Unfortunately, little attention is given to female sexual health. There are a variety of disorders that can cause a significant impact on quality of life for both a woman and her partner.
These disorders range from hypoactive sexual desire, to Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration disorder. These can be lifelong, acquired, new or situational.
Upon evaluation you can expect a comprehensive medical history, physical exam, validated questionnaires as well as collection of laboratory data. A hormonal evaluation is helpful to assess function of ovarian, pituitary and thyroid function. Vitamin D deficiency has also been associated with abnormal female sexual function.
Treatment of any sexual dysfunction is generally multifactorial. This can include medications, sexual therapy and sexual enhancement devices.
