Before menopause my wife's breast were incredibly aroused

Customer Question

Before menopause my wife's breast were incredibly aroused during sex. Over the past couple years that has gone to zero. She is being treated right now to get her thyroid level where it should be. Could this have contributed to the feeling loss and is there anything she can do to regain her feeling again?
JA: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?
Customer: First time. She's too embarrassed to ask her mail gynecologist or regular doctor. She just had a hysterectomy but overall pretty healthy
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of

after menopause, a woman's estrogen levels can decline down low

if she wishes, she can ask her doctors for estrogen replacement therapy which can help boost her estrogen levels back up to pre-menopausal levels.

her thyroid levels most likely would not cause her menopause and low estrogen levels.

breast cells are estrogen sensitive and grow large with estrogen in the body.

she should not be too embarrassed to talk to her doctors about this.

after menopause, she can also have vaginal dryness from drops in her estrogen levels as well.
