Low Libido Q & A

What are women’s sexual problems?

Female sexual dysfunction is a term that doctors use to describe problems with sex. You may have a low libido and little interest in sex, or you might not respond to sexual activity the way you used to. 

First, understand that what you’re experiencing is normal. About 4 in 10 women have problems with sex at some point during their lives. 

Sexual problems fall into four groups, which often overlap. These groups are:

  • Lack of desire and arousal problems 
  • Orgasmic problems 
  • Sexual pain 
  • Sexual problems caused by medication or substances

If you’ve lost interest in sex, the team at Prescott Women’s Clinic works with you to diagnose the issue and find a solution to regain your sexual health.

Why do I have low libido?

Low libido is common and affects women of all ages and life stages. For some women, it’s normal to not feel any desire until sexual activity has started. 

Little desire for sex is a common side effect of menopause. In the months and years leading to menopause, your ovaries gradually make less and less estrogen and progesterone. These hormones regulate your period — but they also affect your health and mood.

You may notice these changes over time, or the onset of menopausal symptoms may be sudden, making it more difficult to cope with.

What can be done to treat low libido?

There are numerous ways to address the symptoms of menopause, including low libido. Your practitioner at Prescott Women’s Clinic creates a treatment plan to help you feel like yourself again and regain your intimate wellness. 

A lack of intimacy with your partner can be distressing, so your provider may suggest antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications to ease your distress and help you reconnect with your partner.

If your low libido is due to vaginal dryness, a common complaint during menopause, they discuss bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones replace the estrogen and progesterone your body is no longer making, rebalancing your hormone levels. 

Bioidentical hormones are made from plant-based materials. They’re regarded as more natural alternatives to synthetic hormones.
