Key takeaways from the episode are:
- Decreasing hormone levels are a big reason for decreased libido, sexual desire and arousal during perimenopause and menopause, but other causes include our lifestyle, moods and STRESS.
- Despite how often women are bothered by sexual problems in perimenopause and menopause, most women don’t discuss it with their healthcare providers. We need to talk about it in order to decrease the stigma around it and find ways to help women.
- Your brain is a powerful sexual organ; just thinking about sex can help with arousal and desire.
