Thank you! I will definitely discuss with my doctor. I read the Menopause and Sex article on WebMD and found it sorely lacking. The comment that doctors are "looking into a possible estrogen androgen pill..." annoys me. I am guessing there are hundreds of remedies for when a man loses interest in sex, but women? Why waste the research dollars. I don't want the drive I had back at 25...I want the drive I clearly had at 50 that immediately dropped off when I stopped the Pill. So I'm definitely going to discuss some HRT options with my doctor.
And to Dr. Minkin...I am patiently awaiting YOUR response to my dilemma. Are you going to suggest romantic dinners and long walks too?View Thread
