Owning Pink's Pink Posse

Hi Lissa, I am an 'almost 50' year old female, who has been experiencing peri-menopausal symptoms since age 42. After years of trying over-the-counter supplements, I began HRT a year ago ( a bio-identical hormone cream, applied topically.) Although the HRT had helped tremendously with an increase in libido, one of the most dissapointing symptoms of peri-menopause for me is a reduced intensity with clitoral orgasm.
I have found recently that the use of a G-spot vibrator in combination with clitoral stimulation produces an intense orgasm for me once again, which is great!
My question is: after menopause, is there a decrease in orgasm intensity permanently?
Also - is there a forum here addressing menopausal issues?

Hi Caroline,

First of all, congratulations on enhancing your orgasm via the G-spot vibrator, & for taking things into your own hands, so to speak. :)
Basically, the cold hard truth about menopause is that your reproductive body is done with you. It no longer serves any evolutionary purpose for you to enjoy sex in order to reproduce. However, don't buy in to the gloom & doom about lack of pleasure after menopause.
And re orgasm intensity being permanent or not after menopause, every body is different. There's no telling. But you sound empowered & pro-active.
One thing I will say, is that with age, we develop more emotionally; as our body slows down, we develop in other areas. If you're in a relationship, enhancing the connection between you, and looking into each other's eyes at the moment of orgasm can increase the emotional & erotic intensity.
I hope this helps. :)
