A healthy libido is important for the formation and maintenance of intimate relationships. Libido is a person’s sex drive and sexual desire. Sexual dysfunction is common in both men and women of all the ages.
A woman’s sexual desire keeps on fluctuating from time to time with the beginning or ending of the relationship or at the time of pregnancy, menopause or illness. Causes for unhealthy libido in women can be relationship issues, hormonal decline, job stress, depression and contraception.
Here are four ways to improve female libido:
1. Have More Chocolates:
Chocolates have always been a symbol of desire. They help in improving sexual desire. Consumption of chocolates releases phenyl ethylamine and serotonin in your body which help in lifting your mood. Consumption of chocolates has more of psychological and less of biological effects on sexual drive.
2. Boost your Self Confidence:
Shift your focus from all your drawbacks and flaws to your strengths. Get rid of the feeling that your body doesn’t have a proper shape or you don’t look good as such feelings keep you away from sexual intercourse. Boost the level of self confidence and feel good about yourself.
3. Reduce Stress Levels:
Stress results in depression and keeps you away from sexual interactions. Reduce the level of stress with techniques such as meditation, yoga and by maintaining a healthy diet.
4. Maintain a Tidy Room:
A neat and tidy room increases your desire for sex. A messy room with things all over the bed spoils your mood and you keep yourself away from sex. Keep all your stuff at their proper places, dim the lights of your room, light some candles, use a good room spray and keep some chocolates nearby to give your room a perfect ambience.
