Sexual Problems & Low Libido

Low libido or sex drive is very common in women and there can be many different reasons for this. Libido in women is very easily affected by stress and anxiety, as well as general illnesses and hormonal issues.

Some of the causes of low libido/sexual problems

The pelvic floor tissues are very sensitive to oestrogen and testosterone, and low libido can be very closely related to times of low hormone production such as after childbirth and in pre and post menopause. Not only is there no desire to have sex but any attempt at intercourse can be painful due to lack of elasticity of the tissues and poor arousal. Orgasm may not occur or is difficult and unfulfilling.

There are many reasons for low libido some of which are listed below:

  • Oestrogen deficiency.
  • Testosterone deficiency.
  • Following the birth of a baby.
  • Diabetes.
  • Prescribed medications.
  • Painful sexual intercourse.
  • Depression.
  • Stress.
