Every woman has a night here and there where sex is the very last thing that’s on their mind. It happens—and there’s nothing wrong with that. But when disinterest in sex, or lack of satisfaction with sexual relations, turns into a more frequent problem, it might be time to figure out what’s going on and what can be done.

Turns out, women experience sexual dysfunction more than men, particularly once they are post menopausal. That may mean they’re just not interested in sex, or it may mean something prevents them from reach climax. That may be things out of their control, such as changes in hormones, or it may mean that as they age, they need more assistance in reaching orgasm. Chronic medical conditions also play a role, as does an unhealthy lifestyle.

Whatever the manifestation or the reason, there are steps that women can take to regain both interest in and arousal by sex, and this graphic can help.
