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
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.
