Perimenopause Symptoms | Natural Solutions for a Lowered Libido

When perimenopause symptoms begin, you many notice your sex drive isn’t what it used to be. A lowered libido during perimenopause is not inevitable though. Shifting hormones can cause a decrease in sexual drive and responsiveness, but there are natural ways that you can maintain your sexual vitality.


When women begin to have perimenopause symptoms, it is because the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone have begun to decline. Testosterone levels begin to drop too.


Estrogen maintains blood flow to the vaginal area and is responsible for vaginal lubrication as well. Testosterone is the key hormone that influences sex drive. When these hormone levels taper off, sexual responsiveness may as well.


Dr. Marina Rose, DC has helped women with perimenopause symptoms and people with other challenging, chronic health conditions in and around the city of Mountain View, CA.


Using bio-identical hormones can help but for many women it is not enough. If you have had long term stress which caused poor adrenal function you may see improved libido by starting an adrenal health program. You can improve your adrenal function by reducing stress, getting enough rest and taking the appropriate nutritional supplements based on your unique circumstances. Maintaining a strong pelvic floor can be beneficial too.


It is also important to recognize that changes in your sexuality around the time of menopause are natural. Embracing the changes in your body is an important part of coping with menopause, as Dr. Christiane Northrup agrees.
