On the topic of intimacy after 50, it is not unusual for couples to have a disparity in libido once midlife hits and menopause is in full swing. Is a low libido putting your relationship at risk? Are you afraid to talk about it? Today, we’re inviting that conversation. Menopause is a confusing and turbulent time for all involved, and many couples assume that something is wrong with their relationship if they have lost desire. While ‘something’ may be wrong, depleted hormone levels do not need to be the reason your relationship is at risk. The simple truth, most of us don’t understand what is happening with our bodies during menopause and are hesitant to discuss “what’s going on” – most often for fear of hurting our partner’s feelings. The good news, there are lots of ways to deal with loss of libido and rediscover intimacy after 50.
