Sex After 40
Does it get better with age? Find out
Myth 6: It's normal for sex drive to drop as you age.
Truth: Actually, it may be the opposite. “It's more likely for younger women to experience dips in libido,” says McGrath, probably thanks to the hormonal upheavals of pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and dealing with young children. So if you have little or no desire for any kind of sex—even with George Clooney in your fantasies—see your doctor to be sure you don't have a medical condition, such as thyroid issues or certain cancers, says Dr. Sebastian. Beyond that, libido has a lot to do with how easily you can talk to your partner, and how bothered either of you is by how often you have sex. For one couple, once a month feels fine, whereas for others three times a week is practically nothing. “Figure out how much sex is enough before you decide you have a libido problem,” says McGrath.
