 Biological mechanisms


It is estimated that sexual problems affect half of all women, becoming more common as we get older.

Common sexual problems include:

  • Loss of desire
  • Loss of physical arousal
  • Problems with orgasm
  • Sexual pain, which is particularly common after the menopause

Sexual drive is the biological force that leads us to behave sexually. About 30% of women have no sex drive at all.  Some women may only experience a loss of sexual desire at certain times during their life, for instance during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause or at times of crisis, upheaval or illness in their lives.  But for others low or no sexual drive is constant and causes them distress. The absence of any sexual thoughts, desire or daydreams results in little or no interest to initiate or participate in sexual activity.  This in turn can impact the physical and emotional wellbeing of a woman leading to low self-esteem and even depression.   Low sexual desire can also cause problems within a relationship.

What causes loss of desire?

Our levels of sexual desire change over our lifetime, and are affected by a range of different physical and psychological factors.

Loss of desire can be caused by medical or surgical interventions, hormone disorders and medical conditions such as diabetes or depression. Other causes include changes to contraception method, tiredness, stress, obesity, poor body image, and excessive alcohol or drug use.  A hectic lifestyle can also limit the time we have for sex, eventually leading to loss of desire.

The role of hormones in sexual desire

Oestrogen plays a crucial role in female sexual function, particularly in maintaining healthy genital tissue. Levels fall with age and especially  after the menopause.  This can cause vaginal dryness and painful sex, which in turn can lead to lack of desire.

Testosterone is produced in women by both the adrenal gland and the ovaries and plays an important role in sexual desire and arousal.  Over time, the level of circulating testosterone declines.  This decline can cause a loss of sexual desire.   Ellamuselle contains zinc which is needed for the production of testosterone.

“I had been on the pill for ten years when I started to lose interest in sex.  At first I just put it down to having a busy job and stress, but when work calmed down my interest in sex still didn’t come back.   My GP suggested that it was probably a side effect of being on the pill and that if I stopped taking it, over time, my sex drive would come back.  Six months later it still hadn’t returned.  That’s when I started taking Ellasmuselle.  After two months of taking Ellamuselle,  my interest in sex returned, I started to enjoy it, and my relationship with my partner improved dramatically.”

“When I hit 50,  I found out that I was both diabetic and menopausal.   My sex life became nonexistent and after  two years I decided to do something about it. Since taking Ellamuselle I feel like a new woman.  Sex with my partner is now better than before I hit the menopause.   I also have much more energy and live a much healthier lifestyle.  This little sachet has transformed my life for the better.”
