Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredThere's nothing to be ashamed about: 40% of women will experience a decline in libido as their bodies age. Well before women hit menopause, their bodies begin to make changes that affect hormone levels. The ovaries, which are the source of 50% of our testosterone, become less active, decreasing the production of the sex hormone that is key to our libido. As estrogen decreases, so does testosterone. It's this decline in testosterone that's really responsible for a reduced sex drive.Helpful? 11 people found this helpful.
