It is estimated that up to 40% of women suffer from low libido and simply cannot gain the drive to want sexual activity fully. You need not live with this long term – women can quickly restore their sexual confidence with a choice of powerful female libido treatments.
Sometimes referred to as female sexual dysfunction, low libido is a surprisingly common problem that varies in severity. In some instances, women do not desire sex as they perhaps used to, whilst in other cases the desire may be present but the body does not respond sufficiently to arousal.
This can be caused by a number of psychological factors or by an underlying illness. In either instance, the consequence can have a significant impact on a woman’s feeling of confidence in her body.
Whilst it is true that some people can benefit from counselling or lifestyle changes to improve libido, a pharmaceutical treatment can also sometimes help to regain satisfactory sex lives and start the process of renewed confidence.
A common medical solution for low libido is the Intrinsa patch, which has been specifically developed to treat low libido in women. This patch contains the active ingredient testosterone, which is naturally present in women and produced in small amounts by the female ovaries. The patch is placed on the lower abdomen and changed every three to four days.
Like male arousal, female arousal depends on two things – good blood flow and hormone production. As a result, low libido can have a physical cause in underlying medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, and the menopause is a very common cause of loss of libido. It is also possible that decreased sex drive is the result of certain medications prescribed for wholly unrelated health issues. Sometimes, the blood flow to the clitoris, which facilitates arousal, may be impaired.
In addition, psychological factors such as stress or anxiety can lead to a decreased sex drive. As with male erectile dysfunction, this leads many women to find themselves in a cycle – their loss of libido is caused by anxiety, they grow more anxious about sexual performance, and therefore the problem continues and can become more severe. A medical solution for low libido can help to break this cycle.
The symptoms of low libido in women vary from patient to patient, but commonly include:
