Dealing with Loss of Libido | Nuffield Health

Dr. Annie talks about keeping your s*x drive after menopause.

Losing your desire for s*x is an uncomfortable subject to talk about but asking for help is the first step to reclaiming your s*xuality.

Many women who are concerned about a loss of libido feel that it’s a very private and almost shameful thing that they’re finding it difficult to enjoy s*x in the way that they want to.

There are many possible reasons why your s*x drive isn't what it used to be, including your physical or mental health and that of your partner. It's worth discussing these issues first, but for many women loss of libido is directly linked to the menopause. Find out more about the other things that can get in the way of your love life.

A huge hormonal change takes place during menopause causing oestrogen production to decline. A key symptom is vaginal dryness which can make s*x painful, which of course affects a woman’s ability to enjoy s*xual activity. Other hormone levels drop off, causing a fundamental change in a woman’s brain – sometimes reducing or shutting down their s*xual desire altogether.

You're not on your own.

Women worry that they're on their own with these issues and that their partners won’t understand. It may feel uncomfortable asking for help, but there are things that can be done. Even in the post-menopause, women can still feel like women, they can still enjoy their femininity and enjoy intimacy.

Often a simple blood test, known as an endocrine investigation, can identify the hormone imbalance brought on by menopause which can then be used to tailor hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to suit your personal needs.

Don’t suffer in silence. A quick conversation with your GP or a women’s health specialist is the first step to taking back the intimacy you desire.

Embracing Menopause - V-Love

Dr. Trina Read is a s*xologist and relationship expert, best selling author and media expert from Canada.
In this blog article she shares my video about what happens to women during the menopausal years & says:
"Because every woman’s peri-menopause and menopausal experience is unique, a one-size-fits-all approach won’t work; and her ability to combat symptoms and thrive during ‘the change’ needs to be respected."

'I blame Hunt, not junior doctors': patients show support for all-out strike | Sarah Marsh

Given that I never achieved Consultant status, I AM a junior doctor, and if the NHS had seen fit to continue employing me, would have been "out there" with my friends & colleagues...as one patient says: "I’m anxious about the care my loved ones are likely to receive over the next few weeks, but in the longer term I also want them to be cared for by doctors who are well rested, and properly paid for their time (particularly when working anti-social hours). They are already undervalued and imposing this contract will mean even more doctors leave"

gu.com Patients speak out about why they still support the doctors’ action – while others accuse them of ‘playing God’

www.theguardian.com 02/04/2016

Female doctors may be forced to quit over new contract, experts say

So, the Dept of Health says that women should make “informal childcare arrangements” if they are affected by having to work more antisocial hours (7pm-10pm weekdays, and 7am-5pm Sat are now "normal working hours") under the new enforced contract- REALLY???!!!

I lost the man I loved through my paranoia, anxiety, panic attacks and lack of s*x life due to constant infections etc .. I was literally on my knees begging for help ... Well I am due to see you early February and since you prescribed combined hrt 4 months on I am a completely different woman .. Confident , happy , calm feeling s*xy again and no more infections . Thank you so so much for saving me . You really have X

Headaches in Women With Migraine Rise in Perimenopause

At last an article confirming what all women with migraine know- that it worsens during the perimenopause & is linked to the menstrual cycle... Shame it suggests that HRT is only a possible way of helping "and not without risk"- HRT via the skin stabilises the fluctuations & helps get rid of migraine-and by the skin it does not increase blood clot/ stroke risk..(not by mouth as this adds to variability of oestrogen level)..if you want to read it then you can just join Medscape...easy!!

What science doesn’t know about the menopause: what it’s for and how to treat it | Rose George

This is actually a fantastic article, as so many women will recognise themselves when the read it...it stumbles, in my view, in the very last paragraph when the author concludes that "But I’m still not sure if I will take HRT. I want to protect my bones and heart, but the residual fear of cancer is still too deep, however debunked. I’d like to end on a positive note, one of clarity and conviction. But instead I’m just confused. And if that is the case for me, after months of reading, research and talking to experts, what chance of understanding does anyone else have?". I honestly feel that, put simply, we now have a choice of allowing our hormonal state to alter so that we enter a phase of being without oestrogen, with the long term consequences that entails to bone, heart, brain, collagen & general quality of life, or replacing "like for like" with natural plant derived hormones (all available on NHS prescription) tailored to our needs, and remaining in our pre-menopausal hormonal environment with the benefits & risks that entails. Most of the women who come to see me feel that their quality of life has been so severely affected that the decision for them is actually already made!! My job is to explain, tailor and tweak!

Hormone replacement therapy and breast disease - Marsden - 2011 - The Obstetrician &...

Cancer Research UK published a post entitled "Read our reaction to yesterday's completely misleading headlines about HRT being harmless"...
I thought you might like to read my (informed!) response...and maybe help balance the reaction- you might even want to visit their page?....

Please read this article by Jo Marsden, one of Europe's leading specialists on breast cancer and hormones: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1576/toag.12.3.155.27597/full
It is a TRULY informed opinion. Sadly it is impossible to ever say exactly what "caused" an individual woman's breast cancer, or indeed bowel cancer, or any other cancer as all have multiple predisposing factors. Table 5 is especially important, as it explains the elevated risks that we can actually attribute to different factors. Having a BMI >35 doubles breast cancer risk, or put another way, increases it by 100%. So does drinking more than 2 units of alcohol per day...(again double the risk, or a 100% increase). Clearly some combinations of hormones in HRT can elevate risk of developing breast cancer earlier than might otherwise happen, in some women. Estrogen alone seems either not to elevate base line risk at all, or elevate it by about 23%, estrogen with progesterone/progestogens for women with a womb, lowers their lifetime risk of developing endometrial (womb lining) cancer, but can again perhaps increase risk of developing breast cancer at any specific age by about 26% .. Any elevated risk returns back to baseline after 5 years of stopping, and there appears to be NO increased risk of dying from breast cancer despite HRT.
The working theory is now that for the 1 in 9 women (UK stats) sadly destined to develop breast cancer, using some combinations of hormones may advance the onset of diagnosis of that breast cancer, but will in no way make a difference to the survival (which is now 80% at 5 years). This is no way to minimise the impact of the diagnosis and living with breast cancer, but we need to be accurate about risk and what we can attribute it to.. women who go on having periods into their mid fifties have a "naturally" higher risk than those who go through menopause earlier. Those who drink more than 2 units per day, on average, are increasing their risk (how often do we hear about this in the press, compared with the amount of press given to the adverse effects of HRT?). And yes, use of HRT with estrogen and progesterone reduces life time risk of bowel cancer by about 33%. It also reduces risk of fracture of neck of femur by about 25%, saving lives of elderly women who often do not survive this. We all have to make choices, we owe it to ourselves to insure these are well informed, please!
