Red Hot Mamas® is the nation’s largest menopause education and support program which has been in existence since 1991 and has been offered in over 250 hospitals.

Lack of sex drive tops the lists of women’s complaints at menopause.
Women still want to have physical intimacy with their partners, but their libidos simply go limp. It’s causing great distress when their sex lives that once sizzled, suddenly starts to fizzle, and just conks out.

Should they just forget about the physical intimacy they once experienced, and give up sex, because of lack of desire?

So what’s a sex- deprived woman to do when there are no medical treatments available?

Here’s what some women have said on Red Hot Mamas® Community Forum on, which has over 350,000 members…

“I have been menopausal for over 2 years now and my sex drive has bottomed out completely. I don’t have any kind of sexual desires at all. I love my husband very much and we have been married for 35 years. Does anyone have any suggestions to get my sex drive back?”

“Has anyone found anything that helps with no sex drive? I have no interest at all in sex. It started to go down when I was 52 and it is now completely gone. I have talked to my doctor who tells me that there is nothing out there that will help.”

“I’m 56 years old and I have no desire for sex. NONE!!   My husband is mad because it’s been months since we’ve had sex. Has anyone found something that helps?”

“My husband tells me “I do things to get you in the mood, but you just won’t.” Poor guy, I do feel so bad when I tell him that I am not in the mood and don’t desire sex. “

Menopause does not have to mean an end to sex!! Women simply don’t want to just do nothing about lack of sexual desire.

We at Red Hot Mamas® believe that these women deserve access to safe and effective treatment options!!
