Since my wife hit the menopause, our great sex life has fallen off a cliff | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE my wife hit the menopause I’ve become celibate overnight. I’m 57 and she’s 53.

We used to have such a great sex life but it has fallen off a cliff after she started getting symptoms at 51.

I’ve read up a lot about it and I really want to support her.

She says it’s great I take the trouble to understand what she’s going through, but I really miss the passion.

She’s also never very affectionate any more. We used to hold hands in bed.

I’m so fed up.
