I am fortunate in that area... my libido is intact. Given I had Polycyctic Ovary Syndrome all my adult life, my testosterone levels were always high. *LOL*

Now on HRT... my hormones are more in sync but still my libido is easily charged.

With everything else being chaotic in my life during menopause, a libido is a welciomging nicety. *LOL*

Loss Libido
Sex researchers and therapists recognize loss of libido as the most common problem in a women's sex life. Not giving the right attention to loss of libido would decrease your quality of your sexual life in an undesirable way. So please take your time to read the information provided below which will help you learn and understand more about loss of libido.
What is Loss of Libido?
If libido could somehow be explained, it would be as an "instinctive natural sexual energy". In other words, the sexual desire someone has towards their partner. So, the best way to describe loss of libido would be as of a lost of sexual interest in a person.
What causes Loss of Libido?
The causes of women's loss of libido can be divided in psychological and physical. In fact, these causes can be unique for some woman and may be a combination of both for others.

Psychological causes for loss of Libido. These can be divided into stress, overwork, fatigue; and relationship conflicts. If the first ones are not controlled (daily work/life), you could presence loss of libido. In the other hand, relationship conflict defined as communication, trust and intimacy problems with your partner, can all adversely affect a woman's sexual response and interest. But usually, in both cases, loss of libido is temporary and stops when the stressful period or relationship conflict ends.

Physical causes for Loss of Libido. Hormonal imbalance, such as low testosterone, is the main cause for loss of libido. Women do produce small amounts of testosterone which plays an important role in their sexual lives. Without a balanced level of testosterone in their bodies, women are unable to properly respond to sexual stimuli leading to loss of libido. The main cause for loss of libido is hormonal imbalance, this is why it can be easily recognized as a common symptom of menopause.

As unbalanced hormonal levels are the most common cause for loss of libido, you should take a look at the following articles which explains properly what steps to take for controlling loss of libido.

Psychological: Loss of libido produced by relationship conflicts should be first fixed within the couple by counseling or therapy (involving marital or sexual therapy). On the other side, stress, overwork and fatigue should be treated by scheduling rest and joy time and integrating an exercise program in your life.

Physical: Since loss of libido is most probable caused by low hormonal levels, a hormone balancing program is the best solution. Although there are several ways to manage loss of libido, the best way is by combining therapies such as "lifestyle approaches" and alternative medicine.

Show hospitality to strangers for, by doing that, some have entertained angels unawares.
Never stop helping others because others think that they abuse you. That stranger can be Jesus and you lose the opportunity to serve, even in something simple.
