Age and Your Sex Drive

March 26th, 2010

From the moment we are born into this world, a woman’s body goes through a lot of physical changes. Understanding our bodies and the changes that happen as we age can go a long way in living a longer and healthier life. A lot of these changes affect how we go about our daily lives and personal relationships. One of the common changes reported with advancing age is a diminished sexual libido.

Sex is important in any type of relationship and this is a fact that does not decrease with age. However, as we age, reduced sexual activity can affect the quality of our relationships. A lot of couples find great of fulfillment when they are able to meet their partner’s sexual needs. Helping them through this stage of their relationship could build stronger ties and understanding with each other.

Factors that contribute to decreased sexual desire in older women have a lot to do with the physical changes in the body. Older women don’t have to suffer decreased sexual pleasure or diminished sexual activity. Although age certainly brings about many sexual changes in our bodies, advances in medical resources can help treat or manage these sexual changes.

Sexual changes and problems commonly reported with advancing age include decreased libido, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse.

Sex demands a lot from our bodies, and some of the change that occurs with old age involves decreased physical strength. The loss of muscle mass and strength is normal in older women. Keeping a healthy body through regular exercise and a healthy diet is more than enough to meet the required physical demands of sex.

Age also increases the risk of acquiring medical conditions which affect the quality of sexual activity and libido. Heart disease is a common medical condition among seniors and people with a weak heart at any age are not able to perform sex as passionately. This is why maintaining a healthy body in later life is important for a healthy sex drive.

Older people may also feel depressed about their appearance. Feeling good about yourself and keeping a positive outlook in life improves self esteem and self appreciation. When people feel good about themselves this is reflected in all areas of life, including their sex life.

Hormones play an important role in determining normal human growth and body processes. In fact, the changes that happen during old age are due to changing levels of hormones in the body. Male and female characteristics and sexual desire are also affected by hormones.

Menopause is often viewed by women as being negative. This is because it signals a loss of sexual desire and libido. But these concerns are unfounded as older people can enjoy the pleasure of being intimate well into their golden years.

      Hersolution is the best in our opinion. It is formulated to not only increase sexual pleasure but also enhance sexual desire. And you should start taking it now so you are ready for the action at all times

    I am nearly 76 and I have been on my own with no relationship(s) for about 20 years. I recently met a guy and we have developed a friendship which I now feel he wants to take further. I have no libido and beginning a sexual relationship scares me to death. What product might help? Any suggestions very welcome. I am sure I cannot be alone in this situation!!

    • admin says:

      You can try hersolution pills along with the gel. Together they would address the problem of libido and also make intercourse a pleasurable experience for both partners.

      There is a good chance this would work considering your age. You can try it for sometime and if it fails you can explore other options.

    Hi my names Raelynn, I’m 17 and my girlfriend is 18. My sex drive is A LOT higher than hers. We were wondering if these pills would work well for her and how long should she take them to get her sex drive up and running?

    • admin says:

      At 18 you shouldn’t be needing pills but if she wishes she could try them for a month and see if they make a difference.

  10. Alexis says:

    is 16 years old too young to take the libido pills?

    • admin says:

      Yes, unless you have a specific problem that needs to be addressed. Check with your doctor and see what might be wrong.

  11. Terise says:

    I am 48 years old and have never had what you would call an active libido. I have never orgasmed with my husband, although I have gotten close.

    We spent over 7 years trying to conceive and it never happened for us even with in vitro, but now we have two beautiful girls who are seven. We adopted them when they were 2 days old. They are great, but keep my very busy. I work an 8 hour day and then come home to dinner, homework, and the girls.

    I have NO interest in sex at all these days. Even before it was almost always my husband initiating. Now I often look for way to actively avoid sex. Just the idea makes me feel sad and tired. I want to enjoy our relationship and want him to be happy, but it is just so difficult to manufacture any enthusiasm…

    • admin says:

      Daily life chores, kids, work, stress together can definitely kill sex drive. You need to relax, take it easy and try and spend some quality time with your husband alone – on weekends at least if not other days. Try these supplements which will also help you de-stress and create conditions for reviving your libido.

  12. jason says:

    my girlfriend christina and I have been together for 3 yrs. long story short. our sex life is non existant. for the first 2 yrs it was phenominal, now she says shes just never in the mood. (like never) shes 24 im 36 and i feel it should be the other way around. any suggestions?

    • admin says:

      At her age, she should have a very healthy libido. Let her try these supplements for a couple of months and see. They should be able to get her libido where you want it to be.

  13. Chelsea says:

    I am 27 years old. I have been with my fiance for almost 5 years. We keep having the same fight. He wants sex all the time. I try to give in at least once a week but he told me recently that isnt enough. In 2009 or 2010 I got the m*rena implant. I gained 50 pounds that year. I wont lie I smoke which I am trying to quit. I have tried getting healthy with food and excerise ( i even had a trainer for a year) but nothing, no weight came off. I tried explaining to him that life gets to me. I have all these list of things I have to get done but he says its an excuse. I have been tested for many things with hormones and what not, the doctors say that sometimes my numbers are low but not low enough to cause concern. I just dont think about sex. I have tried a supplement called steel lidio, didnt work. I dont know if its my implant or me…..i dont know what to do.

    • admin says:

      Have you considered trying another method of birth control? If the implant is causing you to lose your sex drive then it might be worth trying another method. Trying to lose weight and quit smoking would also help but you should try and eliminate the cause. You could then try these supplements which would help bring your drive back.

    • admin says:

      Since you are still young and there is no medical issue hampering your sex drive, these supplements have a very good chance of working for you. The pills can help you get your sex drive up and the gel would definitely make you enjoy sex much more than you currently do.

  16. Brenda says:

    I need something for sex drive and reaching climax as I have had a complete, total hysterectomy. Some of these pills talk about fertility, menstrating, etc. and I’m way past that. I don’t have hot flashes, etc. I do not know what the best product for me is.
    Thank you. Would like to hear ASAP.

    • admin says:

      Hersolution has been seen to be most effective for post menopausal women and also those who have lost their sex drive after hysterectomy. But getting your desire back in such cases takes time and you must try the pills along with the gel for 3-4 months to see any real change. Of course, for some women it is a lot quicker than that.

  17. kathy yeager says:

    I am 59 years old and engaged to a wonderful man of 65 and have always had a strong sex drive but since going through menopause it appears to be gone! We have found a position that is comfortable but I want to be the sex kitten I used to be.
    Any ideas!!!!!
    PS we are both in good heath and active.

    • admin says:

      It is usual for women to experience loss of sex drive through menopause. Sometimes it returns on its own with time. Supplements are very effective in cases like yours as you are in good health and do not have any other issues. I am confident that these pills/gel will help you get your drive back.

  18. JEan says:

    Have a soothing bath for two or let your man massage all of you in the order you prefer. Take the time to get close to one another and no interruptions.
