Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about prevention and wellness for women.

How does menopause affect a woman’s ability to be intimate with her partner?

During menopause, women experience a mix of both physical and emotional changes.

For some women, physical changes from menopause including vaginal dryness and hot flashes can make intimacy seem less exciting, according to Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians.

For other women, emotional changes such as mood swings and decreased libido can interfere with intimacy.

Whatever the reason, it’s important for women to find a way to work through the challenges menopause can cause, should they want to.

For more information about how menopause can affect a woman’s ability to be intimate, talk with your doctor.
