Understanding the Factors That Lead to Low Sexual Desire in Females: Insights from Dr. Daria Kazakova, Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist

Factors Contributing to Low Sexual Desire in Females

Stress, chronic fatigue, lack of self-confidence, dissatisfaction with personal appearance, and problems with a partner lead to low sexual desire in females.

Dr. Daria Kazakova, a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology, explains in an interview with Gazeta.Ru that the physical condition can often lead to a decrease in sexual desire in women. This is especially the case when there is a low level of testosterone in the woman’s body, as its highest level is observed in the woman’s body at the age of 20-30 years, and gradually decreases thereafter, explaining why women’s sexual desire tends to decrease with age. This decline can be observed in the post-childbirth period as well.

Effects of Post-Childbirth Period

Dr. Kazakova notes that during the postpartum period, estrogen production decreases and prolactin production increases, leading to vaginal dryness and possible trauma during intercourse. Psychological factors such as constant fatigue, exhaustion, and social isolation can also contribute to decreased sexual desire in young mothers.

Impact of Perimenopause and Menopause

Another factor contributing to decreased sexual desire in women is perimenopause and menopause. During these periods, menstruation becomes irregular or may stop altogether, and due to decreased ovarian reserve, the production of estrogen and testosterone decreases. Additionally, diseases of the female reproductive system, such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, adhesions, and vaginismus, may lead to pain during intercourse, further reducing sexual desire.

Other Contributing Factors

In addition to hormonal and physical factors, chronic cardiovascular and endocrine diseases, cancer, and psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder can cause decreased sexual desire in women. Certain medications may also contribute to this decline.

Dr. Kazakova emphasizes that there are no fixed standards for the frequency of sexual intercourse. If a couple is happy and their relationship is harmonious, there may not be a problem, even if their sexual life is not as active as others.
