Low sex drive affects most women at some point in their lives, often during the menopause. This is due to common symptoms that makes sex uncomfortable such as, vaginal dryness, while reduced libido itself is also a symptom. But often the menopause comes at a time in life where sex feels like a ‘chore’, with that initial spark missing.

Whatever the reason, it’s important to find the right treatment to maintain a healthy sex life, it may be a case of setting time aside for date nights to rekindle that fire.

What can both do?

Once you’ve recognised the cause, there’s plenty of treatments to help.

For instance, women suffering from vaginal dryness can try a free sample of Sylk’s Natural Intimate Moisturizer, which is made from a plant-based, female-friendly formula which gently soothes vaginal dryness and provides lubrication “just like your own”. Or perhaps you and your partner could try sexual counselling, experiment in the bedroom and spend time with each other.
