Pleasurable Sex During Menopause
Going through menopause causes many changes. Menopause can bring about mood swings, hot flashes, depression, vaginal dryness and more. Menopausal and postmenopausal women may find they are not as easily aroused due to these uncomfortable changes. Fortunately, there are many ways to ease the symptoms of menopause, and even enjoy sex more than before.

Vaginal dryness is a common symptom of menopause that can cause an aversion to sexual activity. To quell vaginal dryness, try a simple water-based lubricant. Many women find Replens works well to restore vaginal moisture. A Replens insert lasts up to 3 days to supply you with continuous vaginal moisture.
If you find that menopause has dampened your ability to become aroused, you can try reading or watching erotica, or using a new vibrator. If you find you have decreased sensitivity to touch, try the strong Hitachi Magic Wand. If you are postmenopausal and your vagina feels oversensitive, try the ultra-thin Oasis Wand. This vibrator was specially designed to massage the vaginal walls and keep them healthy after menopause.
If none of these remedies seem to work, contact your doctor. Your physician can assess whether or not your diminished libido is related to menopause, and decide if a medication might be right for you. Testosterone is commonly prescribed to postmenopausal women to revive the sex drive.
