Could your menopause symptoms be helped with some time "between the sheets?" The Doctors welcome OB/GYN Dr. Thais Aliabadi, who says that vaginal sexual activity after menopause is "very important." She says it helps with:
- Stimulating blood flow to the vagina
- Keeping vaginal muscles toned
- To maintain elasticity and the length of the vagina
Dr. Aliabadi shares some suggestions on how to improve sex after going through menopause, which include:
- Being active, which can boost energy and help with mood, which may lead to having more sex
- Not to smoke, as this can reduce blood flow to the vagina
- Engage in pelvic floor exercises to increase blood flow
- Testosterone creams or sublingual drops can help some with low libidos
She also says those with vaginal dryness and painful intercourse can find relief from an estrogen cream and also a Co2 laser can help with vaginal atrophy
The Doctors note that studies report that having sex around once a week or once every two weeks is optimal.
