The Ideal/Hierarchical Causes Of Low Intimate Drive in Women.

It is quite alright for a woman to have her intimate desire reduced or fluctuate over time. Conditions such as pregnancy, illnesses, or menopause play a significant role in a woman's desire. Sometimes bad relationships or drugs taken for medications can also have an impact.

if the poor intimate desire is just periodic and diminishes over time, we can consider it to be normal. But if it continues, then it is a problem that needs to be addressed. Maybe you may not need a doctor if the problem is minor. You may just need to adjust some of your daily lifestyles.


1. Being concerned about the lack of intimate relationships.

2. Poor interest in any intimate relationship.

3. Having no thought of intimacy at all.


There are several causes of low intimacy drive in women, ranging from illnesses, physical changes, and medications. Check below.


i. MEDICAL DISEASES: Diseases such as cancer, high blood pressure, neurological diseases, coronary artery diseases, etc, can massively affect a woman's intimate lifestyle.

ii. MEDICATION: Certain drugs may enhance or decreases one or two metabolic activities in your body. Drugs like antidepressants are known to cause low intimate drive.

iii. INTIMATE PROBLEMS: This can range between painful intimacy, delayed climax, or no climax at all. These problems can result in having no interest in intimate relationships.

iv. SURGERY: This has to do with the reshaping or removal or modifying one's body part which has a significant impact on that person's intimate drive. For example, surgery on the breast or genital area can affect the function of that part of the body and desire for intimacy.

v. HABITS: Habits such as smoking, alcoholism, or drug addiction affect the entire body system. For example, an individual may be faced with poor arousal, as smoking hinders essential blood supply important parts of the body.

vi. FATIGUE: Excessive workout or domestic activities makes a woman tired and when someone is tired, no energetic activity would be expected from him.


Sequential changes in a woman's hormones may alter her intimate drive. It may occur during:

i. Pregnancy/Breastfeeding:

During pregnancy, there are series of hormonal changes in the body. Changes like body image which usually accompany pregnancy in some women can affect their intimate drive. Likewise, after giving birth, fatigue and the pressure of breastfeeding can damper the urge to have intimacy.

ii. Menopause:

When a woman reaches or approaches menopause, there is loss or reduced estrogen and testosterone in her body. During this time, they noticed poor arousal and are very less sensitive. The drop in estrogen results in low blood supply to genital areas and that is a major setback to genital lubrication.


This has to do with the state of mind that affects your intimate desire. This includes:

i. Anxiety/depression.

ii. Excessive stress.

iii. when you have a history of intimate abuse.

iv. Poor body image.

v. A history of negative intimate experience.

vi. Lack of confidence.


Sometimes in relationships, one or two problems must arise in one way or the other and that is a major setback to one's intimate drive.

These problems that a woman can encounter in a relationship that can hinder her intimacy drive may include.

1. Poor communication with her partner.

2. Lack of trust
