    Hi @JnM, welcome to the Community! x

    Many women experience low libido & vaginal dryness during the menopause, but the good news is there are lots of natural remedies to try. A good lubricant can do wonders - there are some really great plant-based, chemical- free ones out there. Actually we have Nicky from @Sylk here on the forum -  they are a small family-owned business  & are experts in female dryness, feel free to have a look at this thread or ask her even:

    This article is also full of ideas, especially for combatting dryness:


    It's also worth keeping in mind that our bodies are all different, so don't get upset if it takes a little time & experimentation to find something that works well for you!

    Hope this helps, I'll do some research on hot flushes & and weight gain and I'll get back to you x

    thank you for posting this question and I am see the replies that link to dryness this is not my issue but like you I am seeking any guidance on increasing libido . I have gone from a very healthy active intimacy to 0 for last 6 years and have a loving patient husband who is very affectionate.

    if anyone had any real advice and tips on remedies to truly increase libido please share 💜

    many thanks in advance

    Hi @Daphne29, I've been taking Maca Root for two weeks now and the difference is impressive!! My libido increased a lot and have a much higher energy level too. Maca however stimulates the production of oestrogen so you should definitely check with your doctor first. x

    @Daphane29. Taking the supplement Omega7 will improve your vaginal dryness - it can take a while before you notice. Its been through clinical trials showing definite improvements after 8-12 weeks.
