Did you know that the female sexual response changes throughout a woman’s lifetime? It’s true. When a woman is young and in love, her sexual response is drive in great degree by desire, meaning she is much more likely to seek out and be receptive to sexual activity.
So what causes this change in sexual response? It’s mostly due to hormonal and physiological changes that take place as a woman ages. And while a change in sexual response isn’t a problem in and of itself, it can often lead to worry for the partner. Men may think that their partner’s feelings for them have diminished. That’s why it’s so important to keep the lines of communication open and educate your mate about the changes you’re experiencing.
There are times, though, when lack of desire, arousal or orgasm is a serious issue that needs to be addressed by your physician. In fact, this is probably more common than you think, as an estimated 44 percent of women experience sexual dysfunction at some point in their lives. The good news is that there are low-risk, non-complicated hormonal and non-hormonal options for women that can bring back that loving feeling. Watch for an upcoming blog, which will discuss these options in greater detail.
