Happiness in conjugal life is based on an equal involvement of both partners in sex. In some cases, lack of interest or low libido in the female may be a roadblock to establishing intimacy. This is a psychological state of mind which is commonly known as frigidity.
In simple terms, frigidity is described as a condition in which the female experience difficulty in being aroused or remain emotionally cold despite the advances of the partner. This is more common than you may imagine, especially in females who live a high-stress life.
Emotional coldness: Due to frictions or dormancy in sex, partners often become aloof and do not exhibit the sparks that are observed in a sexually active partnership. With time, the desire to engage in sex decreases significantly to a point when there is no sex at all.
Past emotional trauma: Emotional traumas are difficult to heal. If a couple has been through emotionally scarring experiences in the past, it may take them time to re-establish the closeness in their relationship.
Bad behaviour: Behavioural issues such as anger, stress or physical violence are known issues that can take very long to forget.
Physical Ailments or Special conditions: Loss of libido could also be caused by insomnia, vaginal dryness, medicinal side effects,
