A very common occurrence among women is sexual dysfunction. It is not talking about single unsuccessful cases in bed at all, but about a condition that is permanent and long-term, which can cover many problems, from low libido to a complete reluctance to have sex and, as a result, refusal from it. This problem is quite serious and can depend on various factors, both physiological and physical. Before choosing the necessary therapy, it is necessary to highlight one or more possible causes of sexual dysfunction.
Major Areas of Female Sexual Disorder
The following areas of sexual dysfunction in women are distinguished:
- sexual pain is painful intercourse or pain that a woman experiences after it;
- lack of sex drive or weak sexual desire (low libido);
- lack of orgasm or painful orgasm;
- lack of sexual arousal before and during sex;
If a woman has no orgasm completely, or she rarely gets it, or feels pain during orgasm, this is not normal. The problem may lie in the following points: a decrease in erogenous sensitivity, a psychological barrier, incorrect behavior of a partner, a lack of certain hormones in the body that are responsible for sexual behavior and other reasons.
The realization of an orgasm in a woman can be blocked by many factors, but the degree of the combined influence of these factors depends on other multiple conditions, such as a woman’s sexual education, her age and the age of her partner, sexual experience, personality type and character, gender structure, conditions of realization, location on body of erogenous zones and the like.
In any case, no matter what the causes of a woman’s sexual dysfunction are, the right treatment can increase libido and revitalize sex life.
Causes of female sexual dysfunction
As a rule, a woman’s sexual dysfunction is caused by one or more reasons, the main ones of which are:
- upbringing, when a woman from her youth is deposited in her head that the main function of a woman in her sexual life is to become pregnant and give birth to children;
- male behavior during intercourse: insufficient attention, wrong approach, cynicism or ridicule;
- hormonal changes that may be associated with pregnancy, childbirth or any disease;
- being tired or stressed;
- a decrease in the level of the hormone estrogen during menopause;
- decreased libido as a result of taking medications;
- alcohol abuse;
- common diseases such as diabetes mellitus, inflammation, appendages, hypertension and others.

Treatment of sexual dysfunction disorders in women
A woman, unlike a man, needs to learn to have an orgasm. To begin with, it is worth learning how to get an orgasm on your own, without the help of a man, through self-gratification, and then, gradually expand the range of arousal with a partner. Also, you should not strongly desire to have an orgasm, since constant thoughts about it can inhibit its occurrence. In 90% of cases, frigidity in a woman is only conditional, and consultations with a sexologist help to cope with such a problem.
Treatment of sexual dysfunction can also be medication and hardware – the doctor, if necessary, adjusts the level of hormones and eliminates inflammatory and female diseases. Ideally, treatment for sexual dysfunction disorder should be comprehensive and involve the participation of a sexologist, gynecologist, endocrinologist and, of course, the partner himself. If sexual dysfunction has arisen against the background of stress, lack of desire or inexperience of a partner, then face-to-face consultations with a psychotherapist and sexologist will help solve this problem.
