A new study suggests some hormonal contraceptives may be associated with a low sex drive in women.
U.S. (WiredPRNews.com) – A new study suggests a low libido may be linked to some hormonal contraceptives for women. As reported by LiveScience.com, researchers found that women who use the pill and some other forms of hormonal contraceptives may have a higher risk of having a low sex drive.
Study researcher Dr. Lisa Maria Wallwiener, of the University of Heidelberg, is quoted in the report as stating of the research related to female sexual dysfunction, “FSD is a very common disorder, with an estimated prevalence of about two in five women having at least one sexual dysfunction, and the most common complaint appearing to be low desire.”
Study researcher Dr. Harald Seeger is further quoted as stating, “In future research it would be interesting to see if there is a difference between the dosage of estrogen and the various synthetic progestins used in hormonal contraceptives in terms of an impact on female sexual function.”
