In brief: Quite high %

Not uncommon for women to experience fall off in sex drive associated with hormonal changes approaching or going through menopause.
A number of women just "don't feel like it any more". Others begin to find sex "dirty and unpleasant". Causes can be hormonal, medical, from medication or psychological. Discuss with your gynecologist. Simple hormonal replacement therapy may take care of problem.
