All About Sex: Can Women Orgasm After Menopause?

Every chapter of life comes with its own set of challenges. And during menopause, it can be an uphill battle against hot flashes, mood swings, brain fog, and vaginal discomfort—one that can leave you feeling stressed out and isolated. As you grapple with so many emotional and physical changes, your sex drive can feel like collateral damage, and it’s easy to spiral into self-doubt. Will your libido ever return? Can women even orgasm after menopause at all? 

Don’t fret: Yes, women can still orgasm after menopause. And as tough as it may be to believe when you’re dealing with down-there dryness or unpredictable emotions, learning more about your body and its changes can arm you with the information and the self-awareness to reinvigorate your sex life. Start by identifying and embracing your unique hormone shifts—Kindra offers a hormone assessment quiz to help you out—and then consider the following tips to increase your libido. With a simple shift in mindset and a few habit changes, you’ll be hitting the sheets with more enthusiasm than ever.

 

Defeat dryness. 

 

When your estrogen levels fluctuate as you approach menopause, and continue to drop after the menopause transition, it can cause your vaginal walls to thin and the feeling of natural lubrication to decrease. Estrogen plays an important role in supporting blood flow to the vagina. When blood flow decreases as a result of lower estrogen, this can make arousal and reaching orgasm more difficult. A dry, uncomfortable vagina and less blood flow isn’t exactly a recipe for sure-fire orgasms. 

The good news? There are ways to fight back. Try integrating Kindra’s Daily Vaginal Lotion into your routine. With nourishing oils, moisturizing humectants, and critical vitamins, the pH-balancing formula provides long-lasting hydration that supports natural lubrication. Plus, it’s formulated with niacinamide to help restore the moisture barrier of the intimate skin just as estrogen typically would. This means restoring vaginal skin health, helping to reduce discomfort, dryness, and pain. It’s easy to use, with a free applicator that helps you hit all the right spots. And a whopping 95% percent of women who tried it saw a meaningful improvement in just a few days. In less than a month of continual daily use, most women report no dryness or pain during sex. Try it for 30-days risk free: Kindra offers a money-back guarantee. 

 

Schedule some quality time with yourself. 

 

As your body changes and your hormones fluctuate, the moves that used to drive you wild might not be doing the trick anymore. But change can be a good thing, too: As your sensitivities evolve, you may discover new ways to get in touch with your sexuality that didn’t appeal to you before. If sex isn’t satisfying or pleasurable in the way it used to be, try experimenting with new positions and pleasure points—even if if means chasing a climax on your own. Self-stimulation can be a low-pressure way to get in tune with your body. It’s also a practical antidote to dryness and pain. 

When you masturbate, you stimulate blood flow to your sexual organs and support healthy tissue. You can also activate natural lubricants, which reduce pain and help combat vaginal dryness. The advantages of putting yourself first aren’t limited to the bedroom, either. Make your physical and mental health a priority: Whether you’re penciling in a regular exercise class or planning a mini spa day after work, you just might unlock a sexy new confidence. 

 

Embrace other forms of intimacy. 

 

Connecting with your partner is about so much more than sex. As you navigate your next chapter together, look for other activities that strengthen the bond you share, whether you’re holding hands at the spot where you had your first date or taking lessons and tackling a new hobby together. If you’re both craving sex less often than you used to, lean into what feels right. On the other hand, if your sex drive doesn’t seem to match up with your partner’s, consider enlisting a sex therapist to help you get on the same page: Open and honest communication can go a long way in bringing a couple together. 

 

Get some sleep. 

 

Maintaining a satisfying sex life can often depend to what else you're doing between the sheets. Your hormone levels are directly affected by your natural sleep patterns, and those can be interrupted when you're tossing and turning from night sweats or insomnia. To give your body and your brain the rest they need, start by developing a nighttime routine to help you power down at the end of the day. Avoid screens and bright lights by putting your phone or computer in another room at least thirty minutes before bed. Set the thermostat down low to keep night sweats at bay, and look for light, sweat-wicking pajamas to manage any hot spells. Invest in blackout curtains or a white noise machine to block out any environmental distractions, too. 

You might even consider a sleep supplement. Kindra’s sleep-enhancing capsules reduce feelings of stress with super-antioxidant Ashwagandha, improve blood flow and circulation with clinically-studied Pycnogenol, and help you fall asleep with just the right dose of melatonin. Whatever it takes, making sleep a priority will keep you feeling your best— for yourself and your partner.
