Sexual dysfunction and female sexual health



 
 
There has been increased interest in female sexual health in the past few years largely due to the development of effective treatments and orgasm boosters. Physicians are now learning what happens with females during sexual excitement and orgasm.
 
With the knowledge of normal physiology during orgasm, physicians as well as therapists, can now help females with their sexual difficulties. Sexual wellness for a woman translates simply to being able to have a satisfying sex life. Sex can only be truly satisfying if an orgasm is achieved and there is no discomfort during sex.
 
Many women go throughout life never experiencing the joy of an orgasm let alone multiple ones. Sometimes sex can be uncomfortable if not downright painful. There are multiple reasons for female sexual health problems like this that we'll examine.
 
Female Sexual Dysfunction & Female Sexual Health:
 
Psychological female sexual health dysfunction tends to be relatively common. Mental and emotional contributors, which include stress, changes in body image, relationship issues, and changes in sexual expectations all contribute to psychogenic Female Sexual Health problems.
 
There is no physical damage holding back a satisfying sex life.
 
Female sexual dysfunction brought about by the use of anti depression drugs, antihistamines and beta blockers to reduce blood pressure could be considered a subset of this female sexual health problem.
 
A Neurogenic female sexual health problem is a term used when female sexual dysfunction is associated with a neuropathy, which interferes with sensations between the brain and the sexual organs.
 
Organic causes of female sexual dysfunction, which is extremely common, are more complex and varied that of men.
 
The female sexual health function is a complex interaction of hormonal events and psychosocial relationships. Apart from the emotional or psychological causes, atherosclerosis of the arteries still plays an important role as do physical changes which can include vaginal dryness or atrophy which in turn contributes to vaginal pain or irritation, fatigue, sleep disturbances, hot flashes, night sweats, and other general female sexual health concerns.
 
Some synthetic progestins commonly used for contraception have also been associated with a decrease in libido.
 
It's because of the complexity and the scope of the organic causes of female sexual health problems that drug companies haven't been successful in producing the female product equivalent to male Viagra. Female sexual health problems have to studied using a natural approach from many different areas.
 
Recovering Your Sex Life & Eliminating Female Sexual Health Problems:
 
If you think that your female sexual health problem is psychological and you can't determine the root cause or just aren't sure how to deal with it, then you should seek professional help. Talk with your physician or other female sexual health professional to find a good sex therapist in your area that could help you.
 
Other than unique devices such as vibrators that help to arouse you sexually, there are other products, although not very effective, that have been approved for use by women suffering from female sexual health problems.
 
These are for the most part suction devices designed to be placed over your clitoris to try to help force blood into the general area and to engorge the clitoris in readiness for sexual activity.
 
Not exactly a very effective or sexually exciting thing to do.
 
Although trials are underway with drugs to help eliminate female sexual health problems, the current feedback is not promising.
 
This is understandable because although there are some similarities in women's sexuality as in men, such as the need for the clitoris (as with the penis) to become engorged with blood in order to reach orgasm.
 
One problem however is that this is just one function of the female sexual response. Nonetheless you can be sure that research will continue and there is no doubt that at some time an approved drug for female sexual health problems will be released.
