Libidos are an essential part of a woman’s health and important for relationships. If you noticed a hormonal imbalance perhaps because of perimenopause you are not alone. Many women have low libidos, a low sex drive, or some sexual dysfunction. Other women can get vaginal atrophy or hot flashes.  Unfortunately, this can be one of the first signs of menopause.

When it comes to women’s health, these issues are not talked about openly enough.  In this episode, Dr. Renee Wellenstein, a board-certified OB-Gyn and functional medicine doctor, discusses why women may experience low libidos, how to identify a low libido, and ways to get your sexy back.
