Women: Worst Sex Life at This Age

As if hot flashes, mood swings and night sweats weren't punishment enough, there is one other brutal and not-often-discussed potential side effect of menopause: A woman's sex life--and that of her partner, too--goes to pot.

According to a survey of 1,000 women 35 and older, all of whom were just beginning, just ending, or in the middle of menopause, nearly half reported not only experiencing a decreased sex drive, but also having sex less than once a month. Not surprisingly, most thought this was hurting their relationship. The "Sex and Menopause Survey" was sponsored by Duramed Pharmaceuticals and conducted by Harris Interactive for the Red Hot Mamas organization, a leading menopause education organization.

"Menopausal women are having less sex, and it's impacting our relationships," Karen Giblin, president of Red Hot Mamas, told Reuters Health in an interview. "Frankly, through the Red Hot Mamas menopause education programs, I have heard that a lot of women would rather go shoe shopping than have sex, and that concerns me." Of those surveyed, 44 percent reported suffering from one or more vaginal symptoms that can cause dryness and painful sex. "We are the baby-boom generation who is now entering menopause; we are the women who lived through the sexual revolution in the '60s, and now we are having our own sexual revolution of a different kind," Giblin told Reuters.

Men also need to learn about menopause since it can be so hard on relationships. "If a partner sees a decrease in sex with their partner, often times the partner becomes resentful and feels that the woman has lost interest, and it isn't necessarily true," Giblin said. "It's very critical for women and their significant other to stay really connected during menopause."
