Get Support | Low Sex Drive

Not in the mood? Hormonal changes can cause a low libido and is a common experience among women experiencing menopause. While changes to relationship dynamics can also contribute to a lessened sex drive or desire, physical and emotional symptoms stemming from menopause — including mood swings, irritability, stress, anxiety, vaginal dryness, joint pain and weight gain — can also further exacerbate issues and present new challenges.
