Boosting Your Libido in Menopause

While navigating the menopause experience, it’s common for many women to suffer from a low sex drive. Common reasons for low libido include lower levels of estrogen and vaginal dryness — but don’t worry, it's not gone forever! Check out our favorite tips on how to boost your sex drive and start feeling frisky again.

Stretch It Out

Practicing yoga to strengthen the mind-body connection can increase desire, arousal and overall satisfaction. Start your day with 5 to 10 minutes of sun salutations to get grounded and increase blood flow which can help not only your heart, but your Lady V as well.

Get Enough Sleep

Your natural circadian rhythms controls hormone secretion (aka orgasms), so healthy sleep patterns are vital. Try integrating sleep hygiene practices — unplug from screens an hour before bed, listen to relaxing music or use calming essential oils — and aim for a minimum of 7 hours per night. If you're having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, the Kindra Sleep Enhancing Supplement can help you catch more ZZZs.

Get in the Mood 

Serotonin is the “feel good” hormone that reduces anxiety, improves mood and boosts sexual desire. Try increasing your serotonin levels with CBD, which helps stimulate the release of the hormone in your brain naturally. 

Help Yourself Along

Self-stimulation can be a valuable tool, as a way to better know what sexually satisfies you, and to reduce pain and vaginal dryness by activating a natural lubricant. 

Increase Moisture

Vaginal dryness is common for those in peri/menopause, but you don’t have to stay stuck in the desert. 95% of women reported their intimate area feeling moisturized and/or hydrated after trying out the Kindra Daily Vaginal Lotion. Using it daily can significantly improve dryness and reduce pain during sex.
