You’ve just wrapped up a pleasant evening. You’ve turned out the lights and pulled up the covers, and your hubby rolls over, placing his arm across your torso. You think to yourself: “Oh, not again. Please, no, not tonight.”
I WANT TO WANT IT, BUT
It’s not that you don’t love your husband, or that he doesn’t deserve your “affection.” It’s just that sex just doesn’t seem worth the trouble anymore. What used be exciting is now just “going through the motions” to avoid conflict, and sometimes, even uncomfortable.
There are alternatives to help you “get your mojo back.”
IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S YOUR BODY
Many women are doing exactly that by exploring Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) with physicians who specialize in diagnosing the natural declines in hormone levels as a woman matures.
BHRT has been around for a long time, but the “buzz” intensified in 2009, when Oprah Winfrey told the world about her success with bio-identical estrogen: “After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step.”
NOT YOUR MOTHER’S HRT
Bio-identical therapy differs from the then better-known synthetic hormone replacement therapies in two crucial ways. Derived from natural plant sources like soy and wild yam extracts, BHRT is considered more natural.
Even more important, the depletion of hormones varies by type and amount from woman to woman. At Metro MediSpa, we can test to determine which specific hormones are deficient and by how much, and prescribe individually compounded formulas to address an individual’s needs, just as Oprah’s physician did. Very different from the old “one-pill-fits-all” methods of dispensing the synthetic pharmaceuticals.
Maybe one or more deficiencies are making you too tired and apathetic to bother with romance; maybe your mind is willing but dryness makes sex uncomfortable, or maybe, you’ve simply lost the hormones that fire the desire. While finding the right mix to help you feel like yourself again might take a little time, the alternatives are worth exploring, whether you goal is getting your mojo back in the bedroom or the boardroom!
