As much as you might know of ways to steam up the situation with your partner in bed, you might not understand why your woman doesn’t want to have sex sometimes. There could be many reasons that you might not be aware of, but as a partner, you must take some interest in getting to know your woman better. As a woman too, you should be curious to know if you are having trouble reaching a climax or if your libido is taking an extended time off. Here are some reasons why women don’t enjoy sex at times.
– Stress: The number one cause of a low sex drive. Stress can really get hard on your libido. If you’re being pulled in a million directions or if your stress level is high generally, it will take a toll on your sex life with your partner. Finding ways to de-stress can help your sex life bounce back. Take a break from your routine, eat healthily, get some rest and spend quality time with your partner.
– Pain: Pain during sex is how your body tells something is wrong with it. There can be many causes of painful sex. Pelvic floor dysfunction is when muscles in the base of the pelvis don’t relax normally. Changing levels of estrogen and testosterone can lead to painful sex for women too. Also, if you’re breastfeeding or entering menopause, you might have hormonal changes that can cause vaginal dryness that makes sex painful. You need to consult a gynecologist as soon as you realize that sex is getting painful for you instead of avoiding it.
– Psychological causes: Sometimes, depression and underlying anxiety can get in the way of your sex drive. Issues where the relationship is in trouble or a history of sexual trauma can affect your interest in physical intimacy with your partner. In such cases, a mental health professional can help you work through the underlying difficulties.
– Low libido: At times, a sluggish sex drive is a matter of mindset. For many women, initiating sex might not be that interesting. But once they get on into it, they realize that it’s fun. Sometimes, you just need to go with the low and let your brain catch up. Some women, on the other hand, have a low sex drive in the absence of any other underlying problem. This is called hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). Your doctor should be in charge to prescribe medications that can help put you in the mood to enjoy some intimate time with your partner.
