What are steps a woman can take to address menopause and intimacy issues?

If you’re facing intimacy issues related to menopause, there are steps you can take to improve the problem.

Treatment needs are different for every woman, but major improvements can be made with minor changes, according to Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians. Some of those changes include:

  • Adding new medications
  • Changing ongoing medications
  • Changing your schedule
  • Decreasing stress
  • Using moisturizers

Being honest with your partner, compromising on how and when to be intimate, and experimenting with new positions and sensual activities are all also ways to help work through intimacy issues related to menopause, according to Harvard Medical SchoolOff Site Icon (HMS).

Talk to your doctor for more information about what steps you can take to address intimacy issues during menopause.
