A persistent, recurrent problem with sexual response or desire, which creates personal stress and strains your relationship with your partner, is medically known as female sexual dysfunction. Sexual response involves a complex interaction of physiology, emotions, experiences, beliefs, lifestyle and relationships. A disruption of any of these components can affect sexual drive, arousal and/or satisfaction.
It is common for women of all ages to experience sexual dysfunction at some point in their lives. FSD can occur at any time and can a problematic symptom or it can be an ongoing condition that requires medical intervention. Happily, female sexual dysfunction can be successfully treated allowing a woman to regain her self-confidence and return to an active lifestyle.
