Study Identifies Five Causes of Low Libido in Postmenopausal Women

Loss of libido is a common symptom of menopause, and sometimes also continues into post-menopause. Changes to libido after menopause are usually due to changes in your hormone levels during menopause. A new study has identified the 5 most common factors that may result in a loss of libido in postmenopausal women.

Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine interviewed 15 women individually and held 3 12-women focus groups.  All of them were over the age of 60, sexually active, and had been assessed as having a low libido. The women answered questions about their sex life and sex drive.

The five most common causes of low libido were found to be postmenopausal vaginal symptoms, erectile dysfunction in male partners, fatigue and bodily pain, life stressors, and body image concerns.

The study was published online ahead of print on November 18, 2019 in the journal Menopause.
