Sex drive change during menopause ?

My wife started menopause about 2 years ago , with skipping menstrual cycles . Now she has hot flashes and no periods . She was not really a sex enthusiast before , but now it's 2 or 3 months inbetween . What could women do to reduce the symptoms of menopause ? Does anyone who has an increased sex drive because of menopause ?

There are both prescription drugs that can help reduce menopause symptoms, and also some herbal alternatives that help & have fewer side-effects. There may be a very small number of women whose sex drive increases during/after menopause, but I don't think it's very common. Unfortunately, for the vast majority of women, menopause causes their sex drive to drop off quite a bit, sometime dramatically. But do try either the herbal or Rx meds & see if either helps - it's worth a try...
