Victoria Milan has recently found that most women who reach the menopause feel more sexually liberated and are more sexually active afterwards.

Menopause does not put an end to a healthy sex life

Menopause does not put an end to a healthy sex life

Once the menopause is over, many start to think about finding a lover if their husbands are no longer satisfying their needs in the bedroom.

80% of women fear losing their libido once they hit the menopause, however they need not worry as these findings suggest such hormonal changes see sex drives surge or at least stay the same.

One of the main reasons for this is the removal of the risk of unwanted pregnancy so they can enjoy sex without any worry of having more family or starting one.

These findings might make husbands want to up their game- if they don't they might discover that their wife is playing away from home later down the line.

Half of women who were asked about their current sex life were not satisfied and a whopping 63% are considering an affair as a result. There is a common misconception that women lose their sexual spark after the menopause, however with 80% experiencing the opposite, many women feel the need to hide their new appetite for sex for fear of being judged. Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said the survey proved that women shouldn't see menopause as a sign they have reached their use-by date. "This survey shows menopause should only be viewed in a positive way: no more cramps, no risk of pregnancy and according to our members - a higher sex drive. From the data we've obtained, it seems going through menopause is the best thing that can happen to a woman's sex life," Mr Vedal said.
