How to Increase Sex Drive after Menopause | MedSpa at ChristiMD

Ready for instant rewards you’ll love from ChristiMD? Sign up today! Menopause often puts a pause on a woman’s love life. The change can change her body, her hormones, and her libido.

If this sounds familiar to you, contact ChristiMD with your questions, and read on about how to increase sex drive after menopause.

How menopause and hormones affect sex drive

Menopause and its various stages—perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause—cause many different changes in hormone production. These changes can lower desire and make it harder for you to become aroused.

The stages of menopause can also make the vaginal canal less elastic and deprive it of lubrication. Both of these conditions can make intercourse painful. It’s unfortunate that more than a third of women in perimenopause/postmenopause have sexual difficulties.

MedSpa at ChristiMD knows how to increase sex drive after menopause, with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

BHRT in Houston

There’s a reason so many women come to MedSpa at ChristiMD for hormone imbalance issues.

Dr. Christi is a certified hormone specialist by the Hormone Therapy Center of America (HTCA). She has spent decades helping women regain their energy, their emotional stability affected by those hormones, and their sex drive.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

BHRT re-introduces hormones into your body which are chemically identical to your natural ones. 

For pellet therapy, Dr. Christi places a rice-sized, cylinder-shaped bioidentical hormone pellet under your skin. As the pellet very slowly dissolves, the bioidentical hormones correct the hormone imbalances. 

For your libido, BHRT reintroduces estrogen and testosterone, which can help restore sexual desire and the physical reactions to sexual arousal. More benefits include:

  • Decreased depression/anxiety
  • Increased energy
  • Improved sleep
  • Better mental clarity/focus
  • Decreased body fat
  • A healthy sense of well-being

Sometimes just feeling better after BHRT can reignite your libido

According to a study on menopause and female libido, “. . . natural menopause decreases levels of ovarian steroids, accompanied by diminished sexual desire in a significant portion of postmenopausal women.” 

Schedule a consultation to find out if BHRT can help you regain vitality in your love life.

Menopause can cause your pelvic floor muscles to weaken, becoming thinner and less flexible with the decline in estrogen levels. A weak pelvic floor can cause your vaginal canal to weaken and lose grip (laxity), plus cause continence issues which can further detract from a woman’s libido.

For non-surgical, non-invasive therapy, the EMSella treatment returns power to your pelvic floor.

What is EMSella?

The revolutionary EMSella chair uses high frequency electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to cause your pelvic floor muscles to contract. It’s most frequently compared to doing Kegels. 

The difference is that during a 30-minute EMSella session, you’ll do between 10,000 to 11,000 Kegels. 

How to Increase Sex Drive After Menopause with EMSella 

Your pelvic floor muscles control your urethra, your anus/rectum, and your vagina. When you use EMSella to rebuild those muscles, it can make your vagina will feel tighter because the muscles are stronger. This can improve sensation for both you and your partner. 

Plus, those same muscles contract during orgasm, so your climaxes can be easier to attain, and more satisfying.

EMSella treatment also encourages fibroblasts and collagen production, increasing the sensitivity of vaginal, labial and clitoral tissue. This improved stimulation heightens sexual sensation and contributes to a more powerful orgasm.
