Sexual pleasure after menopause

When women step into their old age and their menstrual periods are not happening for about a year, their sex drive (libido) or sexual desire might get affected which further affects the sexual arousal on stimulation and sexual satisfaction or orgasm. That’s because there is a decline in the levels of the female sex hormone-the estrogen which further makes the vaginal canal less stretchy and dry and result in decreased blood flow to the vagina or there is an emotional toll. In addition, there might be no sexual pleasure after menopause because of their existing illnesses or injuries.
