Let’s be honest, menopause symptoms and sex aren’t two things you really want to hear in the same sentence. Sadly, sex is just one more area of our lives that menopause likes to get in the way of. If you’re one of the lucky few who seems to breeze through menopause with minimal issues, then you probably won’t have given this topic much thought. If you’re one of the 80% of women who suffer from symptoms such a vaginal dryness and low libido, then you’ll know exactly where we’re coming from!
Hot flushes, weight gain and mood swings are more commonly associated with going through the change. The truth is, the symptoms we tend to feel more embarrassed about, such as vaginal dryness, are actually just as common! The only difference is that they are discussed far less openly. It can also be difficult to admit to your friends that you no longer have the desire to get intimate with your other half. You might even be feeling as though your marriage is failing because this element of your relationship is missing. It’s time to stop blaming yourself and realise that the hormonal changes in your body are to blame!
Get Your Sex Life Back On Track
The real question is, how can you start enjoying sex again? Let’s look at the various areas that might be impacting this and what you can to in each case.
Low Libido: It’s very common and completely normal to have a much lower libido as we age. 87% of married women claim that they have decreased desire and 83% find it very difficult to climax. So do you simply have to put up with this as you go through menopause? Of course not!
Our LaBalance device could help. Proven to assist with up to 24 different symptoms including a loss of sex drive; many women report an improvement after wearing their LaBalance for the initial three months. You might also want to consider a line of products developed by Dr Eccles; Bio ‘O’. His line of products was created for improving sex drive and sexual function in both men and women.
Vaginal Dryness: Vaginal dryness can cause pain and difficulty during sex. If something is no longer enjoyable, you naturally stop doing it as often. A lubrication can help with this problem, but if discomfort is felt throughout the day it’s better to try and alleviate this issue with the LaBalance.

Night sweats tend to happen in the middle of the night while you’re fast asleep, so they’re not an obvious barrier to being intimate. The problem here is that if you continually wake up in soaking sheets and need to change them in the early hours of the morning, it can start to impact things. For example, you or your partner might prefer to sleep in separate beds to avoid waking them during these episodes. This creates a divide between you both and negatively impacts your sex-life.
Hot flushes and night sweats are the two most common reasons women turn to the LaBalance for help. Our device could dramatically reduce or completely eliminate your night sweats. (Proven to help up to 71% of women in our study).
