Many people falsely believe that a sex life shuts down as people age. Many people especially women become more sexual as they age because they may have become more comfortable with their bodies and have shed some of the shameful sexuality teachings. Some women may feel they missed out on the fun of a great sex life and have a desire to alter that. They may have had a sexually dissatisfactory first marriage and find they are back out on the dating circuit, a second chance at exploring their sexuality.

That said, many women may experience a medical condition that will impact this sexual exploration especially if they are over the age of 50. At menopause the estrogen receptors decrease in a woman’s vagina and she may experience vaginal dryness. This may lead to painful sex and low sexual desire. A woman may think her sex life is over but this could not be further form the truth!

The good news is is that there are treatments. One of the treatments is a personal moisturizer, a hormone-free gel known as Gynatrof. Gynatrof contains hyaluronic acid which is readily absorbed by the dry vaginal tissues. A women does not need a prescription for Gynatrof and uses it nightly for one week and then twice weekly. It takes two to three months to optimize and is lifelong therapy.

The other benefit of Gynatrof is that it may be used as a great lubricant during sex while the Gynatrof is optimizing. Once Gynatrof optimizes, the need for it’s use as lubricant will not be necessary as a woman’s natural moisture is restored. Many women (and men) are delighted to learn about Gynatrof in my clinical practice. So please share this information with your friends, sisters and anyone who may benefit! Women helping women is the only way to get back to the bedroom.
