The year 1998 marks an evolution in the medical industry. This is the year when a blue pill, named Viagra, came to the rescue of men all over the world who were suffering from a condition known as erectile dysfunction.

This also led to more men becoming aware of the fact that they are not alone in the fight against poor erections and erections that does not long during sex. Today, Viagra is the most popular drug amongst men who suffer from this particular sexual dysfunction.

Today, Viagra is a common name that most people know of – even those who do not suffer from erectile dysfunction know what Viagra is and what this blue pill does.

While a pill was developed to help men become better lovers in the bedroom by improving* their erectile function, should they be having problems with their abilities during sex, women were left in the blind. Even though female sexual problems are less often discussed than male sexual issues, it is important to realize that women can also suffer from a variety of sexual dysfunctions.

Fortunately, in modern times, some companies have taken it upon themselves to provide women with an effective way to alleviate their sexual dysfunctions and become better at sex. In this post, we would like to discuss female sexual issues, as well as take a look at the best sex supplements for women in 2018.

What are the Common Sexual Dysfunctions in Women?

The internet is filled with publications that describe some of the most common sexual dysfunctions that men may experience during their time in bed with a partner, but there is a lack of information regarding the fact that women can also suffer from numerous sexual dysfunctions.

For this reason, it is important to realize that sexual dysfunctions amongst women are real, and can be just as detrimental to them as the development of sex-related issues can be for a man.

WebMD[2] explains that some sexual dysfunctions are shared amongst men and women, but there are some issues that are also unique to women. The following are the most common sexual issues that women experience:

Sexual Dysfunctions In Women

Low Sex Drive – Often referred to as inhibited sex drive or a low libido, this is a condition that causes a woman to experience a significant reduction* in their desire to have sexual intercourse. In some cases, a woman may still experience the desire to participate in sexual intercourse at certain times, but sometimes a woman’s sex drive may be completely inhibited.

A study[3] by RTI International surveyed a group of 2207 women in the United States, all aged between 30 years and 70 years. They found that the prevalence of low sexual desire, also called hypoactive sexual desire disorder, seems to depend on various factors.

Amongst premenopausal women, the prevalence was the lowest, at 26.7%. The prevalence amongst women who have naturally gone through menopause was 52.4%.

Anorgasmia – A relatively common sexual dysfunction amongst women that refers to a situation where a woman is unable to have an orgasm during sexual intercourse. This can be quite troublesome as it may leave a woman unsatisfied during sex, which may not only be an issue for her, but also for her sexual partner.

According to ABC News[4], as much as 75% of women never reach the point of orgasm through sexual intercourse. These women usually require additional stimulation to have an orgasm. It should also be noted, amongst these women, up to 15% are never able to experience an orgasm, even with continued sexual stimulation.

Painful Intercourse – Another relatively common sex-related issue that woman often experience is painful intercourse. This condition is pretty much self-explanatory – it refers to pain experienced while a woman is participating in sexual intercourse.

According to a study[5] that was conducted by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, it is estimated that approximately 7.5% of women who are sexually active experiences painful intercourse.

What Factors Causes Women To Experience Sexual Dysfunctions

There are many different issues that can lead to sexual dysfunctions in women. In order to determine what potential causes and risk factors may be playing a part in a woman’s sex-related problems, it is important to first consider the particular symptoms she is experiencing.

eMedicine Health[6] explains that there are some general risk factors and contributing factors that have been noted to cause sexual problems among women, however.

Psychological factors are amongst the top causes of sexual dysfunctions amongst women, and can contribute to all three of the sex-related issues we have discussed in this article.

There are numerous psychological factors that can contribute to these problems, such as depression and anxiety, living a stressful life, and feelings of guilt. Experiencing problems with a relationship can also be detrimental on a woman’s life.

In addition to these factors, a history of sexual abuse can also greatly affect a woman’s performance in the bedroom.

A woman can also experience sex problems when she suffers from gynecologic problems. There are numerous gynecologic problems that may interfere with a woman’s ability to be good in the bedroom.

This may include vaginal dryness, which is relatively common, as well as vaginismus and vaginitis.

There are numerous sexually transmitted diseases that can affect a woman’s sexual performance as well. Some examples of such diseases include syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea and herpes.

Physical Factors

Physical factors also contribute to good or bad sex. There are a variety of physical health conditions that can lead to a woman experiencing issues during sexual intercourse.

Some particular physiological factors known to contribute to poor sexual performance in a woman include fatigue, cancer, neurological disorders, hormone imbalances, menopause, alcohol usage, drug abuse and blood circulation disorders.

Some chronic diseases, including heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease and diabetes can also greatly contribute to these particular problems.

Medication may also interfere with a woman’s ability to enjoy sex or become sexually aroused. The most common type of medication that causes a low libido as a side-effect is antidepressants known as serotonin-reuptake inhibitors, or SSRI for short, but there are other medication that may also cause this as a side-effect. Examples include medication used to treat* high blood pressure levels, chemotherapy medication and antipsychotic drugs.

In addition to these particular contributing factors that may lead to the development of sexual problems amongst women, we should also note that when a woman’s sexual partner suffers from sexual dysfunctions or performance-related issues in the bedroom, then this may also affect her performance during sexual intercourse.

For example, when a woman’s sexual partner is unable to become erect enough for sexual intercourse, the woman may not feel aroused.

Can Female Sexual Dysfunctions Be Treated Through A Pharmaceutical Approach

Pharmaceutical Approach

While Viagra has revolutionized the medical industry related to male sexual disorders, there is still a lot of research to be done in order to determine how pharmaceutical drugs may assist with boosting a woman’s sex drive and address other particular problems a woman may be facing in the bedroom.

It is often possible, however, to improve* the symptoms a woman is experiencing related to her sexual performance by making adjustments to the medication she is currently taking.

Since numerous types of medication can cause a low sex drive as a side-effect, Mayo Clinic[7] explains that resolving these problems may be as simple as adjusting the type of medication the woman is being provided to treat* other health problems she may be suffering from, such as depression.

In some women, hormone therapy has also been proven as an effective treatment option for improving* sexual performance and overall sexual health. This, of course, is only provided to women when their estrogen levels are lower than normal and they are indeed suffering from a hormonal imbalance.

We should also note that a relatively new drug, known as Flibanserin or Addyi, has also been approved by the FDA to be provided to premenopausal women who suffer from a low libido, but this drug comes with numerous risks that should be considered.

Now that we have taken a look at some of the most common sexual dysfunctions that affect women and how they are treat* with pharmaceutical drugs, we want to move our focus to natural supplements that may help to improve* a woman’s sex life without causing any significant side-effects.

First, however, we want to take a look at a moment in history that set the standards for natural supplements to be formulated for female sexual health specifically.

Express UK[8] reports that, for the first time in history, a scientifically-proven supplement was released for women in 2014. This supplement was promoted as a natural Viagra for women, and claimed to improve* several aspects of female sexual wellbeing and performance amongst users.

While some products were released prior to this one, it should be noted that this is the first natural supplement for women that had scientists back up its effectiveness, which is why the supplement become a top-selling sex pill in the United Kingdom.

Today, however, these types of supplements can be found all over the world, including the United States.
