It is important to have a healthy libido to maintain a happy relationship between partners. But, there are cases when high libido in women causes serious problems. Here are some of the causes of high sex drive in women:
-Drug and alcohol abuse
-Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome
-Other Causes: A child who is sexually molested may start to masturbate long before the onset of puberty. Many of the foods that we consume have hormones added to them that may increase libido in females.
There are several things that you can try to reduce your increased libido.
Some women take estrogen to counteract the effect of testosterone.
Energy burning exercises such as dancing, running and physical labor are other things that help to control excessive sexual thoughts. Meditation
Focusing your thoughts on things that interest you besides sex is another effective way to reduce your hyperactive sex drive. Yoga, meditation and breathing exercises also help to curb the libido.
Testosterone blockers, or anti-androgens, are drugs that target androgen receptors in the body to inhibit the hormone molecules from finding their usual receptors.
They usually show effective results and dosages can be tailored to achieve the optimal libido reduction.
