Cancer of any of these organs or cancer treatment in this area can affect your sex life: If you feel comfortable, try touching each area lightly. Has your cancer treatment changed the look of your outer genitals in any way? During the years when a woman can have children, her ovaries take turns each month producing a ripe egg.
When the egg is released, it travels through the fallopian tube into the uterus.
An orgasm is a natural reflex, but most women need some experience in learning to trigger it. As she gets older, orgasms may take longer to reach, and more mental excitement and touching may be needed.
When a woman becomes sexually excited, the entire genital area swells.
The regular cycles the mature female body goes through each month are controlled by hormones.
The main hormones that may help a woman feel desire are called estrogens and androgens.
As a woman becomes sexually excited, her nervous system sends signals of pleasure to her brain. During orgasm, the muscles around the genitals contract in rhythm.
The muscle tension and release sends waves of pleasure through the genital area and sometimes over the entire body.
