For women, there are many factors involved in having great sex. Many women over forty have found they now have a lower libido than the years before.
For these otherwise healthy women, it is frustrating to find that they no longer enjoy sex or don’t want sex as often as they used to. With science, there are many interventions that can now be taken to once again have a better sex life.
Low testosterone in women can play a factor in a diminishing sex life. A woman’s hormone levels are delicately balanced and any change in them can greatly change a woman. Women who reach menopause experience a decrease in these hormones and are more likely to experience a decrease in their sexual appetite.
Luckily, studies show that women who are able to get their hormone levels stabilized have an improved sexual response. Science can help with things such as testosterone gel, libido-boosting herbs and birth control. Some contraceptives have hormones in them that help balance the hormones.
You may also find you are distracted during sex. This can make sex boring and chore like. Women’s brains are naturally more active than a man’s brain, even during sex.
You may find that you are going over your to-do list in your head while your partner is trying to arouse you. This is partially due to lower levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine creates the desire to go after a goal.
In the case of sex, it would be the orgasm as the reward. Low levels of dopamine can be caused by chronic stress or medical conditions. This can distract you during sex and prohibit you from having great sex.
One key to having better sex for a woman is actually achieving orgasm. Many women who can’t reach orgasm blame the problem on a psychological problem, but often the reasons are physical.
Poor blood flow to the genitals can make it harder to have an orgasm and this may be due to cardiovascular disease. Also declining hormones and smoking can reduce the blood flow to the genitals.
For a great sex life, it is important to make sure you are healthy. All-over general good health will be the greatest improvement to a better sex life.
