What Causes Increased Sex Drive In Women Over 40?

My wife has had a partial hysterectomy approximately two years ago. Recently her sex drive has gone into overdrive. SHe is 43 years old. Should I be concerned about her health?

Answer

Hi Greg,

It is common knowledge that women mature sexually in their 30's and 40's where men usually hit their sexual peak at a much younger age. This question is probably best answered in the sexual health section located here.

I had a hysterectomy at the age of 30 and for me, the freedom of knowing I didn't have to worry about pregnancy and could be free and open with my partner was a great motivator for me. Plus, sex is a great way to relieve a headache :) I wouldn't be concerned. Just enjoy the benefits!

Hope you find something useful here.
