Abstract : The endocrine changes during menopause may leave some women vulnerable to developing sexual problems, which can decrease sexual satisfaction, quality of romantic relationships, and quality of life. Sexual self-schemas (SSS), cognitive structures that are associated with sexual functioning, have not systematically been examined in women going through menopause. Similarly, SSS have not been examined between racial groups as well as how any variation in SSS between racial groups may differentially impact female sexual functioning during menopause.
