Menopause happens to every woman, and while some associate it with the end of the world - it could also mean a new age of freedom.

Menopause is a transition, and it can have some positive effects after menopause, levels of estrogen and progesterone fall.

Often the number of hormonal headaches drop too, but doctors say menopause does not have to mean the end of your sex life.

Although a drop in hormones can have an impact, general health and social factors carry more weight. Experts say you can amp up your libido by exercising and to avoid hot flashes, stay away from caffeine, sugar, and spicy foods.
