What is sexual arousal disorder

Sexual arousal disorder is often used to describe the lack or non-existence of sexual desire in women. Those who have sexual arousal disorder, are not stimulated by normal sexual stimulants.In addition, they do not attain or maintain sexual responses that come from sexual arousal. What is sexual arousal disorder in men? this is commonly known as erectile dysfunction or ED.


The lack of response from sexual stimulation comes in many forms. It can be subjective (an absence of mental and emotional stimulation) or it can be physical.
For women, physical symptoms include

  • Lack of vaginal swelling
  • Dilation
  • Genital throbbing
  • Wetness
  • Nipple sensation

When women are sexually stimulated, they usually feel both sexually excited (emotionally and mentally) while also undergoing physical sensations, like the ones mentioned above.


Causes of sexual arousal disorder are not simply because of a lack of desire but can be triggered by psychological and emotional factors. This includes

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Anger

Physical factors such as hormonal imbalance, circulatory issues, and nerve damage can also be the catalyst for sexual arousal disorder.
These physical factors can be the result of medications that alter the central nervous system.
