Sexual Stages of Women: Ages 20-50

at the age of 40 complain of sexual problems less often than at other

ages. Many women also have fewer women’s diseases.

45-50 years: It is a period of menopause and the level of

estrogen and testosterone starts to fall down.

At an average, this period starts when a woman is about 46. About half

of women begin to have such symptoms as a drop in sexual attraction, irregular

menstruations, and vaginal dryness. To stabilize their normal state, women

take hormonal contraceptive pills.

A woman’s sexuality is also strongly affected by the state of

her thyroid gland. On average, 1 out of 10 forty-year-old women has some

problems with her thyroid gland.

The symptoms of this disease are the following: extraordinary tiredness,

overweight, depression, and a drop in sexual attraction.

But the drop in sexual attraction doesn’t mean that sex can’t

be excellent, especially as the ability to feel an orgasm doesn’t

disappear. Like thirty-year old women, forty-year old women know exactly

what they want from sex, what excites, and they have more time and energy

to meet their wishes. Although women have a decreased sexual attraction,

they can reach a new level of sexual satisfaction. Knowing each other

for a long time, the partners aren’t ashamed to experiment and to

try new poses. But the ironical and sad thing lies in the fact that men

after 40 have some sexual problems, and the frequency of sex considerably

falls down.

50 years: a new beginning.

This period is generally characterized by the beginning of menopause.

When women come up to the period of menopause (generally at the age of

51) they begin to experience a considerable drop in sexuality, almost

down to some kind of dysfunction. It’s not surprising because the

secretion of estrogen (the hormone which is responsible for wetting the

vagina and blood flow to genitals) abruptly drops, as well as the level

of testosterone. The body stops secreting ovules from the ovaries and

the menstrual cycle is over.

But it is too early to say good-bye to sex. A woman that has

approached the period of menopause has at least one-third of her life

at her disposal and she can feel pleasure in intimate relationships. And

although this pleasure may be spoiled by natural physiological changes

in the woman’s body, most women are lucky to overcome most of these

troubles -- especially as the discomfort connected with menstruations

and contraceptives has been left behind.

The most common problem for women during the climacteric period is that

the vagina looses its elasticity and it doesn’t become wet enough

during sexual connection. That’s why it is difficult for women to

feel sexual excitement and orgasm, and men are sometimes led into error

thinking that this dryness is caused by a woman’s indifference to

them. It is possible to overcome this problem through hormone therapy

or by using lubricants. The partners should pay special attention to the

period of preliminary caresses.

Although some women have less interest in sexual connection after climax,

others (and there are quite many of them!) say that sex gives them more

pleasure than earlier. Libido may even become stronger after the finishing

of menstruations, which is quite natural and there is no pathology in

it. According to statistics, four out of five American women that are

over 50 say that after menopause their sexual life has either improved

or stayed the same. American specialists think that sex can even adequately

replace hormone restoration therapy after the beginning of menopause.

It can, to a greater extent, eliminate the unpleasant symptoms of climax.
