What are s*xual problems?
A s*xual problem is something that keeps s*x from being satisfying or positive.
Most women have symptoms of a s*xual problem at one time or another. For some women, the symptoms are ongoing. But your symptoms are only a s*xual problem if they bother you or cause problems in your relationship.
There is no “normal” level of s*xual response because it’s different for every woman. You may also find that what is normal at one stage of your life changes at another stage. For example, it’s common for an exhausted mother of a baby to have little interest in s*x. And it’s common for both women and men to have lower s*x drives as they age.
What are some causes of s*xual problems in women?
Female se*uality is complicated. At its core is a need for closeness and intimacy. Women also have physical needs. When there is a problem in either the emotional or physical part of your life, you can have s*xual problems.
Some common causes include:
Emotional causes, such as stress, relationship problems, depression or anxiety, a memory of s*xual abuse or r*pe, and unhappiness with your body
Physical causes, such as hormone problems, pain from an injury or other problem, and certain conditions such as diabetes or arthritis
Aging, which can cause changes in the v**ina, such as dryness
Taking certain medicines. Some medicines for depression, blood pressure, and diabetes may cause s*xual problems.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of s*xual problems can include:
Having less desire for s*x
Having trouble feeling aroused
Not being able to have an climax
Having pain during s*x
How are s*xual problems in women diagnosed?
You may notice a change in desire or s*xual satisfaction. When this happens, it helps to look at what is and isn’t working in your body and in your life. For example:
Are you ill, or do you take a medicine that can lower your s*xual desire or response?
Are you stressed or often very tired?
Do you have a caring, respectful connection with a partner?
Do you and your partner have the time and privacy to relax together?
Do you have painful memories about s*x or intimacy?
Your doctor can help you decide what to do. He or she will ask questions, do a physical exam, and talk to you about possible causes.
It can be hard or embarrassing to talk to your doctor about this. Sometimes it helps to write out what you want to say before you go. For example, you could say something like, “For the past few months, I haven’t enjoyed s*x as much as I used to.” Or you could say, “Ever since I started taking that medicine, I haven’t felt like having s*x.”
