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.
