Sexual intercourse good for women at menopause, says Gynaecologist

Rakiya Sa’adu, a Consultant Gynaecologist at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), has said that women should not be apprehensive about sexual intercourse at menopause.

Sa’adu said gave the advice on Sunday at a Ramadan Lecture organised for women Islamic groups by the wife of Kwara governor, Mrs Omolewa Ahmed, in Ilorin.
She said that active sexual intercourse during menopause was ‘ideal and beneficial’ to women for a healthy living. 
“Active sexual intercourse at menopause will prevent shrinking of the vagina and is desirable for a  healthy living. 
“Menopause does not mean stoppage of sexual intercourse; women, at this period, need to be sexually active as there is no risk of any unwanted pregnancy,” she said. 
She advised women to be more positive in their thinking about menopause and entertain no fear in attaining the menopause age. 
According to her, positive thoughts about it would enable them to prepare well for it. 
Sa’adu advised menopause women to use lubricants before having sex to prevent tears and painful intercourse.
