Low Sex Drive in Women

Updated on May 9, 2011

Have you lost interest in sex?

Many women go through a loss of interest in sex at some point in their life. The problem is that there is usually not any one cause for low libido. Many factors can be at play here. As far as health goes, some of the contributing factors are diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, kidney disease and arthritis.

There are emotional factors, such as stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and past physical or sexual abuse.

Reasons Why It is Important to Find a Solution

Whatever issues you have right now, you also need to consider the fact that your partner is suffering at this moment as well.

The thing is, as I well know, that if you are not having sex with your man, he is probably thinking that you are having sex with someone else. This may make little sense to you since you have no interest in sex at this time, but that is exactly what he is thinking.

I say this, because I went through it myself. Loss of sex drive that is. No interest in sex, whatsoever. No attraction to my man. It happened when I had my children and it almost cost me my marriage. My husband was certain that I was carrying on an affair outside of our marriage because I had absolutely no interest in sex.

You shouldn't be embarrassed to seek help and do it sooner rather than later. 

Symptoms and Complications of Female Sexual Dysfunction

Women who do not enjoy satisfying sexual experiences with their partners often report the following:

  • lack of sexual desire (low libido)
  • inability to attain an orgasm
  • experience pain or other distress on penile penetration
  • an inability to fantasize about sexual situations
  • indifference to, or repulsion by, having sex
  • feelings of fear or anger towards their partners

Most often, any of these responses have psychological complications. Whether the symptoms are due to physical factors, such as menopause, or have their origins in more deep-seated psychological triggers, many women are likely to feel inadequate or dysfunctional. They blame themselves for not being sexually responsive, cannot explain to their partners about how they feel, and experience low self-esteem as a result.

      People run into problems just getting older. It takes work to maintain a relationship and even physical conditioning can help.

      Great hub. Some other factors that cause low libido include, many medications (such as amphetamines or ant-depressants). The only way to be certain if it a physical factor, psychological, or neurological factor is to see a doctor.
