Can I Enjoy My Sex Life At 50 Like I Did When I Was 20?

Many women say that after pregnancy and birthing a baby, their body is never the same. And they are right. This is especially true for those women who gave birth naturally through the vagina. During natural childbirth, the vagina and birth canal will stretch and rupture to facilitate the baby’s exit. This process, combined with the potential use of forceps, suction cups, or even an episiotomy, can add additional trauma to the body.

However, a woman’s body was designed to birth children, and after time, it will heal. While it will never be quite the same as before the birth of a child, you should be able to regain your body and explore your sexuality. No matter how long your sexuality is put “on hold,” here will come a time when you are ready to resume your sexuality and embrace the changes in your body. 

Perhaps you are more emotionally stable, in a new romantic relationship, a better economic situation, and you are now ready to explore your body. As a mother, you may have even overlooked your sexuality, and it was left without attention all this time. This does not mean that you cannot still experience pleasure like you did before you had children. 

Today, attending to matters directly related to your genitals is more popular than before. Society is changing, and many issues that were frowned upon before are considered normal. Unlike several generations of women ago, talking about how tight or flaccid your vagina is, is no longer an awkward and taboo topic. 

Talking openly about the quality of your sex life is something that your gynecologist will understand and support. While vaginal rejuvenation surgery has been around for years, gynecologists of today have more innovative solutions to help with sexual health. 

This new solution is in the form of LASER technology. These LASER treatments have become an exciting treatment that helps improve many symptoms related to the lack of sexuality. With women today gaining greater empowerment and attending to matters as intimate as sexuality, these new treatments make a tremendous difference in the sexual quality of a woman.

Feeling good about your body increases your confidence and self-esteem. Sexuality was made to be enjoyed. If for any reason your feel pain, discomfort, or lack of sex drive, you should discuss these symptoms with your doctor immediately. 

Sometimes surgery can be helpful, or perhaps a single piece of advice will make a difference. Sexologists are experts with psychological barriers to sexual awareness, but you should see a gynecologist for any physical complications of enjoying sex. 

Your sexuality should be enjoyed, and each one of us, no matter if we are 20 or 50, should be able to enjoy it in their own way, regardless of age or personal tastes.

Talk to your gynecologist about the quality of your sexual health or if you have any symptoms of vaginal dryness or urinary incontinence. We know of several alternatives to improve these concerns and increase your sexual drive. From non-invasive procedures such as medicines, exercises, or LASER treatments to a variety of vaginal rejuvenation surgeries.
