How can I improve my sex drive during and after menopause?

ANSWER

Estrogen therapy can ease vaginal dryness so sex is less painful. Doctors are also studying whether a combo of estrogen and male hormones called androgens may help boost sex drive in women.

Ask your doctor about other treatment options, like counseling. A therapist who specializes in sexual problems can treat you individually, as a couple, or in a group. This type of counseling can work very well, even after short therapy.
