Our expert says:
There are several factors that could contribute to women experiencing a low sexual desire. Stress, aging, hormonal changes, physical well-being, emotional well-being, experiences, lifestyle – just to name a few. A quick-fix such as the simplicity of a pil is not always the solutions when several factors are contributing. I will suggest that you do make an appointment with your Gynecologist to have some tests done to see if your hormonal balances needs some intervention or if medication that you are currently on needs some adjustment. Furthermore it often helps to review your current lifestyle and identify ways that you could bring some changes in order to encourage a happier and lighter feeling – some exercises, eating patterns, stress release methods, etc. Low libido or low sexual desire is often addressed and relieved when intimacy without sexual expectations are increased and are paid more attention in your relationship – the emotional closeness. Low sexual desire is in most cases a combination of physical and emotional factors and need to be addressed on both levels. I furthermore recommend that you seek the assistance of a sexologist to assist you with the lifestyle and relationship factors that could be adjusted to increase your sexual desire.
