Low Libido? Improve your Desire and Improve your Life: Part Two

Love for the vaginismus suffererWe’ve already gone over some ways to improve your libido after a vaginismus-induced period of sexual dormancy. It can all be generally summed up in a few words: just be healthy! Our next batch of libido-enhancing tips follow along that same line of thinking.

  • Being overweight can affect your sex drive in a few ways. First of all, if you don’t feel the best about your physique, then you aren’t going to feel sexy. Being overweight can also reduce essential blood flow to your sex organs.
  •  An overall healthy diet is important for your general health – and your sexual health. If you aren’t treating your body well, it will certainly respond accordingly. Fruits and vegetables are the cornerstone of a healthy diet – and they can work to improve your sexual appetite! The vitamins and antioxidants in these foods help maintain good blood flow.
  • Massage techniques are a great way to connect with your partner and ease your body into the idea of a sexual experience. They can really do wonders for arousal, particularly if you’re stressed or worried. Set the mood with soft lights and soothing music.

Having a healthy sex life after vaginismus treatment starts with having a healthy body and a healthy mindset. Feel free to share your experience in our Vaginismus MD forum.
