About

Female sexual dysfunction is defined as persistent and recurrent problems with sexual response or desire seen in women.

Women experience problems with sexual function at some point in their lives. Sexual dysfunction is quite common affecting almost 30-50% of women globally.

Female Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual activity incorporates interpersonal relationships, each partner bringing unique attitudes, needs and responses into the coupling. A breakdown in any of these areas may lead to sexual dysfunction. This can be a lifelong problem, or it can happen later in life.

Female sexual dysfunction may be due to a number of causes. Traumatic injury to the genitals or pelvic region, surgical intervention, extensive bike riding, underlying medical conditions, hormonal imbalance, and medications can cause sexual dysfunction.

The American Psychological Association (APA) classifies female sexual problems as-

► Mental disorder - loss of sexual desire or arousal
► Discomfort during intercourse
► Diminished blood flow to the vagina
► Trauma-related aversion to sex
► Inability to achieve orgasm

Almost all causes of sexual dysfunction are treatable. Communicating the concerns and understanding onesí body and its normal response to sexual activity are important steps toward gaining sexual satisfaction.

Well it's about time that they have something for women, when I told my doctor about my problem, I was told that they could not help, because there was nothing that could be done about it, I would just have to learn to live with it and my doctor at that time was a female. I look forward to trying this new durg.

Even our collegues in modern medicine are not aware of this speciality known as SEXUAL MEDICINE. You should consult a qualified Consultant in Sexual Medicine

Surrounded by unrealistic portrayals of female sexuality in the media, women often conclude that they are abnormal when they are, in fact, facing a very normal dilemma with sex and their relationships. Instead of reassuring women, sex information today often implies that woman's sexual experiences are dysfunctional. It is also implied that clitoral stimulation solves any problem with orgasm but the truth is that some completely normal women never orgasm with a partner by any means.

Dear Jehnavi,

Female Sexual could be related mostly with the partner's sexual skills and awaareness. Females are conidered as MOON, which is useful at night. Males do not consider female's sexul feelings.
