Low Sex Drive? No Big Deal, Say Most Women

MSNBC: If you don't have much desire for sex, but aren't bothered by your lack of desire, do you have a medical problem? A new study, published Friday in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, is adding fuel to this long-running debate and raising some important questions that may spark discussions between lovers.

In a survey of 31,581 women across the U.S. ages 18 to 102, 44 percent reported having sexual problems, the most common being low desire for sex. The findings mirrored those of many other surveys -- but what sets this one apart is that of those women reporting sexual problems, only 12 percent say they are are actually bothered by it.

The report's lead author, Dr. Jan L. Shifren of Massachusetts General Hospital, says "the reason the study is important is that we read about 30 or 40 percent us -- women -- experience sexual problems and we confirm that, yes, about 30 percent of women may note low desire, or orgasmic response, but when you ask if it is a distressing problem, that is a much lower percentage of women."

I’ve had a low sex drive and it’s not fun. Being a female that just loves sex, nothing hit me worse. I tried these herbal female enhancers and they’ve been doing a great job.

I’ve had a low libido before and it’s not fun. I just hated it. I enjoy sex now though more then ever after just waiting and getting through it.
