Loss of sexual desire is one of the most common sexual dysfunction syndromes that usually occur frequently in women than in men. More information and details are available on female loss of sexual desire, but it is very hard to decide whether sexual desire is an abnormal symptom or a disease. If the word “sexual desire” is examined very closely, you can derive two important conclusions, that either, loss of sexual desire could be just a thought or it could even be a firm feeling! However, it is still very much confusing, as a woman with no sexual desire could perform very well during intercourse, once she gets herself engaged and integrated into the sexual activity.
Though there are plenty of research reports available on the topic of loss of “sexual desire”, it is still poorly understood and chronicled. A number of causes lead to loss of sexual desire both in men and in women. Some of these reasons and causes are:
Organic Causes: Research findings suggest us that testosterone plays a major role in women’ sexual desire, although women need very minute quantities than in men. Certain drugs, medical treatments could lead to loss in sexual desire; contraceptive drugs, estrogen treatment, anti- androgen substances, sedatives, narcotics, antidepressants and stimulants could cause loss of sexual desire. Many types of illnesses and syndromes like psychiatric and neurotic disorders, stress and anxiety, urological and reproductive disorders, and finally gynecological disorders also cause loss of sexual desire in women.
Psychological Causes: Just like men, women also undergo several psychological changes that finally lead to loss of sexual desire. Even women will have many roles in their lives- that of a mother, professional, daughter, friend, mentor and a worker; but the role of a woman as a lover will diminish gradually as she undergoes pregnancy and childbirth, and her role as a lover is sometimes completely lost soon after her motherhood.
Sexual desire seems to create many confusions and hassles in a couple’s life; in many cases, the loss of sexual desire may even lead to marital discord and divorce. However, to stop and prevent such undesirable events from happening, people may need to understand more about processes that lead to loss of sexual desire and the ways and means to mitigate the problem. To set right the worsening situation, both husband and wife may need to sit down together and create a plan to erase the feeling of loss of sexual desire.
Here are some ideas and suggestions for both men and women to increase and pep-up sexual desire:
Women must anticipate good feeling and positive vibrations so that they can participate actively in sex.
Engaging in sexual activity is an intimate act that involves active participation by both men and women; once you start nurturing the feeling of well-being and passion soon after sex, it is possible to enhance sexual desire slowly and gradually.
Never ever equate sexual desire with the actual act of copulation and intercourse, rather, treat it as a tool to immerse in the pool of bliss and physical well-being!
Facilitate sexual desire with an interactive and intimate sexual relationship.
Use the sense of physical touch before actually engaging in the sexual act.
Sexual desire is a heavenly feeling that needs proper cultivation, nourishment and nursing by women to gain positive feeling, mental peace, marital bliss and sexual gratification. Without proper sexual desire, one can never expect normal traits of physical intimacy and mental equilibrium.
