Low Sex Drive? How to Get Your Groove Back!

If you’ve been having trouble getting in the mood lately, don’t panic. This does not mean you’re suddenly no longer attracted to your partner. There are many other factors that could be causing your low libido.

What causes low sex drive in women?

Many women with hormonal imbalances experience a decrease in sex drive and orgasm. As women age testosterone is the first hormone to decline. Birth control can also result in a decline in testosterone. Low levels of testosterone can lead to low libido. Furthermore, low estrogen levels can cause vaginal dryness and pain with intercourse, which can also decrease sex drive.

There’s a chance your low libido is the result of your hectic schedule. You may feel overwhelmed with your home and work responsibilities and don’t think you have time for sex.

What can I do to boost my libido?

If your doctor determines your low sex drive is being caused by a hormonal imbalance, you may want to consider hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

If vaginal dryness is keeping you from getting in the mood, perhaps vaginal rejuvenation is right for you. Vaginal rejuvenation is a painless procedure during which a laser passes through the wall of the vagina to stimulate collagen formation and revitalize vaginal tissue. This can result in better vaginal lubrication and thus a better sex life.

If your to-do list is to blame, get more intentional about setting aside time for intimacy with your partner. Plan weekly date nights and occasional budget-friendly trips. And don’t be afraid to try something new in the bedroom. You and your partner may also need to see a counselor to help you both make your relationship a priority.
