Causes and treatment of low sexual desire in women

 


Among the things that cause embarrassment for most women and refrain from speaking about it or even resolving it as a result of shame and embarrassment, is the problem of frigidity or low sexual desire.  Although a large percentage of women suffer from this problem.


 For all those women who suffer from the problem of frigidity, I present this article to me.  I hope you find the benefit you need and enjoy reading it.


 Impaired sexual desire is a common problem for women, but rare for men.  And most women who suffer from low sexual desire, have no problem reaching orgasm and achieving orgasms.  Instead, they don't have the desire to have sex in the first place.


 Fortunately, for many women this lack of sexual desire is only temporary.  A woman's sexual desire will naturally fluctuate over the years.  The rise and fall in sexual desire usually coincides with the beginning or end of a relationship with a partner or with major life changes such as pregnancy, illness or menopause.


 Women usually suffer from low sexual desire (frigidity) as a result of low hormones, work pressures and other problems that leave their impact in the bedroom.


 Studies have shown that nearly a third of women between the ages of 18-59 have low libido.  Unlike men, their main sexual complaint is erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation.


 Be optimistic, my friend, there are many methods that restore a woman's sexual desire to normal, which is usually represented by changes in lifestyle and in the techniques of having sex as well, in addition to some prescription drugs.  Studies and research related to the causes of impotence and frigidity during the past few years have shown the existence of several treatments that have shown effectiveness in both men and women, which led to the return of sexual desire to the life of women.


 Symptoms of low sexual desire in women:


 There is no specific number to determine the number of times you want to have sex to find out whether you suffer from a lack of desire or not, this matter varies from woman to woman.  But there are some factors that can tell you about the symptoms of frigidity or a weak sexual desire, including:


 If you do not enjoy any method or style of sexual practices. You do not have any sexual thoughts or fantasies whatsoever. Do not feel aroused by any scene, situation or story related to sexual matters.




 Common causes of low sexual desire in women:


 The sexual drive naturally decreases with age, due to several physiological factors. However, sexual desire also includes personal and psychological factors.


 There are many areas of life that can affect a woman's sexual desire, such as physical and emotional problems, life experiences, and the nature of the current relationship between the two partners.


 We mention the most common reasons:


 Sexual problems:


 If you suffer from pain during sex, the inability to reach the stage of orgasm (orgasms), or problems with the partner's performance of the sexual process, it can lead to a weakening of your sexual desire.


 Social and cultural influences:


 The pressures of life and social relations in addition to the media that display pornographic images of sexual activity, these matters can negatively affect sexual desire.


 Changes in hormone level:


 As in the case of pregnancy and breastfeeding, the changes that occur in the levels of hormones during this period in addition to other factors such as fatigue and stress all significantly affect sexual desire. After menopause, the estrogen hormone decreases significantly and the vagina becomes drier, which causes greater pain and discomfort.  Comfort during sex.  Of course, with some women who continue to have successful and mutually satisfactory sex even after menopause, also from hormonal changes after menopause, testosterone decreases as well.  The hormone testosterone is present in men and women, but in different proportions, but this hormone affects the stimulation of sexual desire in both sexes.  This hormone peaks in the mid-twenties in women, then tapers off until menopause, when it drops dramatically.


 Health problems:


 There are many diseases that affect sexual desire, such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiac and neurological diseases, and thyroid disorders.


 Take some prescription drugs:


 Some drugs reduce a woman's sexual desire, such as antihypertensive drugs, birth control pills, antidepressants and antiepileptics.


 The personal relationship between the two partners:


 The emotional discomfort of the relationship in addition to many other reasons that may pass on the lives of the two partners that may leave an impact on the sexual life.


 Some daily habits:


 Such as heavy alcohol, drugs, and smoking, which reduces blood flow and thus weakens sexual arousal.  All of these factors have a clear effect on sexual activity.


 Some surgeries:


 Especially surgeries related to the breast or the reproductive system, they can affect sexual function and desire for sex.


 Fatigue and tiredness:


 Constant exhaustion and a responsible lifestyle have a huge impact on sexual desire.


 Treatment of low sexual desire:


 The reason for a woman's low sexual desire is usually due to both physiological and psychological factors.  Therefore, treatment requires several methods together to restore sexual desire again.


 Changing medical drugs or adjusting the dose: If the reason for the weak sexual desire is some of the medical drugs that are being taken, in this case, changing the dose or composition of the drug substance is useful in restoring the sexual desire to normal.  For example: the antidepressants Paroxetine and Fluoxetine sometimes lead to a weak sexual desire.  However, with changing the composition of the antidepressant to Bupropion, which is a different type of depression medication, it is possible to restore sexual desire to its normal position because it does not affect that. Treating the basic health problems that contribute to low sexual desire and that may require surgical treatment such as removing fibroids if  Found or others. Vaginal estrogen creams: Especially after menopause, frigidity and vaginal dryness can be treated with topical vaginal creams that contain estrogen. Testosterone therapy: Many doctors recommend the use of testosterone therapy for women who are weak  Sexual desire before menopause. Nutritional supplements and eating foods that are useful in stimulating sexual desire, which I will describe in detail later. Woo your husband more and try to be honest about your feelings about sexual relations.  As if asking him to continue foreplay for a longer period during sex, to use different and new sexual positions, or to change the location and timing of having sex during the day.  These changes will improve your sexual life and increase your desire for sex. Stay away from bad habits such as smoking, drugs and excessive alcohol consumption if they are the reason behind the weak sexual desire.


 Increase sexual desire with natural therapy:


 Of the foods that have shown a clear effect on the sexual desire for both sexes, we mention:


 Fruits such as figs, bananas and avocados are rich in vitamins and minerals that improve blood flow to the genitals and enhance sexual desire. Chocolate, in addition to its irresistible, delicious taste, chocolate releases Phenylethylamine PEA and Serotonin, which lead  To increase sexual desire and improve mood. Among the herbs that have been shown to be useful in treating weak sexual desire in women and that enhance sexual performance in men and prolong the period of intercourse, are basil (basil), watercress, ginseng (ginkgo biloba) and a Brazilian plant known as moira  Muira puama and oats (Avena sativa), which are used as both food and medicine due to its various therapeutic benefits: clove seeds, fenugreek, fennel, anise, ginger, cinnamon, walnuts, almonds and cashews.


 It is also worth noting that fluctuations in sexual desire are normal in every relationship and at some point in life.  If this is an occasional period, then do not focus your attention on sex, but if it lasts for a long time and in a different way than before, in this case you must follow the subject and choose the appropriate treatment.
