Physical causes of low female libido

The physical causes of low female libido can be as a result of any of the following:

  • Medical causes: diseases like arthritis, cancer, diabetes, high-blood pressure and some neurological diseases can affect the female libido.
  • Sexual issues: not being able to orgasm or pain during intercourse can greatly affect the desire for sex and therefore the libido.
  • Prescription medication: medications like anti-depressants and anti-seizure drugs can lead to low libido.
  • Alcohol and recreational drugs: over and long-term use can dampen the sex drive.
  • General fatigue: Women who are the carers of the family, be it children or aging parents, might not have the energy for sex.

Menopause and libido

Hormonal factors can also affect the libido. Menopause causes a drop in estrogen and testosterone which can lead to a decrease in sex drive. When woman are pregnant or breast feeding they will also experience hormonal changes that can decrease the sex drive. Added to this is that pregnant and breast-feeding woman are often exhausted by carrying or looking after babies.

Psychological causes of low female libido

Low libido can also come from some psychological factors. Anxiety and depression, stress, body-image issues, self-esteem issues or past sexual abuse can factor into low libido. Then, there are relationship issues. Women, generally, like to feel a level of emotional closeness before engaging in sex. If a woman is not feeling connected to, is fighting with, is not confident enough to communicate preferences with, or does not trust her partner, it is likely that her libido will be affected.
