Libido through the roof!
« on: September 14, 2018, 05:42:16 PM »

Anyone else find that since hitting the menopause their libido/sex drive has gone through the roof instead of down the plughole?  I have and am experiencing the best sex ever!  Anyone know what causes this?

Everyone I know in perimenopause has lost their libido including me! You must be one of the lucky ones so enjoy it!! Not sure what causes it but in my pregnancies I also went off sex but had friends who were craving sex, so maybe it's just a hormonal thing and it works in different ways or different women?

Oh no, sorry you're experiencing that, I guess it's different for everyone.  I also know that antidepressants are supposed to stifle your sex drive but I've been on them for years and they haven't down anything to hurt mine.  Have you tried DHEA?  I hear that helps.

Enjoy it while it's there. You are still very young though so this helps. It's as you get further into Meno that things are more difficult sometimes as sexual response can also decline.

I found between the age of 48 and 53 I had the best time ever sexually. Some say it's the body making a last ditch attempt to further the species  :-\

Sometimes this is associated with new relationships rather than hormone status - I'm not sure your situation there.

I'm the opposite sadly, and not only in a long marriage, but also feeling zero to negative libido , lack of arousal, and like I'm "done".

Anyway, enjoy whatever you have, life is all too transitory in many ways.
