DEAR DEIDRE: WILL my wife want sex again once she’s been through “the change”?
Since she started the menopause, my wife has completely gone off sex. I’m so frustrated. She is 49 and I’m 52.
We used to have sex three or four times a week.
But over the past couple of years, our bedroom activities have come to a standstill.
These days, I’m lucky if we do it three or four times a year. Even then, it only happens if I initiate it – and it’s always a quickie.
She just lies there, waiting for me to get it over with.
I love her and want her to enjoy sex like she used to. I also want us to get back the intimacy we’ve lost.
I have tried talking to her about it, but she doesn’t like discussing sex.
My only hope is once she’s come out the other side of menopause, things will get back to normal.

DEIDRE SAYS: Unfortunately, hormonal changes in menopause can lead to loss of libido and discomfort during sex.
Talk to your wife again, explaining how much you miss intimacy.
Ask if she’ll see her doctor. Hormonal therapy can help.
My support pack, Love And The Mature Woman, should be useful for you both to read.
