What Is Sexual Medicine?
‘Sexual medicine’ is the field of medicine concerned with human sexuality and its associated disorders. It takes into account aspects of a person’s physical, psychological and social well-being, as well as aspects of a relationship, where applicable. Prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation are all parts of this specific branch of medicine, as is the impact of other medical conditions and/or their treatments on sexual function and physical intimacy.
How Common Are Women’s Sexual Problems?
If you are a woman experiencing symptoms impacting your sexual health, it is important to remember that half of women in the U.S. experience some sort of symptom or disorder that affects her sexual health at some time in their lives. Such a high prevalence rate can be attributed to the many hormonal changes that women undergo over the course of their lifetime, but many other causes also exist. Stress, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, thyroid issues, anxiety, depression and the medications used to treat these conditions have all been known to interfere with a woman’s sexual desire, response and experience.
Common Sexual Complaints
- A loss of sexual desire is often due to hormonal changes, stress, fatigue, depression or medical treatments.
- An inability to become aroused is often associated with inadequate vaginal lubrication, poor physical or mental stimulation, and/or disorders with blood flow.
- A lack of orgasm is often due to a lack of physical stimulation, chronic illness, and/or medical treatments.
- Painful intercourse (also known as dyspareunia) can be caused by inflammation, poor vaginal lubrication, the presence of scar tissue and endometriosis.
- Vulvovaginal disorders and chronic vulvar burning often due to ongoing infection, allergic reactions or several other causes.
