Women suffering from decreased libidos: the why and what to do about it

An increasing number of women are coming forth and reaching out for help about decreasing libido struggles. In past years, this was a hush-hush kind of topic. Now, women are frustrated and confused as to why this is happening to their bodies.

Studies have been conducted to attempt to address the reasons for decreased libidos. While researchers have had no luck with a diagnosis, they have determined that the “causes can range from the biological to the psychological and even social.”

One such study took a look at stresses of everyday life, which include working, taking care of the family and household and worrying about finances. According to General Practitioner Dr. Sarah Brewer, “If you’re stressed, you produce the hormone cortisol, which in turn leads to production of another hormone called prolactin, the ‘celibacy hormone’.”

Okay, that makes sense, but what about women who live normal, carefree lives? Why has their sex drive diminished? Another study looked at the low levels of the hormone testosterone found in women. Testosterone is not just a hormone found in men, although that is a common misconception, and it can help a woman’s body to regulate energy, mood and libido.

Testosterone naturally increases in a woman’s body during intercourse. If the woman is experiencing a low sex drive, it can be very hard to replenish the hormone, bringing the libido back to life. In addition, when women begin to age, a decrease in hormone levels is part of the process. Doctors have attempted to create testosterone replacement patches, but have had little or no success, as the side effects just add to the overall problem.

Women at any age can be affected by decreased libidos and some medications are raising red flags. Certain contraceptive pills, anti-depressants and painkillers are just a few types of medications that can have a negative effect on the libido.

It is also no surprise that menopause aka “the change” is a leading factor of having little or no desire for intimacy. Menopause decreases the body’s ability of producing enough estrogen and testosterone. Menopause can also cause vaginal tissue to dry, making intercourse very painful.

Professor John Studd, who is also a gynecologist that specializes in treating women with libido problems, believes that “lack of libido can be treated, but there is still a common perception that this is not a serious issue – and until more people start to take it seriously, women will continue to suffer.”

More women are now doing their own research on this topic. They have found natural remedies to overcome the heavy burden of weakened intercourse desire. This is where the work of Women’s Intimate Solutions comes in.

Women’s Sexual Health & Female Rejunivation

Discussing sexual health, especially that of women, has been somewhat taboo over the years. An important topic of conversation, the more recent discussions and focus on this subject is long overdue. Although speaking about sex and sexual health is not always the easiest conversation to have, whether it is with your friends or even doctor, it is an essential topic about which to be well educated.

A recent study, conducted by Sexual Health Rankings™, reports “for the first time, a full picture of sexual health in the United States,” according to a press release from PR Newswire. This study “is the most comprehensive measure of Americans’ sexual health ever developed, and the first state-by-state comparison of overall sexual health.”

The idea behind Sexual Health Rankings™ is based on the definition of sexual health as the World Health Organization defines it. “It emphasizes wellness, and encompasses human rights, sexual expression and identity, and sexual pleasure.”

“Sexual health is an essential part of health—each individual person’s health, and the health of society as a whole,” says Sexual Health Rankings™ Director Martin Downs, MPH. “Sexual health relates to many different parts of the body, aspects of life, and areas of society, in ways that aren’t always obvious.”

Based on 26 indicators, the study, Sexual Health Rankings™ used available data to rank the states. Although there was very little information that people actually want to know about sexual health, especially the positive aspects.

The Top Five Sexually Healthy States
1. Vermont
2. Connecticut
3. New Hampshire
4. New Jersey
5. Massachusetts

As a women who has endured the hardships of being a breast cancer survivor, sexual health is something that is very important to me. Not only has ageing played a role in my sexual health, but the side effects of treatment have also had an effect. Fortunately, I have found herbal products that have helped lessen the negative effects. One of my favorite products is the Female Rejuvenation Formula.

This formula is to be taken internally and is meant to help rehydrate women’s mucosal tissues. This includes eyes, mouth, and entire digestive system from top to bottom, along with the tissues of the reproductive system.

How to Use: You should see improvement after 1-2 weeks of either ¼ tsp 2-5 times a day or a dropper full under the tongue in the morning.
