Top 10 Reasons Women Don't Want Sex

By Smarty More Blogs by This Author

There are a wide variety of reasons why a� woman might not� want to have sex. The following is a list of the top ten reasons women cite, in no particular order.

Birth Control

The effective use of birth control in the form of injections, oral contraceptives, or the patch, all involve certain hormones. These hormones often times can interfere and decrease overall desire and libido. If you think this may be the case, visit your physician to see if your contraceptive can be changed (there is a vast array of options) or look into natural methods for libido enhancement.

Lack of Sleep

As fun as sex can be, nobody really wants sex when they are exhausted. Once a relationship has been established, the importance of sleep can slowly make its way up to the top of the list. If your schedule is over filled, you should make time for sex. This may sound boring and predictable, but it may serve as a template to remind yourself of how enjoyable sex can be.

Breastfeeding

Women that are breastfeeding typically have lowered libidos. This is due to a hormone known as prolactin, produced by the body to facilitate the process of lactating that facilitates breastfeeding. In this case, there are natural and safe methods to enhance your libido.

Relationship Difficulties

Relationships are challenging. There will always be disagreements, time restraints, jealous bouts, conflicts, and stress. However, it is the manner in which you resolve these problems that really matters. Remind yourself that you love your partner, discuss and solve this issue, and maybe some make up sex can be arranged.

Body Image

Typically, if women view themselves as unattractive or overweight, this causes an overall decrease in libido. Remind yourself that nobody is perfect, and that imperfection in itself is beautiful.

Stress

Stress can be a major hindrance to libido. This stress can be derived from work, school, family, finances, etc. The point is, if you are stressing over certain issues, you are probably not thinking about wanting sex. Talk with your partner about these stressful factors and see if you can't find a way to solve them together.

Antidepressant Use

Antidepressants are correlated with an overall decrease and desire in certain individuals. You should discuss this side effect with your physician.

Intimacy Fears

The fear of intimacy in a relationship can also serve to hinder sexual desire. Sex brings a new level of intimacy to the relationship, which can sometimes be difficult to handle. Discuss your concerns with your partner, communication is key.

Lack of Communication

It is strongly correlated that women who do not feel appreciated or understood have lower overall libidos. There are also correlations with women not wanting sex because they are failing to orgasm or just not enjoying it. Communicate with your partner about your sexual desires, you never know, they may make them come true.

Free Testosterone Levels

It has been shown that some women have naturally lower levels of free testosterone in comparison to total testosterone. This lowered presence can lead to an overall decrease in desire and libido.

There are many reasons why women may not want sex. However, most women do want and enjoy sex. Educate yourself on the ways to naturally enhance your libido, and love your body. Sexual health is important.
