Not only time and mood but several other factors can interfere with your sex life. Right from pain during the sex to infection in genitals, here are seven common health problems that might stop you from having sex.
Vaginal yeast infections: Caused by Candida Albicans, vaginal yeast infection is quite common. It causes smelly vagina and discharge of thick white liquid. It also leads to itching, swelling and irritation.
Trichomoniasis: A sexually transmitted disease (STD), trichomoniasis is caused by a parasite which affects the vagina and spreads through sexual intercourse. The symptoms include burning, redness of the genitals and discomfort during urination.
PID (pelvic inflammatory disease): An infection of female genital tracts which can be caused by bacteria, virus or worms (in some cases). The typical signs of PID include fever, menstrual irregularities and pain in lower abdomen, which might hinder your sex life.
Genital warts: A viral infection caused by HPV (human papillomavirus), it appears as growths in the vagina, cervix and vulva, thereby making it difficult to involve in sexual intercourse.
UTIs: As urinary tract infection (UTI) manifests as pain in the lower abdomen, indulging in sex might further worsen your condition. Moreover, there are high chances of experiencing pain and burning sensation during sex.
Vaginismus: A common type of sexual dysfunction in women, vaginismus causes involuntary spasm of the muscles of the vagina. So when having sex, the sudden muscle contraction might lead to severe pain during penetrative sex.
Genital herpes: It causes blisters in the vagina and anus, thus making it difficult to indulge in sex. Caused due to herpes simplex virus (HSV), it can be transmitted through oral, vaginal and anal sex.
