Women sexual dysfonction, does it exist?

What is it ?

In fact, sexual dysfunction in women results in the impossibility of feeling completelyall elements directly or indirectly related to the sexual act in a healthy and pleasant way. These elements are categorized in three stages: the desire phase, the stimulation phase and the orgasm phase. These three phases are at the same time very similar and very distinct. Indeed, they are all related to sexual activity, but they are differentiated by openness and envy, by a feeling and an appreciation, and finally, by fulfillment and satisfaction.



Causes of sexual dysfunction

This problem can be caused by a physical, physiological (mechanical), psychological (mental), or relational disorder.


Physical and physiological disorders:

  • Bad physical shape

  • Taking certain medications

  • The use of drugs or the intake of excess alcohol.

  • Cigarette smoking can sometimes affect sexual desire.

  • Any problem related to the proper functioning of the erogenous zones can have a negative impact.

  • Any hormonal imbalance period such as menopause, pregnancy, breastfeeding, etc.

  • Endometriosis: A uterine lining forms outside the uterus and results in heavy and painful bleeding.

  • Cystitis: an inflammation of the bladder due to a urinary infection.

  • Vaginal dryness: The thinning of the vaginal tissues is caused by a decrease in estrogen levels, causing a lack of hydration and natural vaginal lubrication as well as a loss of elasticity.

  • Vaginitis: an inflammation of the vulva and/or vagina or an abnormal vaginal discharge. The cause is often related to an infection. It is manifested by irritation, itching or painful sensations.

  • Hypothyroidism: a disorder that occurs when there is low or insufficient production of hormones by the thyroid gland.


Other physical causes can occur such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis or muscular dystrophy.



Psychological disorders:

  • Fatigue is one of the most common causes of low libido. Whether it's a lack of sleep, children, chores or long hours at the office, the sexual act is not so appealing late in the evening after a grueling and exhausting day.

  • Anxiety, often related to work, fatigue or lack of time, greatly affects an individual's level of pleasure. It is important not to be affected by stress during foreplay because it can cause vaginal dryness and significantly reduce the amount of pleasure at the time of the act.

  • A childhood trauma can have a major impact on a person's sex life. Sometimes it is trauma associated with aggression or violence. In other cases, it is more a question of education or negative religious thoughts about intimate relationships. These memories or learning received at a very young age can accompany an adult throughout his entire life.

  • Depression is a cause that can be difficult to diagnose. However, in order to support your partner, you should know that a lower libido is a very common symptom of depression.

  • Poor self-esteem is also involved both psychologically and physically.

  • The pressure put on oneself in order to perform well can create the opposite effect and negatively affect the performances during intimate relationships.


Relational disorders:

  • The good harmony in a couple is essential for the everyday life and for intimate intercourse. Little things make all the difference when it comes to the chemistry between two people sharing their lives.

  • Knowing a moment of unfaithfulness on the part of one's partner can result in a complete absence of desire towards one’s partner due to lack of trust and lower self-esteem.

  • The absence or decrease of respectuf communication in terms of compliments and good comments as well as remarks, suggestions or dissatisfactions about desires and/or needs in intimate relationships.

  • The physical appearance of oneself or our partner is a common factor in a decline in libido. At times, it happens to no longer have any physical interest for our partner.

  • Fantasies about other people than our partner can affect our thoughts and expectations as well as our desire or pleasure.

  • Having too high expectations about the performance and frequency of the sexual act can create negative pressure on yourself and your partner.




  • A diminished or completely nonexistent libido.

  • A feeling of indifference or even repulsion for sexual activity.

  • An inability or lack of interest to reach orgasm.

  • Orgasms are made in smaller amounts, shorter in duration and/or have a lower intensity.

  • Pain or discomfort during the sexual act.

  • Discomfort or feeling embarassed with nudity in front of the partner.

  • The inability to imagine fantasies or disinterest in trying new things.
