Sexual Dysfunction Q & A

What is sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction in women refers to persistent problems that prevent you from enjoying sexual activity. Sexual dysfunction can affect women in many different ways, including:

Lack of desire

This is the most prevalent form of sexual dysfunction, and it refers to the lack of desire or interest in having sex.

Sexual arousal disorder

If you want to have sex, but your body just doesn’t respond, you may have a problem with arousal.

Orgasmic disorder

If your libido is intact and you’re able to become sexually aroused, but you have issues achieving an orgasm, an orgasmic disorder may be the source of your sexual dysfunction.

Sexual pain

This includes experiencing pain at any point during sexual activity.

What causes sexual dysfunction?

When it comes to sexual dysfunction, for both men and women, the issue can be terribly complicated because there are a number of factors that may play a role that fall under both your mental and physical health. For example, you may have a physical or anatomical problem that prevents you from enjoying sex, or your problem may stem from previous abuse or anxiety and depression.

Hormones also play a significant role in your sexual health, and they are on a constant roller coaster ride throughout your life, ebbing and flowing at different stages.

The bottom line is that there are many reasons why you may not be able to enjoy sexual relations, and Dr. Gray or Dr. Maslyak work with you to diagnose and treat the underlying problem.

How is sexual dysfunction treated?

When you see your doctor at Women to Women OB GYN Care, they first sit down with you to review your symptoms to get a better idea of where to start. Rest assured, the doctors bring compassion and understanding to the problem of sexual dysfunction, and they leave no stone unturned when it comes to helping you find a solution.

  • Counseling

Often, the issue may require a multipronged approach using a combination of therapies.
