3 reasons why your sex drive is dying


Menopause – most women dread it.

Hot flushes, mood swings, restlessness; there really isn’t much to look forward to. One of the most noticeable effects of menopause is a distinct decrease in sex drive. You just are never in the mood anymore.

While this does happen to both men and women as they age, according to Menopause.org women are two to three times more likely to be effected, particularly when they enter their 40s and 50s, which is around menopause sets in.

Coincidence? We think not.

Now, before you swop out your seduction underwear for granny panties, there is hope. Understanding why your sexual desire is lower can help you combat it and get back on the horse.

1. Hormones are messing you up

Yes, we all hate it when our hormones are used against us to explain our behaviour, but, in this case, it’s true – and not for the reason you think.

According to WebMD, the lower levels of estrogen and testosterone in a woman’s body makes it harder to be stimulated and become aroused. It takes a lot more work to satisfy you, and when it doesn’t happen, you can lose interest.

This makes products, like Evarmiles Gel, great to use. With a naturally derived active ingredient, Evarmiles Gel enhances, your sexual pleasure and comfort. You only need to apply it to the intimate area a few minutes before engaging with a partner.

2. Sex is more uncomfortable  

Hormones are at work here too. Less estrogen means a drop in blood supply to the vagina. It turns out women need blood down there too. The lower blood supply affects vaginal lubrication causing the vagina to be too dry for comfortable sex. Thankfully, this can solved with the use of useful products like Evarmiles Gel, a clinically tested sexual stimulant that also enhances a woman’s natural lubrication. It's a natural stimulant that enhances sexual pleasure for both you and your partner.

3. Psychological block

According to Menopause.org, going through menopause results in many different emotional transitions. Everything from aging to reproduction comes into question and this can make you less motivated to have sex. We all know how hard it is to enjoy something when our head and heart is not in it. It may also put strain between you and your partner when intimacy is not often experienced or maintained. A gel like Evarmiles, helps your arousal and allows the intimacy between you and your partner can be kept alive.
