Are you encountering problems with your sexual urges? Do you think you are not able to keep up with the demands of a healthy sexual relationship? If you answer yes to these questions, then you are experiencing periods of low libido.
Re-Learning the Basics
Libido is a human primal instinct. It is the human sexual drive, and the urge of an individual to perform sexual activities.
The female libido is more complex than that of the males. Women associate sex with emotions, romance and feelings. It is not a random activity which a woman will perform. The whole sexual act is a part of a woman’s life. Meaning, whatever happens throughout her day or week may or may not affect her ability in bed.
Stress and Libido
Going back to the 2 questions presented earlier; these queries form a simple evaluation of how your sexual drive has been for last couple of times. If you are indeed feeling a little low sexually, look at your schedule. What have you been doing lately? Do your organizer and planner present a series of appointments and deadlines? Have you been way too focused on your work, children or career?
Stress, though usually overlooked, is a common problem associated with low libido. According to many studies and researches, stress plays a pivotal role in libido management. Stress, in whatever form, affects the sexual drive of woman. According to clinical studies, about 62% of women having emotional issues are suffering from low sexual desires.
The Problem: When the body is in a ‘flight or fight’ response mode, it undergoes a series of phases to accommodate and anticipate the possible changes. Involved in this cascade of event is the release of adrenaline which, if left continuously available in the body, can lead to adrenal fatigue and render the body unresponsive to sexual encounters.
The Solution: Learn stress management techniques such as yoga, deep breathing exercises and meditation. Reverse your stress responses by giving time for play and fun.
The Problem: It is common for women these days to juggle different faces – a career woman, a mom, a wife, a daughter and a loyal citizen to the world. These are but a few of the roles which women are bestowed to deal with everyday. When the demands and the pressure of each role rise, so does the stress they accompany. A hectic schedule and a hundred-long errand list can cause energy drain. That means no ‘bed time’ for the hubby.
The Solution: It’s plain and simple – be less busy and spare time for your hubby. How do you do this? Be an effective time manager. Learn to prioritize your activities. Put what’s most important for you at the top of your list, and be always ready to say no.
The female libido is a tricky sexual urgency. If you call the right shots, you might just be successful in slaying it.
