Researchers Have Discovered New Causes of Female Sex Life Unharmonious

According to a paper published by British scientists in the North American Menopause Association (NAMS) journal Menopause, in addition to biological reasons, there are also social and psychological factors in women’s decline in sexual life as they age.

In today’s society, the number of women with normal sex life decreases with age, and the number of women who enjoy sex life after menopause is even lower. However, little is known about the effects of various social and psychological changes that are common after menopause, including concerns about body image, self-confidence and perceived desires, stress, and emotional changes.

To this end, the researchers used a free-text data analysis of the British Ovarian Cancer Screening Cooperative Trial (UKCTOCS) involving nearly 4,500 postmenopausal women to better understand the various factors that reduce women’s sex life.

According to UKCTOCS’s sexual activity data, about half of the women are sexually active during the baseline period prior to the start of screening each year. But over time, all aspects of sexual activity have decreased: the frequency of sexual activity is low, and disharmony. The main reason for the lack of sexual behavior is the lack of sexual partners caused by widowhood.

Other common reasons for reduced sex life include the health of the partner, the sexual dysfunction of the partner, the physical health problems of the woman itself, and the symptoms and prescription drugs associated with menopause.

The most common cause of low libido is the relationship between husband and wife and the perception of aging. Only 3% of the subjects described positive sexual experiences, while only 6% of the subjects sought medical help for sexual problems.

“As time goes on, sexual health challenges are common in women’s sexual behavior and satisfaction, and partner factors play an important role in women’s sexual behavior and satisfaction, these include lack of partner, sexual dysfunction of the partner, poor health of the partner, and intimacy. ” the researchers said.

“In addition, menopausal-related problems such as vaginal dryness and painful intercourse have been identified as affecting sexual function, but despite effective treatments, few women seek treatment.”
