Female Sexual Arousal Disorder

Sexual arousal disorder is a disruption during any stage of the sexual response cycle (desire, arousal, orgasm, and resolution) that prevents the experience of satisfaction through sexual activity. A woman with this disorder may be interested in sexual intercourse but has difficulty becoming stimulated long enough to go through with it. She will feel an inability to attain or maintain typical responses to sexual arousal. This condition is different than Low desire disorder.


Contrary to popular belief, the disorder is not always caused from a lack of sexual arousal. Possible causes of the disorder include psychological and emotional factors, such as depression, anger, and stress; relationship factors, such as conflict or lack of trust; medical factors, such as depleted hormones, reduced regional blood flow, and nerve damage; and drug use. The lack of sexual arousal may be due to a lack of sexual desire for the current partner (i.e., situational).
