The Many Sides to Female Sexual Dysfunction

Does your sex life bring discomfort rather than pleasure? If you answered yes, you’re not alone — 43% of women have experienced some form of sexual dysfunction

When psychological and physical problems arise, many women notice they no longer have a sexual appetite. You may have noticed your desire has changed since you got older and entered menopause, or maybe problems in your relationship have depleted your interest altogether. 

No matter what may be causing the dysfunction, there’s a way to improve it. Nexclin Medicine, located in Roswell, Georgia, provides a variety of treatment options for women looking to improve their sex life.

Understanding sexual dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction happens when you experience recurring pain or lack of satisfaction from sex. You may notice that it occurs in certain situations or in every situation. Symptoms vary from one individual to the next, but some of the most common include:

You only need to address sexual dysfunction if it bothers you and your well-being. Chances are if you’re reading this, it’s something you’re hoping to change. We’ve helped many women improve their sex lives so they can be confident and happy in the bedroom again. 

What causes it?

Physical and psychological changes are usually to blame. Medical conditions like diabetes, kidney failure, and alcoholism are common causes of sexual dysfunction. Many medications may also alter your sex drive, either from the drug itself or from its side effects.

Stress and anxiety can cause many problems, with sex being one of them. When you’re overworked, your body is pushed into survival mode and ramps up your blood flow and heart rate. Your sexual function becomes a lesser necessity. 

Have you noticed your sexual appetite has decreased after menopause? That’s because your body produces less estrogen and progesterone, which may make it harder to get aroused. Lower levels of hormones may also lead to vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy, and other issues that may cause sex to be painful.
