Why perimenopause affects sexual life in some women

Sex And Menopause

Sexual dysfunction increases by nearly 30 per cent during perimenopause and vaginal dryness most often has the greatest effect on desire, arousal and overall satisfaction, reveals a new study.

For some women, sex becomes less satisfying with age, with a pronounced decline during perimenopause. Women start perimenopause at different ages.

There are many factors that can negatively affect sexual function, including mental and emotional status, ageing, chronic medical problems and menopause status.

Decreasing estrogen levels during the menopause transition cause a variety of biological changes in a woman’s body, leading to vaginal atrophy, the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls.

“This study examined sexual functioning in women aged 40 to 55 years and identified a link between vaginal dryness and worse sexual function.

“Given the high prevalence of sexual dysfunction in women, identifying an eminently treatable contributing factor such as vaginal dryness may allow women to maintain their sexual function during the menopause transition,” said Dr Stephanie Faubion, medical director with the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) in a paper published in the journal Menopause.

Although previous studies have documented the effect of vaginal atrophy on menopausal women, this new study is one of only a few to assess effect during perimenopause, a transitional time before menopause when the ovaries gradually begin to make less estrogen.

Largely as a result of vaginal dryness, researchers noted that sexual satisfaction scores decreased while sexual dysfunction increased by about 30 per cent during the perimenopause years.

Emma Mackey

Los Angeles, May 22 : “Sex Education” star Emma Mackey will head the cast of biographical drama about English novelist and poet Emily Bronte.

The film “Emily”, incidentally , will also mark the directorial debut of actress Frances O’Connor and trace the early years of the “Wuthering Heights” author, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

“Emily Bronte’s work and words are full of passion, feeling, violence and fierce intelligence,” O’Connor said, adding: “In creating an imagined life for Emily, she will live again for our audience. Her story is about a young woman daring to form herself, to embrace her true nature, despite the consequences. … I am so excited to work with such a thrilling, talented, young cast; luminous, intelligent, and spirited.”

The cast also includes Joe Alwyn, Fionn Whitehead and Emily Beecham. Alwyn will play Bronte’s conflicted lover, Whitehead will portray Branwell Bronte (her inspiring but self-destructive brother), and Beecham will play Bronte’s sister and fellow author Charlotte Bronte.

“Wuthering Heights”, published in the mid-1800s, is about a doomed love affair between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff.

O’Connor will direct Emily based on her own screenplay. The production of the movie is expected to begin in 2021 in Britain’s Yorkshire region.

sex buddy during lockdown

London, May 16 : If you are single and live in The Netherlands, you can find a ‘sex buddy during the coronavirus lockdown as the Dutch government has issued new guidance to such people seeking intimacy.

According to the guidance issued by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), single people seeking intimacy during the pandemic should come to an arrangement with one other person.

The guidance said that sex with a regular partner is possible because they are very close and it is practically impossible to avoid each other physically.

“However, the two should avoid physical intimacy if one of them suspects that they are infected with the COVID-19 infection,” the advisory said.

It added that ‘sex with yourself or with others at a distance is possible’ and named ‘telling erotic stories’ or ‘masturbating together’ as possible solutions.

RIVM also said that it makes sense that as a single you also want to have physical contact.

“It is extra important that you minimise the risk of the coronavirus during intimacy and sex. Discuss how best to do this together. Please observe the rules surrounding the new coronavirus,” according to the advisory.
