Why would I be suffering from Female Sexual Dysfunction?

Female sexuality is a process that evolves throughout life, starting with recognizing and learning own body and its functions, to developing sexual feeling and desires, to sexual practice with preferences for a partner and for sexual style.  The different life cycles will determine and characterize female sexuality under the influence of life events, hormones, relationships, and personal development.

With the mind being the female’s prime sexual controller, female sexual interaction is a state of agreement between body and mind.  Any interruption of this delicate balance may lead to sexual dysfunction.

Sadly, female sexuality is still largely viewed and treated utilizing the male model, disregarding the fact that women are not a version of men and must, therefore, be understood and managed from their own perspective.  Because of that, women often suffer in silence as they are reluctant to discuss this sensitive topic with their friends and healthcare providers in fear of embarrassment and dismissal.  And lastly, medical insurance does always cover female sexual dysfunction.  All these must change!

What can go wrong?

Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) is typically the result of factors such as

  • Lack of interest

  • Physical fatigue

  • Dislike of partner

  • Feelings of being forced to “do it”

  • Feelings of guilt, fear, shame, or inadequacy

  • Inability to say NO, or to speak up about sexual preferences

  • Past negative experiences or memories

  • Partner’s infidelity

  • Competition with the sexual model in the media

  • Inability to shut down the ‘thinking mind’

  • Various medical, dermatological, physical causes

In January 2010, ACOG District II (American College of Obstetric and Gynecology, New York District) formed a task force of women’s health experts to create this educational resource guide focusing on female sexual dysfunction (FSD).

The goal of this guide is to heighten ob-gyns’ awareness of FSD, proper assessment methods and treatments, as well as the importance of sensitive and honest patient- provider dialogue.  The educational content for this guide was shaped by a recent survey of ob-gyns, literature review and task force consensus.

We were privileged to be members of this very important project and are delighted to make it available to all.
