Help with low libido
Hi all the worst thing I now find at the age of 54 is complete loss of libido. Absolutely no sex drive whatsoever and I find it really upsetting (as obviously so does my husband). I started HRT when I was 48 as the hot flushes were making me so dizzy and faint and my emotions all over the place. I thought HRT was amazing and it kept me feeling ‘normal’ in all areas including sex drive. Then 18 months ago I was called into GP and told that’s it no more HRT as been on it 5 years. Since then a complete downward spiral. I feel emotionally all over the place all the time, my sex drive completely disappeared and the forgetfulness so bad I think I may have early-onset dementia. I pray it’s not that and is only another symptom of this horrible menopause .
So my question to you all is, have you found anything that actually helps get your sex drive back, makes you feel less emotional and basically ‘normal’ again, other than HRT? I would really much prefer to go back on HRT and went to GP some months ago to beg for it, the man I saw said I need anti-depressants not HRT, and I was so cross I didn’t bother going back. I don’t need anti depressants I just want to be ME again. I have tried all different vitamins, including magnesium but no joy in the libido department.
Thanks in advance
