Relaxation Technique Might Improve Arousal in Women

A relaxation technique called autogenic training could help premenopausal women with sexual arousal, according to new research in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

More research is needed, but if further studies find the approach effective, it could be a viable treatment for a challenging condition.

Sexual arousal refers to the physical and psychological processes that start once a woman is sexually stimulated. For example, if her partner kisses or caresses her in a sexual way, blood flows to her vaginal walls, which become lubricated and ready for penetration. Her clitoris and labia fill with blood as well.

However, for some women, this process doesn’t happen as it should. They also might not feel mentally “turned on” by their partner.
