In brief: Many factors

There are many factors, but i would need to have more information about what sexual dysfunction you believe you have.
. There are many types of problems, such as low desire level, arousal problems, orgasm difficulties and pain disorders.

In brief: Many potential cause

Certainly hormonal imbalances can be causal - even testosterone deficiencies.
Medications, supplements, and vitamin introduction can be monitored chronologically to determine if involved. Sexual abuse at any time in life is not an uncommon cause. The quality of the ongoing relationship in general can also be definitive. Some are uncomfortable due to unfortunate role models, religious views, etc.

Female sexual dysfunction is very COMPLICATED. The brain is the biggest sexual organ in women, and MANY factors can affect arousal, desire, etc. The first and foremost action is to discuss with your partner. Seeing your gyn or a doctor that is comfortable and knowledgeable in this area is vital.
