Women’s sexual desire and relationship therapy in my Denver psychotherapy practice

Although every women is different, and may have a different relationship with their sexuality, low sexual desire is a common issue, especially for perimenopausal women. What is uncommon is for people to do something about those problems before they irreparably damage their self-esteem and relationships.

 

Women's sexuality naturally changes with time. Physiological changes such as hormone imbalance and alterations to vaginal and erectile tissues due to aging and birthing may result in a low, or hypoactive sexual desire. These are issues to be addressed with a gynecologist or medical practitioner. But, low libido may also have psychological or emotional origins.

 

Stress, anxiety, and fatigue are major factor in low sexual desire. Women's responsibilities tend to increase with age. Caretaking of children, aging parents and family members, household and career issues take their toll. These pressures, including the pressure to perform sexually, adversely affect a woman's sexual arousal and drive.

 

Sexual desire is directly correlated with the sense of being desirable. Low self esteem or depression are contributing factors in reducing a woman's sexual vitality. Women are taught that their value and attractiveness diminishes with age, or, that being sexual is wrong or negative. These may lead to mistaken beliefs about body or self image that wall-off the natural connection with sexuality.

 

A history of abuse, trauma, or relationship hurts also have an enormous impact on women's sexual arousal. Sexual withdrawal is a common response to emotional wounding, betrayal, or invalidation. Reestablishing intimacy and trust and learning to give voice to unmet needs are key to a healthy sex life.

Silence about sexual issues is the great killer of relationships. It is common for people to encounter sexual problems, at any age. Women may experience arousal and orgasm difficulties, low sex drive, or pain during intercourse, while men may struggle with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and low libido. What is uncommon is for people to speak and do something about those problems before they irreparably damage their self-esteem and relationships. To learn more about Sex Therapy options, click here.
