy may include certain medications, douching, stress, and allergies to latex condoms, detergents or fabric softeners. Additionally, breastfeeding, childbirth, chemotherapy or breast cancer treatment, and pelvic radiotherapy can also lead to atrophy.
For many women, the loss of libido and sex drive can be an emotionally difficult thing to go through. But understanding what causes a lack of libido is key to being able to restore it. Here are some of the potential causes of low libido in women:
- Hormonal changes: During the menstrual cycle, women experience a variety of hormonal shifts that can affect sexual desire. Low levels of hormones like estrogen and testosterone can lead to a decrease in libido.
- Stress: Women often experience higher stress levels than men due to their additional daily responsibilities and activities. This can lead to fatigue and an overall lack of energy, which can negatively affect libido.
- Medication: Certain medications taken for a variety of conditions such as depression, high blood pressure, and birth control can all be potential culprits behind decreased libido in women.
Urinary incontinence is often caused by a weak bladder or pelvic floor muscles, damage during childbirth, increased pressure on your stomach, certain medications, damage to the bladder or surrounding area from surgery. There are four types of urinary incontinence: urgency, stress, functional and overflow. Causes of urge incontinence may also include drinking too much caffeine or alcohol, not drinking enough water, constipation and UTIs. Overflow incontinence can be caused by bladder stones, enlarged prostate gland or constipation.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) augments natural hormone production restoring it to normal levels. Read more here.
Some natural “at-home” remedies that offer vaginal dryness relief or vaginal atrophy treatment include coconut, almond or oil oils, oatmeal baths, a diet rich in omega 3s, vitamin E and avoiding allergens and irritants. And while natural remedies can help temporarily alleviate some symptoms, its best to consult with a doctor to have comprehensive lab testing and diagnostics done to understand the source of your vaginal dryness.
Yes. During menopause, the body produces less estrogen, which can cause the inner lining of the vagina to become dry, thin and less flexible resulting in vaginal atrophy, painful intercourse and lack of interest in sex.
One of the best vaginal dryness treatment approaches is a program that takes a 360-degree integrative and functional medicine approach to uncovering the root cause of your vaginal dryness.
Forum Health providers often recommend bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) as a treatment for low libido. This therapy also offers help for vaginal dryness as it addresses the underlying cause for low libido, which is a loss of estrogen as a woman ages and enters perimenopause and menopause.
