5 Things That Increase A Woman’s Desire To Have Sex

Aug 12, 2020 |

Women’s Health – For some women, sex isn’t all that.

There are many reasons a woman might not be into it, says women’s health specialist Pelin Batur, MD.

Intercourse might hurt. She might have trouble reaching a climax. Or her libido might be taking an extended slumber.

Whatever the reason, no woman has to grin and bear it.

“Your sexual health is important, and you should know you have options,” Dr. Batur says. “Sex drives have a gas pedal and a brake pedal, and the speed is going to vary throughout your life.” 

Here are some common problems that might be holding women back.

Who Is Having More Sex Over Age 50? (You Can)

1. Stress

Stress can do a number on your libido, Dr. Batur says. If you’re being pulled in a million directions — or if a global pandemic has cranked your stress level to 10 — it’s no wonder a roll in the sheets isn’t at the top of your to-do list.

“Ask yourself how vacation sex would be,” she says. “If your sex life is great on vacation, then it’s probably stress, rather than a medical problem.” Finding ways to de-stress can help your sex life bounce back.

2. Pain

“Pain during sex is like a flashing neon sign telling you something’s wrong,” Dr. Batur says. Common causes of painful sex include:

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction: This common condition occurs when muscles in the base of the pelvis don’t relax normally. Women with pelvic dysfunction often have painful intercourse. Physical therapy and biofeedback treatment can help correct the problem.
  • Hormonal changes: Changing levels of estrogen and testosterone can lead to painful sex. Women who are breastfeeding or entering menopause may have hormonal changes that cause vaginal dryness and a burning sensation with intercourse. In some cases, hormonal treatments can correct the problem. A good lube can also come in handy.
  • Other medical causes: There are other possible causes of vaginal pain, including infections and endometriosis. “Depending on the problem, you might want to see a certified menopause specialist or a specialist in sexual health to get to the bottom of it,” Dr. Batur says. Vagina Tester From Walmart – Should You Buy One?
