FEMALE SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION.
Women often experience changes in their libido and sexual performance as they age. While men experience these issues too (commonly referred to as erectile dysfunction) the changes that women go through, such as sexual dysfunction, are often more subtle and harder to identify as a hormonal or physical issue.
Sexual dysfunction can start as a woman reaches menopause (typically around the age of 50) or much earlier or later. Each woman has their own physical makeup, and their bodies will process and reflect changes differently. These are a few common symptoms that you may experience:
- Low libido or sexual desire levels
- High sexual desire levels but low physical arousal ability
- Problems reaching orgasm
- Pain or discomfort associated with sexual contact
You may experience just one of these problems or multiple problems at once. Other causes may be due to physical problems, hormonal imbalances, or from mental stress. Understanding the source of female sexual dysfunction is the first step toward developing a treatment plan.
HOW COMMON IS SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION?
Female sexual dysfunction is more common than most women realize, and it can occur at any stage of life. Many women do not report the problem because they do not think the condition is serious enough to merit treatment or are too embarrassed to talk about that aspect of their bodies.
Understanding the cause of sexual dysfunction and knowing there are treatment options out there can help women regain their sex lives and their connections with their partners.
