Why do you think that mens sex drive stays the same while women over a certain age lose their sex drive?

Why do you think that mens sex drive stays the same while women over a certain age lose their sex drive?

Drive may stay but: In men performance dwindles over time. Peak years for men are late teens and through the twenties and maybe early thirties. In women their peak years are about early to mid thirties. Women vary in their interest in sex more widely than men for reasons that include past sexual history, if they have children or not and how good relationships with men are. Men lose performance mostly, women interest. ...Read more

If an woman married a man 14 years younger will there be a biological problem reg sex drive later to her n hw long cn both te gendrs b sexually active?

For now, fine: Things might be fine for now, but the woman will age sooner than the man. They can certainly enjoy sex as long as both want to, as dr. Chand says. Other kinds of incompatibilities could still develop, though. Think demi moore and ashton kutcher, maybe. Not all have to go that route, but it happens. Be well. ...Read more

Can a woman contract urethritis from giving oral sex to a man who already has it?

Can a woman contract urethritis from giving oral sex to a man who already has it?

Not possible, but...: STDs don't travel through the body. Infection occurs only at exposed sites, so there's no way you can get a genital infection from such an exposure. However, your throat can be infected by some causes of urethritis, especially gonorrhea. Both you and your partner should be avoiding sex entirely, oral or otherwise, until you both have been treated for this STD. You need both testing and treatment. ...Read more

Does hepatite b or c transmites from woman to man whith unptotected sex if woman finished antiviral theraphy?

Does hepatite b or c transmites from woman to man whith unptotected sex if woman finished antiviral theraphy?

It depends: Factors include HBeAg status (i.e., duration antiviral treatment in HBeAg negative patients is not clear and may require years & years). Also, vaginal fluid viral load may be higher than blood viral load, so a negative blood viral load test finding would not tell the whole story. Was your partner vaccinated for HBV? I would recommend using condom in future unless told otherwise by your physician. ...Read more

Could a mans sex drive decline in his 40's?

Could a mans sex drive decline in his 40's?

Yes: But it can decline other times too. Also, it can be recovered as long as you're flexible about how you define it. Aspects of sex might change in ways that are definite, but many are attitudes and they can change as you do. It may be that you are in the driver's seat instead of being 'driven' by hormones. Read about adult male sexuality in books or articles. Ask a lover or a doctor for ideas. Enjoy. ...Read more

Is taking testerone good for womens sex drive in their 40's?

Is taking testerone good for womens sex drive in their 40's?

Yes, but............: In the us, only formulations of conjugated estrogen with Methyltestosterone are available. My personal studies suggest that some women will experience an atherogenic profile taking these. Doctors can have dermal gels or ointments compounded that are inexpensive and these, if monitored, can be used safely. It is important to measure pre- and post- levels in a female to see if they are needed! ...Read more
