Your sexual life can affect your overall mental, physical, and emotional health. It doesn’t matter if the issue you are facing is big or small, every small problem matters and that is why it’s important to have an open conversation with your partner. 

As you age, your sex life might become less enjoyable. This can happen because of the physical transformations your body undergoes as you age. The hormone levels declines, there are certain changes in neurological and circulatory functioning which may lead to sexual problems. But, despite these changes the age acquired confidence, communication and trust can help you have a healthy sex life.

Here are 8 tips for healthy sex life:


Avoid blaming and  criticising

Instead of blaming it on each other, talk. Tell them when you are watching a movie together like “ I really love it when you touch my neck that way”. This way you can make them realise what you really want.

Talk to your partner about your body changes

Weather it be your mood swings due to PMS or hot flashes and vaginal dryness during menopause, talk to your partner about these things. It's much better that he knows what's really going on with you rather than just assuming that this means you have a lack of interest.

Working out or doing any physical activity boosts stamina in bed and also keeps you in a good mood. Exercise also creates a more energetic body, which makes you feel more confident.

Use Lubrication

Women's bodies produce natural lubricant, but due to certain results it can become short in supply and cause vaginal dryness. This makes sex very rough and unpleasant. You can use a water-based lubricant with condoms. 

Try different positions

Talk to your partner about trying different positions to make your sex life more interesting.

Do Kegel exercises


Kegels exercises can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. This mainly involves tightening the muscles that you would use if you were trying to stop urine in midstream. Hold it  for 2 to 3 seconds and release.

Educate yourself

Talk to your gynaecologist if you’re facing any health issues and resolve it together. Use condoms and practice safe sex to prevent yourself from STIs.

Conversation after sex

Talking to your partner after sex can provide a very emotional feeling and will help you connect to your partner more deeply. Discussing the things you enjoyed can improve your relationship.
