For those readers expecting a metaphysical article that delves into the true meaning of life- read no further.
Many of the patients I see are in their late 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. I have all my patients complete a hormone self-assessment (rating symptoms between 0 for no symptoms and 10 for severe) and I will usually comment on the higher numbers. If someone in the mid 40’s and older answers 0 for libido/sex drive, painful intercourse, and inability to reach orgasm (indicating no problems) I know that they aren’t having sex. I’ll ask when was the last time they had sex (often greater than one year) and if they are happy with the transition from sex to no sex.
