    Have you tried cannabis oil! I know I'm speaking as a man but I'm also on a lot of meds which lowered my sex drive. Since starting taking the oil drops 6 months ago it's helped my sex drive massively.  The only I've got now is that i can't find a woman who can see past my crutches and see a man who has feelings as well as those in the so called 'normal society '. I hope I've been of some help and never think your alone in your predicament

    Hi @ords40 sorry to hear this, have you spoken to your GP about this?

    Hi @ords40
    Lots of medications can have an effect on sex drive and if you are going through the menopause that can alter things too, it is worth having a chat with your GP if you have menopausal symptoms that are troubling you.

    Your GP can offer treatments and suggest lifestyle changes if you have severe menopausal symptoms that interfere with your day-to-day life, including:

    Your GP may refer you to a menopause specialist if your symptoms don't improve after trying treatment or if you're unable to take HRT.
