Female sexual health dysfunction : a psychologic problem ??

Female sexual health dysfunction may involve a reduction in sex drive, aversion to sexual activity, difficulty becoming aroused, inability to achieve orgasm, or pain with sexual activity or intercourse.

Traditionally, sexual dysfunction in women was thought to be largely due to psychologic problems. Recent research is beginning to uncover many organic causes for sexual problems in women. While many sexual problems have an underlying psychologic component, possible organic causes must not be ruled out in the initial investigation.

Home care of female sexual health dysfunction depends on the cause. Family planning and birth control may be helpful for problems caused by a fear of pregnancy. Call your health care provider if the problem is persistent or accompanied by other unexplained symptoms. Your health care provider will perform a physical examination, which may include a pelvic exam. Your provider may ask detailed questions about relationships, current sexual practices, attitudes towards sex, medications you may be taking, and other possible symptoms.

Treatment for female sexual health dysfunction
