Have you noticed a loss of sexual desire to the point it’s causing problems in your relationship or affecting the way you feel about yourself? Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) is more than just a low sex drive in women, it’s a medical condition defined as a lack of interest in sex. HSDD can cause relationship problems as well as personal distress and currently affects up to 12% of women, which is as many as 8 million right here in the United States.
There are several reasons for a loss in sexual desire in women:
- Medications – If you’ve noticed a sudden loss of sexual desire and recently started a new medication you may want to talk to your doctor because it may be lowering your sexual drive.
- Medical issues – There are several medication conditions that can have an effect on our sex drive such as depression and thyroid disorders.
- Stress – Of course stress can negatively affect the sex drive in women. If we allow stress at work to negatively affect us, it can be a contributing factor to your lower sexual drive.
- Testosterone – The level of testosterone tend to decline until menopause, which may cause them to drop suddenly.
- Self-esteem – Loss of self-esteem can be related to your loss of sexual desire.
- Relationship – We may not want to admit it, but our relationship and feelings bottled up for our partner can also be a contributing factor.
As you already know sex is an important part of maintaining a healthy relationship for many reasons and your partners feelings should be at the top of the list. Avoiding sex leads to hurt feelings and can eventually start to cause problems because you don’t seem interested in our partner anymore. I guess the best way to understand what your loss of sexual desire does to your spouse is to put yourself in their shoes. How would you feel if the situation were to be reversed and your husband didn’t want to have sex with you without any explanation. What would you do if it continued without any explanation?
I don’t know about you, but I would be hurt, feel as if my partner isn’t attracted to me any longer, and without explanation over time I would become upset. Sex is crucial to our relationship, it connects us with our partner and makes us feel things we can only feel while in bed with the person we love. Plus, there are tons of excellent health benefits – relieves stress, exercise, increases oxytocin, live longer, and many more health benefits.
Talk to your partner – First, talk to your partner so they know what you are feeling and that you want to get help to find out what is going on. It might not fix things completely, but it will help them understand that it could be something deeper than an attraction issues. Hopefully, they’ll be supportive of your decision to get help.
Consider life changes – First I would start by considering any recent changes in your life that may have caused you to lose your desire for sex such as stress at work, loss of self-esteem, menopause, medication, depression, etc.
Get help – Talk to your doctor or find one that fully understands hypoactive sexual desire disorder. You can also choose to take part in a clinical trial such as ReconnectStudy.com.
