Women’s Sexual Health
Keep Glowing Medical Spa
Community studies have shown that 43 – 63% of women experience some type of sexual dysfunction in their lifetime. Due to the sensitivity of the subject, women can be hesitant to discuss these problems with their doctor or significant other.
Physical connection and physical bonds are just as important as emotional ones in our lives, this remains true no matter our age. Studies have shown that couples who have regular sex enjoy happier, healthier, longer lives with stronger and longer-lasting relationships.
Sexual dysfunction in females can be a result of physical causes, such as hormonal imbalances or menopause, or psychological causes, such as work related stress and/or anxiety, depression, or marital/relationship problems.
Don’t Let Sexual Dysfunction Become Your New Normal
Females are more likely to “dismiss” sexual dysfunction as their symptoms may not be as physically noticeable when compared to males. No one, male or female, should dismiss any symptom that makes them feel less than their best, this goes for symptoms of sexual dysfunction as well.
The Mayo Clinic breaks female sexual dysfunction into 3 categories:
Low sexual desire: This most common of female sexual dysfunctions involves a lack of sexual interest and willingness to be sexual.
Sexual arousal disorder: The desire for sex might be intact, but there is difficulty with arousal or are inability to become aroused or maintain arousal during sexual activity.
Orgasmic disorder: There are persistent or recurrent difficulty in achieving orgasm after sufficient sexual arousal and ongoing stimulation.
Sexual pain disorder: There is pain associated with sexual stimulation or vaginal contact.
Some of the most common symptoms of female sexual dysfunction include:
• Vaginal dryness
• Decreased libido
• Loss of sexual desire
• Inability to orgasm/delayed orgasm
• Painful intercourse
• Lack of stimulation
• Decreased vaginal sensitivity
