Many women experience problems with sexual dissatisfaction throughout their lives. According to The National Health Institute (NIH) approximately 40% of women suffer from sexual dysfunction and there are few treatment options.

Lifestyle and home remedies

To boost your sexual health, find ways to be comfortable with your sexuality, improve your self-esteem and accept your body. Try practicing these healthy lifestyle habits:

Avoid excessive alcohol. Drinking too much blunts sexual responsiveness.

Don’t smoke. Cigarette smoking restricts blood flow throughout your body. Less blood reaches your sexual organs, which means you could experience decreased sexual arousal and orgasmic response.

Be physically active. Regular aerobic exercise increases your stamina, improves your body image and elevates your mood. This can help you feel more romantic, more often.

Make time for leisure and relaxation. Learn ways to decrease stress, and allow yourself to relax amid the stresses of your daily life. Being relaxed can enhance your ability to focus on your sexual experiences and may help you attain more satisfying arousal and orgasm.

Medical treatments can include estrogen therapy, ospemifene, androgen therapy including testosterone, filbanserin (Addyi®️), bremelanotide (Vyleesi®️) to name a few.
