‘There’s a Lid for Every Saucepan’ – a conversation about sex

Aug 7, 2022

In episode #46 Mel and Trish chat with ‘Don’t Give a Fifty’ resident G.P Doctor Karen Baynon about sex during menopause.

According to Doctor Karen, change is good and it’s certainly the case for how we approach sex during midlife because for many of us, sex during or after menopause looks different to what it was when we were younger and guess what? That’s ok.

Doctor Karen sheds light on how to navigate the physiological changes as well as changes in desire and it’s not all on us. Many men have reduced libido at this time as well, they just don’t talk about it.

The girls also chat about the huge challenges faced by women who have undergone chemotherapy treatments for cancer and cannot use mainstream treatments as part of their journey through menopause. Sex is just one of they many areas affected by this experience.

Enjoy this great chat with lots of laughs, important information and messages and answers found in interesting places….
