]Not sure if this is the right forum for my question but here it goes…Wife and I are both 51 yrs old….A year or so back my wife started the change…Almost immediately after they found a 7 cm ovarian cyst (NON CANCEROUS) but they removed everything anyway. Prior to this we were pretty active sexually speaking but these days she isn’t very interested. Usually it was no problem for her to get the big O but now she just can’t make it up that hill and it is starting to effect my performance as well ……… She is on some hormone drugs so I don’t know how these effect things…Does anyone have experience with these issues?
]Thanks in advance!

It may take awhile. I had some female surgery a few years ago...and felt quite "unsexy". Zero interest in sex.

Give it time. She will get back up to speed....took me about six months to be interested again...

Getting the right hormone balance again can be very tricky in some cases. Unless you find a hormone specialist who really understands the various transformation paths for various hormones and how they interact, you may get the wrong treatment. Every few months you may need blood tests to check the balances until the treatment plan gets the right mix and dosage.

She should ask her doctor about androgen replacement. There should be a thorough evaluation before- hand, considering such factors as stress, depression, fatigue, and a review of medications (some may have sexual side effects.) A physical exam should be done to rule out conditions that might make sex painful. It is possible to use a testosterone skin patch. It may take 6 to 8 weeks to see an effect.

Response to hormone replacement therapy in women is based on symptoms, not blood tests, because blood levels do not correlate well with symptom relief.
