The term sexual dysfunction refers to a problem in a person’s sexual response cycle. These problems may relate to desire or the motivation to have sex, reaching a climax, or not feeling emotional resolution after sex. Sexual dysfunction is common in women. Approximately 43% of women report experiencing symptoms of sexual dysfunction.
Treatment of sexual dysfunction has become more effective for women because of the renewed attention in the medical and science industries. Women are also becoming more aware of their bodies and feel more comfortable speaking openly about sex.
Female sexuality is highly complex, and women have unique health requirements. Women who don’t experience a healthy sex life may have problems ranging from psychological factors to sexually transmitted diseases. Cookie-cutter solutions don’t work because each woman is an individual, and her health care solutions must be unique to her.
Menopause can also contribute to sexual dysfunction. Changes in hormone levels during menopause can lead to vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, low arousal, and additional issues like stress, depression and anxiety, and bladder control problems.
Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is a treatment used to increase hormone levels that have been diminished by menopause. Hormones most commonly used in this treatment are estrogens and progestogens. This has been shown to be an effective treatment for women who suffer from vaginal dryness, hot flashes, vaginal atrophy, and other sexual dysfunctions.
