Sexual pleasure is an important part of life for both women and men. The question is how to increase sexual desire and pleasure for women? How to increase stimulation and sensitivity?
There are several factors for low sexual desire in women. Stress, depression, lack of adequate nutrition, and menopause plays a big role.
The body naturally produce several major hormones that regulate how fast you age, and how young or old you look and feel. In your late 20s or early 30s, your body slows down producing youth hormones. By your 50s and 60s, you are making about 20 percent of the youth hormones you made in your 30s.
With fewer youth hormones circulating through your body, you start to age more noticeably. Fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles start spreading on your face. Your bones and muscles grow weak. Your hair grows thinner. You get sick more often and you start to look and feel older.
The good news is you can slow down and even reverse the signs of aging. There are nutritional foods and supplements shown to enhance libido and sexual pleasure. Unlike Hormone Replacement Therapy with many side effects, you can increase your body’s production of youth hormones by eating more super foods, and exercising for at least 30 minutes, three to five times a week.
Estrogen’s Role in Sex Life
Estrogen is responsible for maintaining the size, flexibility, thickness and lubrication of vagina and its lining. When estrogen level declines due to menopause, certain physical changes take place that make sex uncomfortable and painful.
Lack of lubrication is the first vaginal problem caused by estrogen deficit. The lining gradually becomes thinner and less elastic so it is easily inflamed, irritated and may even bleed during intercourse. Some women can’t have comfortable intercourse few months after menopause.
The physical changes gradually progress with time. It usually takes 5 to 10 years from the time you lose your primary estrogen source before you experience severe vaginal problems. An active sex life can help delaying these changes for a few years. Sex keeps the vagina more elastic and lubricated.
Every woman who is a few years past menopause and doesn’t take estrogen experiences vaginal problems. Estrogen restores vaginal tissues to a more youthful state. It keeps the vagina thicker, moister and more flexible.
All women produce androgens (male hormones) in their ovaries. Testosterone is one of these hormones that can increase sexual desire. If tests show that your androgen level is low, your doctor can prescribe a low doses of testosterone to boost your sex drive.
Studies show that exercise can increase testosterone level in both men and women. Many herbal enthusiasts believe that ginseng increase hormonal activity and enhance sex drive

What is the Best Natural Remedies for Perimenopause?
As a woman ages, the ovaries shrink in size, stop releasing eggs and produce less estrogen. Technically, a woman must not have menstruated for a full year to be menopausal. Women who have their ovaries removed during hysterectomy become menopausal overnight.
The average age for menopause in the United States is fifty, although some women may experience this as early as forty.
In natural menopause, a woman’s last period is surrounded by a number of years in which other physical changes occur. The slow decline of estrogen production begins long before a woman stops menstruating. Usually estrogen levels will fluctuate and a woman’s period also grow more irregular during this period, known as perimenopause.
During this time, women can experience hot flashes, night sweats, sleep difficulties, insomnia, short-term memory loss, vaginal dryness, decrease in sexual desire, skin changes, depression and mood swings. Your mood can suddenly switch from one extreme to another. You can be very short-tempered, anxious and depressed. All of these changes are triggered by decreasing levels of estrogen that is produced by ovaries.
During this time you can still get pregnant. If you’re on birth control, don’t stop until your periods have ceased for an entire year.
If you experience hot flashes, night sweet, and other symptoms of pre-menopause and menopause, you can take soya and flaxseed to reduce the effects of these symptoms.
