Contraceptives Can Also Be a Reason for Low Libido Levels
Many women take birth control pills to avoid unwanted pregnancies, but these pills could be a big blow to your libido. So, when it comes to choosing your birth control pills, it is always better to consult your doctor and purchase the right pills.
How Does Birth Control Effect Libido
While birth control pills have high levels of estrogen that can help boost libido levels, they seem to affect the other hormones, which are responsible for sex, i.e. testosterone. You might think that testosterone is a male hormone, but they too play an important role when it comes to libido levels in women.
Birth control pills affect the testosterone levels by increasing the amount of SHBG in the body. This does not mean all birth control pills will have the same effect. If you feel that, the birth control pill might be the cause for not experiencing “it” with your partner, then you might want to switch over to a different brand.
Try to identify the root cause of what is causing low libido levels. Many women experience mood swings i.e. they might be happy one moment and the next moment they might get all cranky or ill tempered. You need to understand your body changes and see which the best solution to deal with the issue is.
Stress and Emotions Too Play a Role in Low Libido
You cannot entirely blame your birth control pills on your low sex drive. Low sex drive can also be due to emotional or mental stress. Stress can be related to work pressures, hectic work life, managing kids and home or some mental trauma.
Women as we know are very emotional by nature. A small fight or argument can make women sentimental. Conflicts and arguments can be resolved by talking it out with each other. Take some time out and discuss your issues.
Other reasons for low libido could be:
Sexual issues or Disorders
Surgery to your genitals
Dealing with the Issue One Step at a Time
You can never be sure what is causing low libido. It is always better to consult your doctor. If you are suffering from sexual issues or trauma, do not feel shy to discuss with your doctor. They might be the best judge on guiding you how to deal with the issue and can also help in getting your sexual life back on track.
