Lower Sex Drive, Loose or Dry Vagina

A woman’s libido is based on many components that affect intimacy. Which means low sex drive isn’t always about the sex. Often a woman’s physical health, mental well-being, experiences, lifestyle, and current relationship affect her libido.

Physical causes for low libido could be sexual problems, such as experiencing pain during intercourse or being unable to orgasm, or an underlying medical issue, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, or something else.

Medications, alcohol, and drugs can all affect libido as well. Fatigue is another common libido killer and one commonly faced by caregivers—whether you’re a new parent or tending aging parents. Hormone levels may also alter your sex drive. If you’re menopausal, pregnant, or breast feeding, you may notice a waning sexual desire.

Problems in your relationship could also be a factor in your decreased interest in sex. If you and your partner have unresolved conflicts, lack of connection, or have experienced a breach of trust, such as infidelity, it may be difficult to feel intimate. There are also psychological issues that may cause low sex drive, including mental health problems, such as depression or anxiety; stress; low self-esteem; poor body image; or a history of abuse.

Although vaginal dryness affects many women, they rarely bring up the topic with their doctors. It’s a common problem in menopausal women, but can occur at any age.

Reduced estrogen levels are the leading cause of vaginal dryness. Estrogen maintains normal vaginal lubrication and tissue health, providing a natural defense against infections. When estrogen levels decrease, your defense does also, leading to a more fragile vaginal lining and increase risk of vaginal and urinary tract infection. Estrogen levels may fall due to menopause, childbirth, breast feeding, cancer therapy, removal of ovaries, immune disorders, or smoking.

Another cause of vaginal dryness is medications. Allergy and cold medicines are notorious for decreasing moisture in your entire body—even your vagina. And you may not suspect that douching would create dryness, but it disrupts the normal chemical balance in your vagina, which may lead to an itchy and dry condition known as vaginitis.
