Podcast episode 25 uses as a resource the book, The Science of Orgasm, written by Barry R. Komisaruk, Carlos Beyer-Flores and Beverly Whipple.

As we age, Orgasms become less frequent or cease alltogether. An increase in sexual dysfunction after age 50 is normal and is often is due to a hormone imbalance. In situations where hormone imbalance is the cause of the relationship problem, bioidentical hormone replacement is often the solution.

Sometimes intimacy levels that change with age are due to relationships issues. Just because one or both individuals in the relationship gets their hormones balanced, does not bring the return of the previous levels of intimacy. In Dr. my practice, when balanced hormones don’t solve the problem, I often refer the patient to relationship therapist Brett Newcomb for further help.
