Sexual Dysfunction & Low Libido in Women
Many women report some fluctuation in their sexual function throughout their lives. The realm of sexual dysfunction and low libido in women can be multifaceted and hard for patients to bring up to their providers. Whether it is caused by an underlying health condition, psychological problems, or stress, it requires individual care and management of your unique health issue.
Such problems in women’s sexual dysfunction can include:
- Dyspareunia (painful sex)
- Inability to reach orgasm
- Low libido (low sexual desire and/or arousal)
- Postmenopausal vaginal dryness or changes
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact Consultants in Women’s Healthcare to discuss your options with our staff.
Possible Causes of Low Libido in Women
Low libido in women often stems from psychological factors, such as anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. However, there can also be a physical component to sexual dysfunction. For instance, genitourinary syndrome during menopause can cause discomfort during sex due to vaginal dryness and shrinking of the vagina. This is often the result of a lack of hormones present after a women’s menopausal years. Regardless of the cause, the providers at Consultants in Women’s Healthcare are committed to helping you understand and find a solution to sexual dysfunction. Some possible diagnostic options include asking about medical and sexual history, blood testing for various medical disorders, and pelvic examination to check for signs of physical changes that may be contributing to low libido.
