Lubrication Problem

Women often complain of lack of sufficient lubrication while having sex. This might be due to lack of external stimulation or foreplay or bodily stress. The vaginal region is made of delicate tissues which tend to tear or face a tissue rupture if penetration is made without sufficient lubrication. Water-based lubricants can be used for lubrication purpose. These lubricants are easy to use and safe.



It is the absence of orgasm. It can be caused by sexual inhibition, inexperience, lack of knowledge, and psychological factors such as guilt, anxiety, or a past sexual trauma. See an expert when you are encountering the issue


Irregular Menstrual Cycles

Irregular menstrual cycles can also cause sex problems in women. The lower abdominal region often remains sensitive right after a periodic discharge every month and this differs from women to women. And a sexual intercourse even after the menstrual cycle may hurt the woman. But this differs from one body type to the other. See a doctor to find the reason behind it.


Medical Conditions that affect Sex Live

Medical conditions such as heart diseases, hormonal imbalances and other chronic diseases such as kidney dysfunction, neurosis, menopause and drug abuse can also lead to problems in sex life and cause permanent damage to desire for sex. Getting medical attention for the medical conditions reverses the sex problem in most cases.


Conditions caused by Intercourse

Often ovarian cysts, vaginitis, fungal infections or endometriosis can be the common problems that are caused by sexual intercourses. This should be treated with a lot of care as these infections are stubborn in nature and refuse to subside permanently. For long-term results, a proper medication should be followed for leading a problem-free sex life. Otherwise, penetration would often become painful for women in the long run.

Psychological Problems

Another common sex problems that women face is being tensed or anxious while having an intercourse. Anxiety and stress often destabilise the hormonal level in the body of the woman leading to a premature orgasm or a failed sexual intercourse between the partners. Fear and tension in the minds of the women often ruin active sex life. Factors such as ill health, molestation cases, sex trauma or work stress are the most commonly diagnosed reasons for a problematic sex life. Keep stress to the minimum to keep psychological problems at bay.
