You may feel as though your lack of success in the bedroom is a reflection of your self worth. Many women blame themselves when their sex drive is lacking, they are unable to orgasm, or they are unable to satisfy their partner, yet there are many common physical reasons that sexual dysfunction might be present in women that cannot necessarily be prevented. Here are some common causes of female sexual dysfunction.
Some health conditions and their treatments can cause low sex drive, vaginal dryness, and other sexual problems. These health conditions include problems such as poor circulation or blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Kidney disease or liver disease can also cause sexual dysfunction. Sexual problems related to these medical conditions can be treated individually as a symptom.
Some medications can cause sexual dysfunction in women. Certain blood pressure medications, cholesterol medications, and antidepressants can all affect your libido and your ability to enjoy sex. While you may need the medications you are taking, if sexual unhappiness is a side effect, there are steps that you can take to correct this.
Women go through several hormonal changes during their lifetime. The most common time for women to have sexual problems is during pre-menopause or during menopause. This type of sexual dysfunction is the result of hormonal deficiencies. It can be corrected with hormone replacement therapy or other treatments specifically for the sexual dysfunction.
