Sexual health is not something that most patients are comfortable talking openly with their doctor about. In a recent U.S. study of 2,207 women between the ages of 30 and 70, researchers found that 36 percent had low sexual desire. Sexual health can affect you emotionally, physically, mentally, and socially. Both men and women can experience sexual dysfunction at any age and at any stage in their lifetime. There are many factors that affect sexual health such as chronic disease, emotional or physical trauma, hormone balance, cancer, prescription medications, tobacco and alcohol use, and many others.
Female sexual dysfunction is described by having one or more of these symptoms:
- Decrease in sexual motivation – does not care about sex or engaging in sexual activity
- Decrease in sexual desire – loss of the ability to be aroused
- Painful intercourse – pain during sexual activity, this can be caused by pelvic pain, dryness, trauma, or infection
- Inability to climax – loss of the ability to have an orgasm during sexual stimulation
