Sexuality is part of the life of all of us, women or men. And of course, the problems related to this can also occur with both sexes. At the same time that men face problems of impotence at different stages of life, problems such as female frigidity can also occur in women and cause their sex life to be disrupted in different ways. If you want to know more about the subject, what are the causes, symptoms and types of treatment for this problem, continue reading today’s text and find out.
What is Female Frigidity?
The first thing we should know is how to conceptualize what female frigidity really is. We can define this problem as the difficulty or even the inability of women to maintain vaginal lubrication and arousal during sexual intercourse. Women who have frigidity are often seen as “cold” or “unwilling”, which is a dangerous generalization . This can cause a woman to develop other problems, psychological, for example, that make it even more difficult for frigidity to be controlled. Therefore, it is always important to know what causes frigidity and how to treat it, since maintaining a healthy sex life is important for all people and reflects in different spheres of life.
Causes of Female Frigidity
Female frigidity can arise from several causes, but it is possible to separate them into three main groups, which are:
- Physical Causes
- Psychological causes
- Social and Cultural Causes
We will talk separately about each of these groups and how they contribute to a woman’s developing this type of problem.
Like many other sexual problems, female frigidity can stem from a physical problem. Hormonal changes , for example, can cause a woman to lose vaginal lubrication, which can contribute to frigidity developing. The use of certain hormone-containing medications can also cause this problem to occur. In addition, women who have undergone surgical procedures in the region of the vagina may also experience problems with lubrication and, consequently, with arousal.
Female frigidity can also be linked to psychological factors, whether due to diseases such as excess stress, anxiety disorder or depression , which make women lose their libido, or even because of personal pressures, such as fear caused by someone sexual trauma, mistreatment of the husband or even fear of becoming pregnant.
Social and Cultural Causes
We live in a society that, historically, has put women in a very uncomfortable position in relation to sexuality and this ends up creating several problems in many of them, including frigidity. In many societies, the fact that women show pleasure during sexual intercourse is seen as a bad thing , which causes them to end up developing this type of problem. Although all groups of causes have their complications, social and cultural ones are the most difficult to be remedied and treated because it involves a certain context that is often difficult to get around. This does not mean that there are no treatments, but that it is a more delicate situation.
Symptoms of Female Frigidity
Now that you have understood in more depth what female frigidity is and what are the main causes, it is important to understand also what are its main symptoms. They are:
- Reduction of sexual fantasies or even desires;
- Absence of excitement when having intimate contact;
- Lack of initiative to have intimate contact;
- Absence of excitement when having contact with eroticism in all forms, not just through contact;
- Pain during sexual intercourse ;
- Lack of sexual desire in general.
Treatments for Female Frigidity
Even if a woman has all of these symptoms, it is important to understand that female frigidity is curable. The treatment will depend on the causes of this problem, since a frigidity caused by hormonal changes is not the same as one caused by sexual trauma, for example. So, let’s talk here mainly about the types of treatment:
- Treatment through Remedies
- Treatments without remedies
Our goal is to show why these two forms of treatment exist and how they can help each type of case of female frigidity. It is also worth mentioning that the treatment can be done either by a gynecologist or a psychologist specialized in sexuality , depending on the origins of the problem.
Treatment through Remedies
First of all, it is important to say that there is no remedy for female frigidity specifically as there is Viagra for men, although some tests have already been done in this regard. Therefore, treatment with drugs acts much more on the disease that originated this problem and there is not exactly a pharmacy remedy for female frigidity.
If the woman has hypothyroidism, for example, treatment must be carried out so that her hormonal situation is regulated, which, consequently, will also help to cure frigidity. The same thing can happen with anxiety or depression treatments that require medication. However, in more delicate cases like these, medicines are usually only part of the treatment, and therapy is another extremely important step.
Treatment Without Medicines
Treatments without remedies for female frigidity are basically psychological. This is because most women who suffer from this problem have some problem in this regard. This is because sex is still taboo in our society, although this topic has made considerable progress in recent years. A psychologist or psychologist specializing in sexuality can help a woman to accept her own body and understand how it works , so that frigidity is combated.
Of course, treatment should not always be done by a psychologist who specializes in sexuality, as problems such as anxiety and depression often require treatment with other specialists. For this reason, the types of treatment without medication can vary widely.
Sexual problems are taboo, especially when they involve your body and mind. Often women feel pressure from society, from their partners or even from themselves to have certain behaviors that they do not want or are unable to have. Understanding what your own sexuality is , getting to know your body and accepting what gives you pleasure is very important. A healthy sex life also means a happier, more peaceful and relaxed life.
Therefore, problems such as female frigidity should not be seen as an aberration or something to be avoided. They should be seen as any other problem and treated in order for you to have a better life. This is how more and more women can avoid having this problem and, consequently, have a better life.
