    Medical science has known for a long time that when it comes to female sexual health and function, it’s the brain that’s chiefly responsible for the urge in question. The way that it happens hasn’t been precisely mapped out (the brain is a very complex bit of biology), but it’s thought that sexual desire comes about due to the interaction of certain chemicals (specific neurotransmitters and hormones) in the brain. When those chemicals aren’t properly balanced, sexual desire can take a hike.
