When women experience hormonal changes, the effects can range from [email protected] dryness, loss of [email protected] and low libido. In order to get past this very frustrating issue, the root of it has to be identified. It is important to have a healthy life…and bedroom.
Dr. Jennifer Landa, Chief Medical Officer of BodyLogicMD, the nation’s largest franchise of physicians specializing in bioidentical hormone therapy, suggests that women should re-claim their s*e*xual health through healthy hormone management.
Women have to have a balance of progesterone and estrogen in order to have their best s*e*xual health. When a women has too much estrogen due to genetics, childbirth and aging, it can cause her to have a low s*e*x drive.
Symptoms of estrogen dominance include:
– Low s*e*x drive
– Foggy brain
The best way to treat a woman who has too much estrogen is with progesterone therapy. Progesterone is important for women’s health, in the bedroom and beyond. Not having enough progesterone has been linked to poor sleep and lack of “desire”.
When most people hear testosterone, they immediately associate it with men, rather than women but in order to have optimal s*e*x functions, both men and women need testosterone. Both men and women need the hormone for desire– it is the key component to a healthy s*e*x drive, including s*e*xual desire, s*e*xual responsiveness and sensitivity.
Testosterone also impacts other components of a woman’s health:
– Increases thickness of vaginal tissues
– Increases energy
– Sharpens memory
– Stabilizes mood – acts as an “emotional shield”
– Improves self-confidence, self-esteem
– Maintain lean muscle mass, reduces fat
Oxytocin is often referred to as the “cuddle hormone” and it will increase when people touch each other skin to skin. More oxytocin means more enjoyable foreplay and has been known to induce [email protected] “activity”. Lying together with no clothes on and exploring each other through touch improves bonding and delivers an overall more pleasurable “intimacy”experience.
According to Landa,
“S-x plays an integral role in your well-being; it’s more than simply a means for reproduction. S-x impacts your energy, your passion for life, your mood and should be carefully managed and protected throughout your life – and it starts with your hormones.”
