Reasons you’re not having Sex

When it comes to not having sex, there are many excuses. Right from lack of time to getting exhausted, working all day, PMS, headaches, and holding it for the other day, women have scores of excuses. But what are the real reasons behind not having sex?

Here’s why you haven’t been enjoying sex off late:

Hormonal Imbalance

Pregnancy, breast-feeding, thyroid related problems, and birth control pills, can lead to hormonal imbalance. This is one of the major reasons for dampening sexual desire.

Abuse

Sexual abuse or trauma in the past may lead to fear of having sex.

Relationships Problems

It is not possible for a woman to have sex if there are problems in a relationship. Problems with partner and at home can affect your libido adversely.

Social Cause

The society teaches a woman to refrain from sex. They are brought up to view sex as sinful or a bad thing. This mindset can create a bad impact on women all their life.

Fear of Commitment

Constant breakups and other problems in past relationship can affect a woman’s sex life. They are afraid of getting close to men.

Lack of Knowledge

Women are usually brought up secluded from knowledge about sex. This makes her be uncertain about how to deal with it in future.

Societal Issues

Many issues such as peer pressure, job stress, media images of sexuality etc. can affect one’s sexual performance.

Medications
A number of medications including oral contraceptives, antidepressants, blood pressure drugs, chemotherapy, etc. can exterminate sexual desires of a woman.

Age

Androgen blood levels tend to fall as women age. This leads too low sex drive.

Abstinence

Long term abstinence from sexual intercourse or engaging in masturbation for an extended period can be the major cause of disinterest in sex in the long run. These factors make women unconsciously or consciously turn off the desire. This is owing to the fact that testosterone production is stimulated by indulging in sex regularly. Once it is stopped, the level drops.

Low Testosterone

Testosterone is the hormone that affects sexual drive in men and women. Unfortunately, testosterone levels in women decline naturally by an average of 50 per cent between the ages of 20 and 45. This also continues to decline as they age.  The levels peak when women are in their mid-20s and steadily decline until menopause. This is the time when the desire drops dramatically.
