It is often believed that old people don't have sex anymore. This turns out to be untrue. More variants are invented for making love, because certain positions are not possible anymore. For most women around the age of 50, the menopause occurs. Besides all kinds of psychological and social changes there are also a number of hormonal changes. These hormonal changes make the mucous membrane thinner and more sensitive to pain and it gets damaged more easily. This can lead to pain while making love. However, it's not just the hormones that play a role. Women get psychologically aroused less quickly. Old men ejaculate less quickly; sometimes the desire to make love is also much reduced. Erection problems occur more often. In most cases the frequency of making love is lower, but the pleasure in making love increases. This also depends on the quality of the relationship and how the partners treat each other.
In women, lubrication takes a longer time to occur. A man may often require direct physical stimulation to achieve erection & the same is also true of a woman's lubrication. The colour of the semen changes from white to light yellow, the consistency gets thinner & the quantity decreases. This occurs due to the changes of hormonal levels. The menopause is the cessation in menstrual periods that occur in most women sometime between the ages of 45 to 53. At the time, the body's reproductive machinery shuts downs gradually. Some women harbour the misconception that menopause marks the end of their sexual activities and this fear (about their waning sexuality) increase their sex drive to reaffirm their reasons. As Practitioner of it is our duty to explain to the older couple the physiological changes that occur with age and reassure them that a healthy conjugal relationship is a normal & acceptable form of behavior, at any age, because sexuality is as important for the old as it is for the young. In this regard any inability can be consulted & rectified
