How can women with no sex drive be treated? What information do you have on female sexual arousal problems?

Answer:

There are no standard treatments for a reduced interest in sex. For women with little sexual desire it is sometimes enough to have a few conversations in which they can express their feelings and ask questions about the extent to which their situation is abnormal. Counselling about reduced desire in stressful situations like death, unemployment, being childless, disease of the partner or stress at work may be sufficient. If all sexual interest has disappeared, and there is no masturbation either, the hormonal regulation should be examined. When anomalies in this are found, medication can be prescribed.

Depending on the causes of the complaints, a treatment will be set up. Physical causes are also treated depending on the cause. The lack of interest in making love due to certain medication may be treated by using other medication or another dose. Psychological causes can best be determined and treated by a sexologist. Psychotherapy, that studies and treats the psychological causes, can be important in this. It is important to understand that thoughts often go through the mind while making love which negatively influence the interest in sex. Social influences e.g relation problems, stress at work, etc. are treated by relation therapy or psychotherapy.
