Here comes another Valentines Day and sex is on your mind, but for the wrong reason. As a woman, are you feeling less receptive to sex? Have you noticed feeling less sensual, or that your sex drive has diminished? If so, you’re not alone. This is a major complaint from most women experiencing Hormone Imbalance.
It’s common knowledge that Testosterone plays a significant role in both men and women when it comes to a healthy libido. But one of the more common deficiencies in women is Estrogen, which plays as much a role in a woman’s sex life as Testosterone.
In my practice, I have seen women with optimal levels of both hormones who still suffer with a low sex drive. Hormones are much more complicated than just pinpointing one symptom to one hormone. You can have optimal levels of both Estrogen and Testosterone, but if your Progesterone is elevated above normal, that also contributes to low libido.
Women today are faced with extremely busy lives; they’re juggling careers with family time, and often dealing with extended families and aging parent issues. Plus, we’re faced with unavoidable hormonal changes that come with monthly menstrual cycles, post pregnancy, or with menopause.
Women are complex sexual beings. Our heads, hearts, and health all play large roles in whether or not we’re interested in sex, never mind capable of actually enjoying it.
If low libido is affecting your quality of life, you do have options. How are you to know if your hormones are in balance and contributing to this condition? There is a very simple and accurate saliva test I offer to my clients, which, when analyzed by the lab, produces a clear picture of what’s going on. If a problem is identified, I then work with my clients on an individual basis to balance their system, not with drugs, but naturally. Sometimes adjustments are as simple as slight changes in diet. Other times, it’s a little more involved. Either way, the end result can be life changing.
