Sexual intercourse is very important in a relationship, but sometimes one member of the couple may spend time with another rather than cuddling. If libido deficiency becomes too common, it may not only indicate connection problems, but may even be underlying hormonal dysfunction.
Dr. Ildikó Lőrincz, a gynecologist-endocrinologist at the Center for Gynecology explains the reasons for the decrease in sexual desire.
Early climax, climax
Menopause causes a myriad of changes in the body, and because the levels of female sex hormones are dangerously reduced (first to progesterone and then to estrogen), it unfortunately also affects libido. This is because, in addition to psychic factors, sexual desire is also strongly influenced by hormones, so it is not surprising that climax does have a significant effect on married life. Not only is a decrease or lack of libido a barrier to coexistence, but also vaginal dryness associated with menopause, which can make sex even painful. Although menopause usually occurs around the age of 45-50, dr. According to Ildikó Lőrincz, it is not uncommon for a person to face him in his 30s
„Early menopause is more common than many people think, so it often affects women who are in their early 30s, often wishing to have children, that menopause is at the forefront of their complaints. Fortunately, if the blood test confirms the diagnosis, the symptoms can now be treated with low-hormone drugs.Says the gynecologist.
Nowadays, there are almost no people who do not have at least one person with a struggle with PCOS. The disorder is a gynecological-endocrinological field, as the predominance of male hormones and the shift in the LH / FSH ratio do not result in the formation of a dominant follicle ready to rupture, but instead the formation of more or less cysts in the ovaries. Unfortunately, due to the symptoms (overweight, stronger hairs in the mustache / chin area, hair loss, acne), it severely destroys women’s self-confidence, so sexual desire slows down, which is only exacerbated by the vaginal dryness that often accompanies the problem.
“Prolactin plays a very important role during pregnancy and lactation, but without them it is only present at very low levels. However, there are conditions where it is produced in excessive quantities (eg due to stress or tumor of the pituitary gland), which may cause undue milk loss, infertility or decreased libido. It is treated with stress reduction, medication, and surgery” – says dr. Ildikó Lőrincz, gynecologist endocrinologist at the Gynecology Center.
Estrogen dominance is when the balance of estrogen-progesterone is upset. This can happen if there is too much estrogen, but also if the amount of progesterone is too low. The problem has a wide range of symptoms, so it is often not revealed, but frequent headaches, hydration, obesity, PCOS, vaginal dryness, and decreased sexual desire can be a warning sign. In terms of therapy, it is important to pay attention to the omission of estrogenic drugs / foods (eg soy, BPA), but progesterone supplementation can also help a lot.
Low testosterone levels
Testosterone is best known as the male sex hormone, but it also plays a major role in women — significantly less, of course, than in the stronger sex. However, too low a level leads to a decrease in libido, so in the absence of sexual desire, this problem is also worth suspecting! Scientists say testosterone deficiency is often associated with taking birth control pills, which may explain why women taking the pill don’t want to have sex together.
