WOMEN'S SEXUAL HEALTH

Until recently, little attention has been focused on female sexual function despite that it is an issue confronting 30-70% of women.

Just as occurs in male ED, there are several factors that are responsible for this. Abnormalities in hormone levels, blood flow, nerve function and psychological function can all affect female sexual response.

Female sexual dysfunction has been classified into 4 categories:
1. Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) – lack of interest in sex.
2. Sexual arousal disorder – the inability to maintain sexual excitement, which includes diminished vaginal lubrication, decreased sensation, decreased blood flow, decreased vaginal relaxation.
3. Orgasmic disorder – difficulty, delay, or absence of orgasm after sufficient stimulation and arousal.
4. Sexual pain disorders, which include: painful sex and vaginal muscle spasm, which interferes with vaginal penetration.

Treatment focuses on the underlying cause (or causes) for these issues, whether they are anatomical (rectocele / cystocele), hormonal (decreased estrogen and testosterone), medication related (SSRI’s), neurological (injuries and diabetes), related to blood flow (high blood pressure, smoking, DM, and high cholesterol) or psychological (depression, anxiety, hx of trauma).
