What is Female Sexual Dysfunction?

Hello Lovelies,

If you're like me, you've probably been hearing a lot about "Female Sexual Dysfunction." And since I am not a physician, I can't really speak to the medical reasons as to why one woman might feel a loss of sexual interest and another woman doesn't. What I can say is that we are all different, and if you think you suffer from an organic medically based reason for a lack of sexual interest, then don't hesitate to contact your physician. These days medical professionals have so many ways to address your specific issue, and they can provide some mental, emotional, and physical relief if you have been wondering about where you sit on the "normal" scale.

Here are some facts as provided by our good friends at O'My:

Female Sexual Dysfunction or Dissatisfaction: defined by urologists, behavioral
scientists and psychologists as a loss of interest in sex and the inability to
become aroused or achieve orgasm when participating in sex. Sexual
dissatisfaction is a symptomatic intimacy problem in which one or both partners
fail to communicat their needs.

More facts from O'My:
  • 43% of women suffer from some type of sexual dysfunction

  • Most commonly occurs in premenopausal women 25-50

  • Long-term medical diseases, minor ailments, medications and psychosocial difficulties are factors that can impact a woman's ability to achieve orgasm

  • Often linked to depression and/or physical pain
