Is better sex after 50 possible?
Having sex on a regular basis – and enjoying it – is essential for men and women of all ages. Good sex may actually lower the risk of hypertension in older women, according to the findings of the first large-scale study of how sex affects heart health later in life. (Source: MSU Today)
The study also discovered that older men who had sex at least once a week were much less likely to experience cardiovascular events like a heart attack or stroke than those with inactive sex lives.
Can I Ask My Doctor For Sex Advice?
Be prepared to provide as much information as possible so that we may help you find the root cause and get back to enjoying sex after 50. This is not simply a matter of walking into the doctor’s office, emerging with a prescription, and regaining your erections. Your doctor will try to determine the cause of your ED in order to recommend an effective treatment.
Sometimes, treating an underlying condition is enough to reverse erectile dysfunction. In other cases, medications or other direct treatments might be needed.
How can sex be improved after 50 years?
It’s normal for men to experience a gradual decrease in sex drive (libido) as they get older. Men’s sexual function (sex drive, erection, ejaculation) tends to fade with age, according to one study’s findings published in BJU International. This decline varies in severity. However, most men maintain some level of sexual interest well into their 60s and 70s. Here is the sex advice you need to fully enjoy better sex for a lifetime.

You may think of sex as a leisure activity, but it can work up quite a sweat. Here are some of the reasons why working out can help you get it on!
It strengthens your muscles. Nothing kills a mood faster than a bad back or a pulled muscle. Explore the most effective strength-training exercises that work for you, and make them a routine.
It improves your mood. Exercise can cause your brain to release chemicals that make you feel better and more at ease. When was the last time you were both depressed and interested in sex?
It helps you look better. Regular exercise can help your body look its best, which can boost your confidence and improve your sex life.
Regular physical activity for women may help with arousal.
Women may benefit from Kegel exercises as well. They can help to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. Stopping in midstream will help you identify those muscles the next time you pee. You can tighten and relax those muscles several times per day.
Men who exercise are less likely than men who do not to suffer from erectile dysfunction, or ED. If you enjoy long-distance cycling, make sure you have a soft, comfortable seat and a bike that is properly fitted to you. This can assist you in avoiding an ED problem.
Before beginning any new exercise or weight loss program, consult with Dr. Jeff Semel at Atlanta Medical Institute.
Take time and relax
Find ways to feel better if arthritis or ongoing pain makes sex less enjoyable. Try a new, more comfortable position, or use pillows for support.
If you have back pain, for example, have sex side by side rather than in the missionary position, which can aggravate back pain.
Pre-Game for Better Sex
Schedule sex for a time of day when you are at your most relaxed. Take a warm bath ahead of time, or take some pain medication if necessary, to relax.
Consider health and medications
Some medications’ side effects can result in sexual problems. Among those are:
- blood pressure medicines
- cholesterol-lowering drugs

When you’ve been with the same partner for a long time, you might want to think about ways to spice up your sex life.

As men get older, more than half of them have difficulties in the bedroom. GAINSWave® has been scientifically proven to treat ED and improve sexual performance in both men and women.
It improves blood flow to the penis, removes microplaque, and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels by using high-frequency, low-intensity soundwaves.
These treatments are completely non-invasive, do not require surgery or drugs, and are performed in the office.
As a result, the blood supply to the penis improves, resulting in harder, longer-lasting erections, increased sensitivity, and an increase in penis girth.
