What is Female Sexual Dysfunction?
Lack of sexual motivation or desire. Painful intercouse. No sexual climax.
These symptoms may be signs of sexual dysfunction. Sexual dysfunction is a serious health issue and it can decline one’s quality of life. While it is more often associated with men, women suffer from it too.
Let’s take a look at Mayo Clinic’s description of female sexual dysfunction:
Persistent, recurrent problems with sexual response, desire, orgasm or pain — that distress you or strain your relationship with your partner — are known as sexual dysfunction. Female sexual dysfunction can occur at any stage of life. It can occur only in certain sexual situations or in all sexual situations, and may occur throughout one’s life.
Sexual response is not just about attractiveness or love or attentiveness. It is complex and mixes physiology, emotions, experiences, beliefs, lifestyle and relationships. When any of those components is disrupted, it can affect sexual desire, arousal, and satisfaction.
Types of Female Sexual Dysfunction
Symptoms vary depending on what type of sexual dysfunction you’re experiencing:
- Lack of sexual desire. This most common of female sexual dysfunctions involves a lack of sexual interest and willingness to be sexual.
- Sexual arousal disorder. Your desire for sex might be intact, but you have difficulty with arousal or are unable to become aroused or maintain arousal during sexual activity.
- Orgasmic disorder. You have persistent or recurrent difficulty in achieving orgasm.
- Sexual pain disorder. You have pain associated with sexual intercourse
