Menopause and Low Sex Drive – A Sexless Marriage
Menopause may provide great comic fodder for popular sitcoms, but if you find yourself going through “the change,” perhaps you're not laughing. Though it's a natural part of life for aging women, menopause creates some unpleasant symptoms, including diminished sex drive, mood swings, hot flashes and even diminished metabolism. Have you already experienced the dry scourge of lost libido? Well, you're not alone. In fact, almost 40 percent of women experience some decline in sexual desire during this stage of their lives. Fortunately, there are solutions available to turn those dying embers into renewed flames of passion.
What Happened to My Sex Drive?
Vaginal dryness, intercourse pain, and even the complete loss of arousal are common symptoms among women experiencing menopause. Menopause can seem like a cruel twist of fate. You're finally free to have sex without the fear of unwanted pregnancy, and you can't even enjoy your love life! Don’t blame your reproductive system; blame your hormones. 
When menopause occurs, your estrogen and progesterone levels decline significantly. Estrogen is that magic ingredient that makes sex such a euphoric experience for a woman; it heightens the physical sensations associated with sexual contact and provides sufficient vaginal lubrication. In addition to lost libido and vaginal dryness, loss of estrogen contributes to hot flashes, night sweats and irregular periods.
How Do I Get My Groove Back?
While it's helpful to understand the “Why?” factor, the bigger question is the “Now what?” If you've gone from 50 Shades of Grey to 50 Colorful Quilting Patterns, it's time to revive your sex life—and quick. Nutrients rich in zinc, magnesium and soy proteins can offset the symptoms of menopause while actuating that desire for sex. 
Servings of tofu, miso soup, soymilk, almonds, oysters, kidney beans, buckwheat, lean meats and fish contain the necessary zinc, magnesium and soy proteins. You don't have to incorporate every one of these foods into your weekly meal plan. The goal is to enrich your body with nutrients that promote optimal hormone balance. 
What if Diet Isn't Enough?
Hormones are vital. According to research, DHEA, another important hormone, diminishes during menopause and carries a strong association with the female sex drive. If you're struggling to turn up the heat in the bedroom due to menopause, reawaken your libido with a DHEA supplement found in Young Again—Revive Passion for Menopausal Women.
