According to a new study, most of the menopausal women with low sexual desire are more likely to develop various physical symptoms like back pain and mental health problems like depression and memory loss.
According to the research, women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder are diagnosed with worse health related quality of life and poorer health conditions when compared with other healthy women.
Women with this hypoactive sexual disorder were more than twice likely to develop poor health conditions including memory problems, back pain and fatigue.
Researchers also show that women with low sexual desire have certain degree of mental and physical impairment that is equivalent to other chronic health conditions like diabetes (diabetes types), asthma, high blood pressure (high blood pressure diet)and osteoarthritis.
According to Andrea K. Biddle, Ph.D., associate professor of health policy and management at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, “research shows that the problem of low sexual desire in menopausal women is significant and relevant clinical problem, rather than normal or unavoidable part of normal aging process.
Women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder encounter similar health burdens like other individuals with serious chronic health conditions”.
Studies have shown that, depending on women’s existing menopausal status and current age, almost 9 to 26 percent of women in United States suffer with hypoactive sexual desire disorder.
Survey has concluded that women with low sexual desire are more likely to develop depression and express dissatisfaction to their sexual partners and also with their home lives.
