What You’re Really Giving Up When You Give Up on Your Sex Life

June 20th, 2015

Renew Woman™ can help you restore your sex drive and reap all the benefits of a healthy sex life.

According to some experts, up to 40 percent of all women are unhappy with their sex drive. Some may have just lost their “spontaneous desire,” or that little flutter they used to feel when glimpsing an attractive stranger. Others may have lost their “responsive desire,” or the ability to get turned on when a partner initiates foreplay, which is much more distressing. In fact, an estimated 12 percent of all women experience such severe problems with desire that they qualify as having female sexual dysfunction. However, because many women simply don’t talk to their doctors about their sexual issues, the real figures may be much larger.

Trouble in the bedroom can strike at any age, but it is more common in perimenopausal and menopausal women.

Why? Because female desire and arousal has a strong hormonal component. These hormones are also linked to reproduction, so when periods stop, desire often gets sidelined too.

Sometimes women just accept this situation as a natural part of aging. But it’s important to remember that if you do this, you are depriving yourself of more than just sexual pleasure.

What Else You Lose When You Lose Your Sex Drive

Emotional Health: According to a study published in the Journal of Women’s Health, low sexual desire was linked to a variety of feelings of emotional distress in women from ages 20 to 60 (most of whom were in long-term relationships). Over 60 percent of the women reported that their lack of desire affected their body image and self-confidence and made them feel less connected to their partner. Researchers also found that negative emotional states such as frustration, hopelessness, anger, and low self-esteem were more common in women with low sex drive.

Overall Health: Sexual activity has been linked to a variety of health benefits for women, including better sleep, lower stress levels, improved immunity, lower blood pressure, and improved bladder control and vaginal lubrication. Having sex can also help with efforts to keep estrogen and testosterone balanced, which is very important for overall health.

Appearance: University researchers in Scotland found that couples who had sex 3 times per week or more were likely to appear 10 years younger than their less sexually active peers. Whether this is due to the sex itself or due to these individuals having extra motivation to stay sexy for their partners is not known.
