Signs of Poor Sexual Health

no sexLack of Sexual attraction

Sometimes one might feel less attracted to the significant other, and the idea of having sexual contact with him or her might make you sick. You think you are in love, but your feelings say otherwise. Loss of sexual attraction can be caused by several conditions and factors such as aging, weight changes or even the boredom of having to sleep with a single person for a long period. Sometimes it is hard to control the feeling of not wanting to have sex with your partner. However, when you hold or kiss, you might just not be in the mood for sex.

No chemistry

Not to be confused with lack of sexual attraction. You might feel that there is no chemistry between you and your partner, which could lead to poor performance in bed or avoiding sex completely. Most sex problems such as low libido or erectile dysfunction can be fixed, either through natural methods or medications, but there are no known therapies or pills out there that can cure the chemistry between couples.  If your partner connects with you mainly to have sex, make love, it’s probably indicative of a bigger problem. While there are several ways you can use to bring passion in the bedroom, sometimes you need to admit that the chemistry between you and your partner is little or nothing.

Feeling uncomfortable and lack of confidence

Are you feeling uncomfortable when around your partner? Are you lacking the confidence to talk with your partner freely? This is one of the major signs of poor sexual health. Instead of your partner bringing out the confidence in you, he or she causes you to feel lost or out of place. No matter how you try to make some nice comments, you find that your partner doesn’t find the comment to be interesting or amusing. This might cause a strained relationship between you two or even a breakup. In most cases, you might be compelled to end the relationship due to the fact that you are unable to regain your sexual self-confidence.
