Generally, sex is supposed to be fun and adventurous, but then there are times in a woman's life when sex becomes boring, uninteresting and worse still, painful. If this is you, I guess a lot may be running through your mind as to the possible cause of your sexual problem. Not to worry we have compiled a list of common female sexual problems that may lead to loss of interest in sexual activities and intimacy. Here is a list of common female sexual problems that can result in low sexual libido:
Lack of Desire
Lack of sexual desire is one of the most common sexual problems most women are bound to experience at one point in their life. According to doctors, factors that may lead to a lack of sexual desire in women includes stress, exhaustion, depression and feeling unappreciated. This sexual condition can also be caused by awkward sexual experiences or lack of sexual connection with your partner.
In more severe cases, physical health conditions like hormonal imbalance, diabetes, menopause, fibromyalgia can also result in a lack of sexual desire in women. For women who experience this sexual problem, a hormone replacement therapy, making out time for a sleep sex, reduced stress and settling every relationship dispute with your partner should get your sex life back on track. If otherwise, see a doctor immediately.
Lack of Arousal
Lack of arousal is another very common sexual problem among most women. While people associate lack of arousal to insufficient vaginal lubrication, doctors believe the situation is quite complicated than that. Physical factors like pains can cause lack of arousal in women during sex, likewise diseases, medications like antidepressants, hormonal imbalance, surgery and fatigue.
To effectively manage the problem of lack of arousal, women can use water-based vaginal fluid to improve arousal. However, make sure you don't use oil-based products that can dissolve condoms, as you may be at risk of becoming pregnant or worse still, contract sexually transmitted disease. For extreme vaginal dryness as a result of decreased estrogen level, hormone replacement therapy may prove help.
Anorgasmia is a sexual dysfunction that affects both males and females. However, this condition is more common among women. This sexual problem makes it difficult for women to experience orgasm. According to research at least one in every three women finds it difficult to reach orgasm during sex.
Medically, diseases like multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and cancer can result in an inability to reach orgasm. Other times, antidepressant-like selective serotonin can also contribute to the inability to reach orgasm.
Just like the name, Vaginismus is a sexual problem among women. This sexual condition causes the pelvic muscles to spasm, resulting in the tightening of the Vagina, involuntarily preventing penetration. While doctors are optimistic that this disease is very common, most women don't seek treatment. Hence there are no actual figures to state exactly the percentage of women suffering from this disease.
According to doctors, vaginismus can be caused by urinary tract infection, yeast infection, trauma, and fear of sex or a past sexual abuse. To treat this sexual dysfunction, your doctor may recommend some kegel exercises to help you relax muscles around your vagina. Also, therapy may prove very effective in treating vaginismus.
Dyspareunia is a female sexual problem that makes sex quite unpleasant and painful. Regrettably, many women feel too embarrassed to open up to their doctors about what they are experiencing. This condition can be caused by Endometriosis, vaginal dryness, urinary tract infection or other psychological issues. To effectively treat this condition your doctors may advise you go for physical and sex therapy to determine what works for you.
