increased libido but with inability to achieve orgasm with ease

By February 16, 2011 - 4:15pm

I'm curious of anyone else has experienced what I am going through? 8 months into menopause, I started BHRT (bio-identical hormone replacement therapy) and started my menstrual cycles again. After a year on BHRT, and a few months of the hcg diet, and then doing daily B12 injections for a study at a nearby clinic, I woke up one day with such an increase in libido that it almost ruined my marriage! Of course NOW, my husband is delighted. After 30 years of marriage and sex 2-3x a week for 15 minutes in which I had great orgasms, we are now having sex 1-4 times a DAY for an hour or more and I hardly ever have orgasms. I am thoroughly enjoying our intimate encounters, but totally puzzled as to why I can't seem to achieve orgasm as easily as I used to.

I'm asking myself if I'd go back to the "vanilla" sex with the great orgasms, or if I'd rather stay with the mind-blowing, lingering, luscious sexual sessions without the frequent orgasms?

Hi nanashana

Thanks for your post!

Your "symptoms" (not the right word but I'll use it anyway!) are obviously likely due to your new regime since menopause. I'm not sure why the orgasm levels are down but it may be due to the BHRT or the fact that up to four orgasms a day are harder to achieve than one might think!

Your two choices at the end are not really choices - it's not like you have to pick one or the other. Take things as they come and enjoy!
