Understanding a Woman’s Low Libido

Women’s Health: Understanding the Low Libido Phenomenon

A woman’s libido is not usually talked about freely, yet it is something that should be discussed. It is estimated that around 43 percent of women have experienced some type of sexual dysfunction in their lives. This is due to low libido, and the following will enlighten you on the subject.

The Contributors of Libido Malfunction

The following are just a few reasons a woman may not desire sexual intimacy:

Perhaps one of the most common issues that affect a woman’s sex drive is hormonal imbalances. The balance between hormones like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA-S can affect a woman’s libido. There are many things that could have a negative effect on this balance like genes, environmental changes, and even lifestyle choices. Thankfully, LifeBoost’s Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy aims to rebalance irregular hormonal fluctuations.

The Big M

Of course, menopause could change the way hormones are produced, which could affect a woman’s desire to have sex. Keep in mind that some women go through vaginal dryness, which can make sex painful and even less desirable.

Prescription Medicine

There are several types of prescriptions out there that could have side effects, including the loss of sex drive. This could include medications for birth control or even some anti-depressants. It is best to check with a doctor to make sure you are not taking a prescription that could have a negative effect on you.


Some conditions could negatively affect a woman’s hormonal balance among other functions. This could throw a woman off-kilter, and low libido could simply be one of the outcomes of the disease. Some of the most common afflictions that could lead to low sex drive include diabetes and heart disease.


Alcohol is a tricky thing. Some women drink it and feel uninhibited, which ultimately leads to a stronger sex drive. On the other side of the coin, some women experience depression or reduced sensitivity. This could lead to a decreased sense of desire.

Gas & Boating

Bloating and overall stomach-related afflictions could definitely affect a woman’s desire to have sex. It is not hard to imagine that stomach problems could make a woman feel less sexy. It should be noted that a bad digestive system could lead to bad libido because sex drive depends on good nutrition, which is less likely if you are not digesting food properly. Talk to your doctor if you have digestion issues consistently.


Anxiety, depression, and stress can make it hard for a woman to feel sexy or even worry about having sex. Stress, in particular, could really hurt a woman’s libido. Stress releases cortisol, which is a neurotransmitter that puts the body into survivor mode by increasing strength and agility. It does not consider sex, so your drive might be depleted.

Love Issues

A bad relationship could make you feel less desirable or make you feel bad about yourself. This could negatively affect your libido, which is understandable.

Problems during intercourse could mean that age has made your clitoris a little less sensitive, but LifeBoost’s O-Shot can help re-stimulate that area by injecting new cells to jump start new cell growth, which has helped many patients achieve better orgasms.

Our medical specialists at LifeBoost can explore the options of BHRT and the O-Shot to help you regain control of your sexual life. Call today for a no obligation consultation.
