It’s perfectly natural to not want to have sex sometimes. After all, girls do not have sex in their brains all the time, such as their male counterparts. But if you are finding yourself getting disinterested in sex altogether and attaining orgasm seems to be a chore than anything else, then you could be suffering, like many thousands of girls around the world, from female erectile dysfunction. But very low sexual drive can be managed once you understand what is causing it.
- Stress: This is this exaggeration. Sex is proven to alleviate stress, but if you’re worried about work or unpaid bills or your children’ bad grades; you do not really want sex. And if the stress is showing up on your sex life all the time, then you might want to do something about it. What you will need is to calm down. Possibly kick back with a glass of wine and some fantastic old fashioned conversation with your spouse after dinner that will help you relax. Yoga is proven to calm you down too.
- Medication: Many doctors have noticed that when people are on strong medication as part of the therapy find it tricky to get aroused. Medicines such as antihypertensives, antidepressants as well as birth control pills have the potential to interfere with sexual drive, arousal and climax by reducing libido. The easiest way to deal with this problem is to seek advice from your physician so as to determine which medicine or combination of medicines is causing the issue and certainly prior to taking yourself off the offending medicine yourself.
- Relationship Issues: Unresolved relationship issues nearly always make their presence felt between the sheets. Communication difficulties, pent-up anger, confidence problems, a sense of a lack of connection or intimacy can all lead to severe insecurity that manifests itself as low sex drive. Solutions are obvious. Resolve the battle. Open the communication channels, and talk. Together with your psychiatrist, if need be.
- Alcohol, smoking, medications: All injurious to health in several ways, and may have a debilitating effect on your sexual life too. Drugs and smokes can play havoc with the internal workings of the body resulting in, among other things, a decreased interest in sex. This problem can be worked out by cutting back on alcohol and cigarettes and drugs, it has been firmly established, are best given up all together.
