When I was younger there were few things more annoying to me than being told something I was suffering with was "all in my head".  Whether I was in pain or beleaguered with self-doubt, my problems were very real to me, and being told they were imaginary or within my control was maddening. As I age, however, I realize how much of my own experience really is within my control, and a lot of it has to do with the dissipation of that very self-doubt I was once afflicted with. Given the age-related changes to my body I'm now experiencing and that my younger self dreaded, I'm surprised to say this positive self-determination extends to sex.

In healthy relationships, women with low sexual desire describe that while that initial “spark” that drives them to want sex isn’t always around when they want it to be, they typically enjoy sex once they get going.

To better illustrate this point, I have made up a case of a woman with primary anorgasmia. This is when a woman has never been able to achieve an orgasm, not for a lack of trying.

When messages like this are so pervasive in popular culture and media, it's not surprising that many women who are nearing or experiencing menopause feel bad about their bodies and their relationships.
