Female Sexual Dysfunction
The best care
Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is not an uncommon problem and may be consistent throughout a woman's life. Depending on each individual, it can happen at several stages during one’s life and sometimes can vary between sexual situations. Unlike men's erectile function, women’s sexual function is a complex integration of emotions, experiences, relationships, hormonal status, and medication intake. Therefore, if there is any interplay between these issues, sexual dysfunction can be prolonged until appropriate diagnosis and treatment are initiated.
Female sexual dysfunction is caused by several risk factors, and these must be disclosed honestly when being evaluated by your health care specialist who has experience in these matters.
Your Urologist will be checking into each of these factors during your initial evaluation process.
Use of certain medications such as antidepressants or antihypertensives
Neurological problems such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, or spinal cord injury
Gynecological issues such as pelvic infections, prior pelvic surgery, and so forth
Medical conditions such as heart disease, anxiety, or depression
Relationship issues, psychological distress, or sexual abuse
Hormonal issues, which can lead to vaginal dryness and decreased sexual libido
