Anyone else? I thought I was going mad until I discovered this was actually a thing!! Seriously I can't concentrate at work thinking of sex wanting to watch porn anything to do with getting sex. And I just want to go on and on. It's a need not a desire. The DH thinks he's won the lottery as we've not had much sex for about the last 5 years then about 6 weeks ago BAM !!! I'm 50 and have been having menopausal symptoms for about 6 years. Just want to know It's not just me! hmm

No not just you, although i found it very frustrating as DH wasn't on the same wavelength at that time!

No it’s not just you. You might want to read another thread that’s been running a while.

I think I remember that sexual arousal could indicate potential problems with the vulva and vagina. I'll see if I can find more info before I send everyone into a blind panic

Baby is only 9 months old.

I’m 41 OP and definitely have spells like this. My periods are still dead regular but I think I’m technically peri-menopausal as I’m over 40? I have been a bit worried about it actually (I had a horrible injury with DD1s childbirth and a family cancer history ) so I’d be interested to see what @Northernsoullover says. But yes, I have been very distracted!
