    When I signed into msn messenger live to webcam chat with my son and his fiance just now, this popped up in a news window... I've run into one or two in my life that didn't really have a great sex drive. I found the reading here informative...


    Low Sex Drive in Women


    This comprehensive overview covers diagnosis, treatment of this common problem.

    * Female orgasm: Why can't I climax during sexual intercourse?


    Definition

    A woman's sexual desires naturally fluctuate over the years. Highs and lows commonly coincide with the beginning or end of a relationship or with major life changes, such as pregnancy, menopause or illness. However, if you are bothered by a low sex drive or decreased sex drive, there are lifestyle changes and sex techniques that may put you in the mood more often. Some medications offer promise as well.

    Even researchers disagree about the best measure of low sex drive in women. After all, perfectly normal women vary greatly in their desire for sex and their views about the optimal amount of sex. Besides, the number of times you have sex each week isn't necessarily a good measure of your libido; women skip sex for many reasons that have nothing to do with desire, including fatigue, stress, poor body image or lack of emotional intimacy.

    So, what exactly is low sex drive in women? In medical terms, you have hypoactive sexual desire disorder if you have a persistent or recurrent lack of interest in sex that causes you personal distress. But you don't have to meet this medical definition to seek help. If you aren't as interested in sex as you'd like to be, talk to your doctor.

    Symptoms

    Obviously, the major symptom of low sex drive in women is a low or absent desire for sex. According to some studies, more than 40 percent of women complain of low sexual desire at some point. The percentage is smaller—5 percent to 15 percent—if you only count women with ongoing problems.

    Still, researchers acknowledge that it's difficult to measure what's normal and what's not. If you want to have sex less often than your partner does, neither one of you is necessarily outside the norm for people at your stage in life—although your differences may cause distress. Similarly, even if your sex drive is weaker than it once was, your relationship may be stronger than ever. Bottom line: There is no magic number to define low sex drive. It varies from woman to woman.

    Causes

    A woman's desire for sex is based on a complex interaction of many components affecting intimacy, including physical well-being, emotional well-being, experiences, beliefs, lifestyle and current relationship. If you're experiencing problems in any of these areas, it can affect your sexual desire. In other words, there are dozens of reasons you may not be interested in sex:

    Marriage is the number one cause of diminishing sex drive in both men and women.

    And those dumb ass homosexuals think that is the most important thing in the world for them right now, pretty funny. I have never had a desire to get married, I've seen what it does to people and don't really care for that to happen to me. That and I haven't met anyone that I wanted to spend that much time with.:cool:

    Yeah, that's why I was always of the opinion that rightists should support gay marriage as an effective deterrent to sodomy.

    Why anyone with a low sex drive would worry about making it higher is beyond me. Society is so focused on sex these days people feel that inadequate just because they don't like it that they have to take meds to increase what is naturally occurring in their bodies ... and straight people wonder why I prefer the company of gay people.

    Well, if rightists hated gay sex, they'd support gay marriage, because nothing kills a sex life like marriage.
