Sexual Wellness Q & A

What is sexual wellness?

Sexual wellness refers to your sexual health and well-being. Having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences nourishes your physical and emotional health, as well as your intimate relationship.

A lack of desire, difficulty reaching orgasm, or pain during intercourse affects your sexual wellness and may strain your intimate relationship. These symptoms are signs of sexual dysfunction.

What affects sexual wellness?

There are many factors that may affect your sexual wellness. This may include physical, psychological, or hormonal problems.

Physical health problems

Many physical health conditions and treatments affect a woman’s sexual wellness. This may include chronic conditions, like cancer or heart disease, or medications such as antidepressants or antihistamines.

Psychological conditions

Mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety, may also affect your sexual wellness. Ongoing stress and a history of sexual abuse may affect your libido and sexual desire.

Hormonal problems

Many women experience a change in sexual wellness in the years leading up to menopause due to declining estrogen levels. Estrogen is a female hormone that maintains vaginal health, including elasticity and moisture of your vaginal tissue.

These hormonal problems may cause painful intercourse or a low libido. 

Women may also experience sexual dysfunction from hormonal changes following pregnancy.
