The American Medical Association has estimated that several million US women suffer from a female sexual arousal disorder , though arousal is not at all synonymous with desire, so this finding is of limited relevance to the discussion of libido.  Some specialists claim that women may experience low libido due to some hormonal abnormalities such as lack of luteinising hormone or androgenic hormones, although these theories are still controversial. Also, women commonly lack sexual desire in the period immediately after giving birth . Moreover, any condition affecting the genital area can make women reject the idea of having intercourse . It has been estimated that half of women experience different health problems in the area of the vagina and vulva , such as thinning, tightening, dryness or atrophy . Frustration may appear as a result of these issues and because many of them lead to painful sexual intercourse, many women prefer not having sex at all. Surgery or major health conditions such as arthritis , cancer , diabetes , high blood pressure , coronary artery disease or infertility may have the same effect in women.  Surgery that affects the hormonal levels in women include oophrectomies .
Hello, I’m a 28 year old female, I’m married to my boyfriend of 7 years and I did not have any other sexual partners before him. Initially when we tried to have sex he couldn’t penetrate my vagina. Since then we’ve managed to have penetrative sex, but it is uncomfortable for me at best and painful at worst, no matter how much foreplay we do. Even sex after an orgasm is the same. I don’t seem to make natural lubricant, and artificial lubes seem to only help, not fix the problem. The only way I’ve found to have pain free sex is to numb my vagina before hand with lignocaine gel. Sex itself is a “nothing” experience, I can feel him inside me but there are no pleasurable sensations occupanying it. After sex my vagina has a burning sensation, especially around the top half, and I always need to go afterwards. Its been so unpleasant I just don’t want sex any more. Please help, is there any product/(s) that will increase my desire for sex and make it enjoyable?
Yeah–I also think that the lack of emotional maturity observed in women may be largely due to their environmental upbringing and of course, possibly other reasons as well (like you said). If I had to quantify it, the levels of emotional maturity in women follows a Gaussian curve (or maybe even a slightly left-skewed distribution curve). Most women fall in the middle and then we have the two extremes, where one of them represents the very immature type and the other is the mature. Based on my experiences, a lot of girls I meet and even some of my female friends, they’re not completely emotionally mature–I’d say they’re in between or leaning towards the less mature extreme. But with time, I do hope they develop into the mature type. I think emotionally mature women are difficult to find–do you think so?
