Female sexual dysfunction is recurrent, persistent problems associated with desire, orgasm, and pain in sexual response.

Causes of Female Sexual Dysfunction

 A flux of hormones often leads to sexual dysfunction. Factors that can lead to sexual dysfunction include menopause, after childbirth, diabetes, cancer, blood or heart disease or cardiovascular disease.

  • Some medical conditions and medications lead to sexual dysfunction. The medical conditions include kidney failure, cancer, multiple sclerosis, bladder and heart diseases. Medications include chemotherapy drugs, antihistamine, antidepressants and blood pressure medications that lead to sexual dysfunction.
  • After menopause, estrogen levels decrease significantly. It leads to less sexual responsiveness and genital tissues. Estrogen increases blood flow to the genital tissues, after menopause, the flow of blood is reduced significantly hence blood flow to genital tissues is less making sexual arousal longer than normal. Women who are not sexually active have thin and less elastic lining of the vagina making sexual intercourse painful. Breastfeeding and after childbirth create a change in hormones, it creates a dry effect on the vagina, hence creating sexual dysfunction.
  • Social and psychological. History of sexual abuse and stress can lead to sexual dysfunction. Conflict between partners can also be a contributing factor.
