The Woman had no problem with her libido, only with her lack of discretion. Bodies in motion under a moonlit sky, with a young girl watching, get the hint. Discretion, Woman, discretion! But, I guess when one has the urge, one has to act upon it!
Everyone knows that a woman’s libido can take a nosedive when she’s stressed, depressed, or menopausal. However, other less-known health issues can cause difficulties with intimacy, such as desire.
A flagging libido and limited arousal have the same root cause, which is blood flow to the required private areas. Any health problem that interferes with blood flow throughout the body can cause the stated problems.
The culprits are: high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, smoking and medications.
Cholesterol is a fatlike substance that contributes to plaque formation in the arteries. As arteries become clogged and narrowed, blood flow is restricted. Total cholesterol above 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) can contribute to arousal problems.
There are no studies that have shown that cholesterol-lowering statin drugs cause sexual dysfunction in women, but we do know that statins can lower men’s levels of testosterone, a hormone that strongly influences sex drive. Statins may have a similar effect in women (who also produce testosterone, though at lower levels than men do.)
Regular exercise and a low-fat diet that includes cholesterol-lowering foods, such as ground flaxseeds, walnuts, certain fruits and vegetables can help improve sexual drive. One can speak with one’s doctor about cholesterol-lowering supplements, such as niacin, red yeast rice extract and fish oil.
Fortunately, ground flaxseeds and walnuts are easily available for purchase, as well as niacin, red yeast rice extract and fish oil. Ground flaxseeds, niacin supplements, red yeast rice extract, and fish oil can be purchased at any health food store, while walnuts at most grocery stores.
