Menopause is not the reason for the low desire

Among warm flashes, night sweatings, and general uneasiness, it's no wonder women globally dread menopause. But don't be so quick to blame the hormonal change for a lower desire. Women often say that they cannot perform sex as they had their menopause but it is not true. Maybe now she is not interested in you, is the major issue.

According to a new report, women's sexual functioning is pretty stable before and after menopause. This study is the first of its kind, analysed how different variables of sexuality (passion, arousal, pleasure, and discomfort) communicate with each other and change over the period of time.

Researchers studied four years and concluded that the rate of sexual dysfunction is stable at 22--23% for both pre- and post-menopausal women and that menopause is not a significant contributor to sexual issues as once believed. But it wasn't the outcome they expected.

"We were amazed by the results a little bit, " the researcher said. "They suggest that menopause has been fabricated as an explanation for everything," he added.
