Sexual health issues are a delicate topic for many women, but they’re quite common. Female sexual dysfunction affects roughly 40% of women at some point in their lives. The first step to regaining your sexual health is talking to a qualified physician. Board-certified physician Dr. Raj Singh at HEALOR Primary Care in Las Vegas, NV helps patients pinpoint the causes of female sexual dysfunction and helps identify solutions.
It's often easier for patients to start a conversation about sexual health with their physician if they know more about potential conditions and causes. Below, we’ll discuss the types of female sexual dysfunction and what causes them.
What is female sexual dysfunction?
Female sexual dysfunction is a general term that encompasses a variety of conditions that interfere with a satisfying sex life. These conditions are characterized by symptoms that are persistent and distressing.
Sexual dysfunction is increasingly being studied in women now that researchers recognize it’s so common, but little attention was paid in the past to women’s inability to have enjoyable sex.
