Thanks for posting your query.

Low energy with no sexual drive in menopausal age is seen commonly due to stress and anxiety or relationship problems with your partner. Talk to your husband for the psychological support.

If you are having any stress, then this psychological support will help. A healthy affectionate communication with the partner helps in decreasing anxiety and stress.

However if there is no stress and anxiety then the physical causes need to be ruled out. These include anemia, diabetes and hormonal imbalance. Some investigations which need to be done are estradiol, thyroxine and thyrotrophin levels in the blood test reports.

Estrogen therapy as pill, patch or gel, vaginal cream or a slow-releasing suppository or ring that you place in your vagina can increase blood flow to the vagina and help improve desire. But they are available under prescription of a gynecologist. You need to rule out all the organic causes behind your symptoms with the help of your gynecologist.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.

Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
