The desire for sex in women is far more complex than researchers had thought, according to a new study.
On the contrary, a woman’s relationship satisfaction and other psychosocial factors may play a more vital role than hormonal effects.
The study, which was conducted in Michigan, had asked participants about their desire for sex and sexual activity.
Hormones do not drive desire, the study shows.
Researchers also wanted to find out exactly what effect is had on sexual function as women go through menopause.
According to the report, researchers found women who naturally had higher levels of testosterone reported feeling sexual desire more frequently than women with low levels.
