Scientists and researchers are finding out how the libido and testosterone in women goes up and down. Women need for intimacy changes, and their body may not respond the same way it does for a young girls.

Testosterone is not just a male hormone. Women also needs little bit of testosterone with their estrogen hormone to bring in a sex drive for them. And hormone therapy doesn’t always work. Sometimes, hormone therapy can bring imbalance and make it worse. A blood test and your gynecologist can determine if low testosterone is to blame.

Brain is too active, even during intimacy. According to brain scan research, women’s brains are naturally more active than men’s, even during sex. It is because women have lower levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine creates the desire to go after a reward—in this case, an orgasm. And the hormone dopamine can also increase the flow of our sensory impulses to the organs and genitals that plays essential role in arousal. But low levels of dopamine caused by chronic stress or medical conditions can distract you during sex.

Orgasm doesn’t always have to do with emotional or mental, even physical things like poor internal body blood flow to the sexual organs that are caused by cardiovascular conditions like diabetes or heart disease, makes it harder to have an orgasm. Smoking cigarettes can also disrupt blood flow by constricting blood vessels. Also declinine in the hormone levels due to perimenopause and menopause can do the same.
