Does it get better or Bitter

P'Gell P'Gell
I'm not 50 yet, but My Man is. According to him, he's not only hornier than he's ever been, but the sex is better and certainly more frequent. (Good thing about not only having your own house, but being at the age that the nest is slowly emptying. It'll be years before ours is completely empty, but the days of diapers and breastfeeding and getting up every night with small kids are certainly over for us.)

I had a kind of Mid Life Crisis not long ago, and my already slightly high sex drive went into super uber-overdrive as I hit peri-menopause full stride. I redid my appearance, and I feel younger than I did 10 years ago. We've has some small issues, with his erections not quite as reliable as they were when he was younger and I've had some hormonal issues with orgasm, but I think these challenges have just forced us to be even more ingenious in our sex life.

Yes, it's better....

P'Gell - We agree - things are definitely better for us.

I'm well over 50 and my wife is in her mid 40's. She was prescribed a progesterone cream that has completely eliminated PMS and ultra-sensitive breasts that were getting in the way - the diagnosis was estrogen dominance.

Have your man give Cialis a try! Harder and definitely longer lasting is my experience - I never go without it any more!

Gunsmoke, I'd love him to. I was actually prescribed Viagra. I was having a difficult time having a Climax, after decades of no issue at all, when my peri-menopause became very intense, and the doctor thought the V would help me. It didn't help me a lot (but it was fun) but My Man took some, and WOW it was FUN.

However, he refuses to go to the doctor and get his own prescription and our insurance will NOT pay for mine. They would pay for his (with a co-pay, as they want their cut) but I was told that "it is not FDA approved for women" so I paid $67.00 for FOUR pills! The doc prescribed 30, so they are sitting at the pharmacy, until we can pay for them, but damn, almost $20.00 each? What little it did for me wasn't worth the money, but HE could get it for a lot less and I really think it would be fun and healthy if he did.

He hates to go to the doctor, and really should (he has high BP and thinks if he ignores it it will go away. I'm a nurse and this kind of thinking drives me CRAZY!) If I could convince him, I think we could BOTH use the meds and have a really great time.

I use a estrogen creme and a small amount of progesterone (which I have to be careful with, because Depo Provera, which I used years ago, for some plumbing problems is pure progesterone, in a 12 week injection, (and stronger than the low dose pills used in most peri-menopause treatments) and it killed my sex drive. I am SO sensitive to hormones!

Wonderful to read all of these.

We're also having a fabulous time! I'm 59 (today) and hubby is 56, and we have astonishingly marvelous sex almost every day. We've been together almost two years, and I thought it would kind of calm down by now, but it keeps getting better and more delicious. I had no idea - that I could be multi-orgasmic every time, that I could love sex so much that I just can't wait to make love with my darling bear....

Oh, so gorgeous!!!

From personal experience I have to agree with you on this!

I had moderate erection problems starting when I was 50. Just thought it went along with age. At 51 ED seemed to become a more frequent concern and the same year started having continual chest pains. Ended up with two stents inserted into coronary ateries to open up blockages of 98% and 92%.

One year later I finally got up the nerve to talk to doctor about the ED problems I was having and he just smiled and said "I wondered when you would bring that up!" Seems that ED and heart disease often go hand in hand along with all the drugs you end up taking. So my advice would be that if you are having ED problems, talk to your doctor as soon as possible to see what might be causing it.

As far as sex getting better after 50, I would have to ask what the defination of better is. Sex is much for "comfortable" now that we are getting older. We know each others bodies better, as well as our own. We know what works, what doesn't, we have more time with the children gone. We are more comfortable with toy use, and just seem to have more fun than we use to.

Sex was more exciting when we were younger, all the new sensations etc. But I would not trade that excitement for the pleasure we now recieve, the giving of pleasure to the one we love.

Unfortunately for me, I didn't bring up the ED issue with my doctor. He asked if I was having erection problems following my first stent placement. Guess I should have brought it up earlier

I'm only 29, so I can't answer that, but my mom's hinted that it seems to be just fine.
