Expert Q & A Answers About menopause
Ever since I had a complete hysterectomy (including ovaries), I’ve had trouble with vaginal dryness and loss of sexual pleasure or sensation. What can I do about my vaginal dryness?
I am a 37-year-old female and my menstrual cycles are usually 28-29 days. But for the last three months, they’ve been about 30-31 days long. Most recently, my last cycle was only 23 days. I haven't had sexual intercourse lately, but I did take a couple of home pregnancy tests just to be sure, and they were all negative. What can be causing my menstrual cycles to be longer and then really short?
My wife is going through menopause...what’s happening in her body to cause menopause, and what will it mean for our sex life?
I’m in my 40s and I’ve had a weight problem almost all my life. When I was growing up, my father made negative comments about my body and called me a whore. Now, my partner makes negative comments, too…and since my total hysterectomy, I can’t seem to have an orgasm any more. What do I need to do to have an orgasm?
I am a 44-year-old male, and my wife and I have enjoyed a very good and regular sex life for about 14 years. However, I’ve had intermittent erectile dysfunction for the past four months...and I think it’s because my 50-year-old wife is going through menopause. It seems like sex is a chore for her and this puts me off. Then I get anxiety and I can’t keep an erection. What should I do? I don’t want to stop having sex with my wife as we get older.
