So you’re not alone, and it’s not your fault: It’s more difficult for women to get and stay aroused because their sexual response cycle is non-linear, unlike men’s, says Brett Worly, M.D., an ob/gyn who specializes in women’s sexual health at the Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center. And everything from shifting hormones to stress to exhaustion to underlying relationship problems can influence that cycle.
