Sexual Dysfunction - Women

Sexual Dysfunction - Women: As female sexual dysfunction has many possible symptoms and causes, treatment varies. Communicating your concerns and understanding your body and it's normal response to sexual activity are important steps toward gaining sexual satisfaction.

Women with sexual concerns most often benefit from a combined treatment approach that addresses medical as well as relationship and emotional issues. Effective treatment for sexual dysfunction often requires addressing an underlying medical condition or hormonal change.

To establish the cause of sexual dysfunction, a doctor or therapist will need to ask questions about your medical, sexual and social history. Your doctor can carry out tests for underlying medical conditions. If your problem is related to lack of hormones such as testosterone or oestrogen, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help. Treating other conditions such as diabetes or depression might also alleviate symptoms of sexual dysfunction. 

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal remedies
