Scared to lose sex drive
Where to start... This menopause thing does not sound good .... I guess I have two main issues to start off with. I am 52 and am going through the change, no period for 4-5 months now. I do have a lot of the other symptoms everyone speaks of: memory, mood, some hot flashes but the two items that are most concerting to me now are - 1) I am terrified that I am going to lose my libido/sex drive. So many women have said they just don't have any interest in sex anymore. I love sex and enjoy it immensely. Does everyone lose the drive going through this time? and 2) I am recently always very sleepy. Not tired, sleepy. I have, so far, just about the same energy level as before. I do think I will lose more of the energy but it is the sleepy issue that is getting me. I sleep a full 8-9 hours a night take a nap during the day (usually 1/2 hr after work) and still feel sleepy, heavy eyed. A lot of women here mention not being able to sleep, but I was just wondering if there is something I can do about the sleepy thing. note: I am an avid exerciser and eat will.
