What is sexual health?
Sexuality is an important element of a person’s overall health.
Sexual health means having the opportunity to make informed decisions about one’s sexual identity, orientation, and practices; having a healthy sexuality without coercion or violence; and being free from coercion, discrimination, abuse, harmful media messages and child sexual exploitation.
Sexual health for everyone means freedom from gender-based violence committed by anyone (e.g., domestic violence), including sexual activity that is coerced against someone's will.
Why is sexual health important?
Sexuality affects physical and mental health. This means that sexuality relates to many of the most important concerns for human beings.
Sexual health is also closely linked to overall health. Good sexual health can help prevent many sensitive health problems and even death from unsafe sexual practices.
What causes high sex drive in females?
In simple terms, a healthy body produces an abundance of hormones in the female reproductive system that creates sexual desire.
Lack of sexual desire can occur when something blocks the normal flow of hormones. This could be the reason for irregular menstrual periods, infertility or sexual weakness. Such problems should not be ignored just because a woman hasn't menstruated or had a period for some time now.
Another cause may have to do with physical health factors, such as thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalances that affect libido.
What foods make you hornier?
There is a wide range of food substances that stimulate the secretion of hormones in the body. These include amino acids, which are just about all of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
The most well-known stimulants are caffeine and tyrosine, but there are still more than 300 others.
Of course, these substances have to be taken in moderation so as not to damage one’s health.
What should I take for better sex?
Certain vitamins and minerals are important for maintaining general health.
Vitamin E plays a vital role in the production of sex hormones. It also helps to improve sexual desire. Moreover, it improves blood circulation in the body and alleviates symptoms of vaginal dryness.
