A woman’s sexual needs vary, but low testosterone levels may be the culprit if you struggle with low libido and lack of satisfaction. Most people think that testosterone is the “male” hormone, but everyone has some, including women. When the levels get low, it can lead to intimacy issues. Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa in Peoria can help through their state-of-the-art functional health facility.

Woman not in the mood for intimacy with her partner

Decreased Libido

Women experience a decreased libido due to many factors, and Low T often gets overlooked as a cause. But, this lack of desire is just as hurtful for women as it is for men. There is a stereotype that women don’t desire sex as much as men do, but this is patently false, and when desire lags, women feel it strongly. This lack of desire leads to lower self-esteem and emotional issues, negatively impacting personal relationships with partners.

Less Sexual Satisfaction

Low testosterone levels can also lead to decreased sexual satisfaction. Much like erectile dysfunction in men, a woman’s lack of satisfaction leads to anger and sadness. Women want to enjoy sex, but no matter what they do, there is no release. Of course, orgasms are not the only way to feel satisfied, but emotional changes also impact the ability to enjoy sex, making sexual satisfaction even harder to come by.

Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness is one of those symptoms that most doctors will tell you comes with age and getting closer to menopause. But, in reality, this may not be true. While testosterone and other hormones decrease as we age, menopause is not the magic answer to every sexual-related problem. It is just as likely to be Low T causing problems.

A woman feeling tired at work


Women who have low testosterone levels may feel extra tired and have less energy all around. This lack of energy causes women to give up on the idea of intimacy because they are just too tired to participate. When this happens, they may feel lonely or otherwise unwanted by their partner. It is important to keep the spirit alive, even if the final result doesn’t lead to sex.

Luckily, there are remedies for Low T in women. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) works to combat low testosterone. This therapy helps when used in tandem with a holistic medicine approach to treat the whole body and not just the symptoms.
