Low Sexual Desire: As if Valentine’s Day Wasn’t Stressful Enough

by | February 11th, 2014

25572194_sWhen you live with low sexual desire, every day, every close touch, can turn into a stressful situation. With Valentine’s Day around the corner – chocolates, romantic dinners, roses and hearts – your stress level could become heightened.

This year, don’t look at Valentine’s Day as a dreaded occurrence, but look at it as the day you realized that there are treatment options for low sexual desire.

Low Sexual Desire Is Not One-Size-Fits-All

Your low sexual desire could be the result of your body’s aging process or changing hormone levels. Dr. J. Kyle Mathews in Dallas is one of a handful of urogynecologists actually board certified in urogynecology (Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery). At his Plano office, he works with women everyday who also live with female sexual dysfunction.

Female sexual dysfunction is a common condition affecting 4 out of 10 women in the United States, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all condition, nor is the treatment. What is consistent? Female sexual dysfunction can affect your relationship as well as your quality of life.

As women age, they may experience female sexual dysfunction (or low sexual desire). It could manifest itself in several ways:

  • A decreased desire to have sex, or no desire at all
  • Difficulty becoming aroused or maintaining arousal
  • The inability to experience an orgasm 
  • Pain during sexual intercourse

The symptoms are something no woman wants to talk about, not even among friends, but these lingering symptoms can have a profound effect on your confidence.

Get the Right Treatment for You

If you experience these symptoms, make time to visit urogynecologist Dr. Mathews. Some causes of low sexual drive could be:

  • Changing hormone levels
  • Current medications 
  • A physical condition like arthritis, previous surgeries, or even headaches

Dr. Mathews, along with his all-female team at Plano Urogynecology Associates, offers a complete evaluation to determine the right treatment for you. The answer could be as easy as lifestyle changes or estrogen or androgen therapy, which may be a topical cream. But you’ll never know until you actually consult with an expert OB-GYN like Dr. Mathews.
