The symptoms of female sexual dysfunction can include lack of desire for sexual intercourse, an inability to enjoy sex, inadequate response to sexual stimulation, insufficient vaginal lubrication, or repeated failure to reach orgasm.
Inadequate response to sexual stimulation and difficulty or inability to reach orgasm is a common but complex problem in women. It is a problem that can have many different causes. Surveys indicate that 40 to 45% of all women suffer from some form of sexual dysfunction. This might be caused by illness or by lack of physical response from the sex organs, but may also be linked to psychological factors.
The female equivalent of male impotence or erectile dysfunction is known as Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD).
When men and women are sexually stimulated and become aroused, there is an enhanced flow of blood into their sexual organs and their genitals become engorged with blood. In females, this normally should result in:
Enlargement of the clitoris and surrounding tissues (comparable to a male penis erection)
Secretion of vaginal lubrication
Relaxation and widening of the vaginal opening to facilitate insertion of a penis for intercourse.
FSAD patients have the desire to have sex but their genital area fails to respond in the normal way, making sex painful or impossible.
Underlying Medical Condition
FSAD can result from various underlying medical conditions including:
- high blood pressure
- irritations, infections and growths in the vaginal area
- reactions to contraceptive devices.
Medications used to treat high blood pressure, peptic ulcers, depression or anxiety and cancer may also cause problems. Another factor is the physical, hormonal and emotional changes that occur during or after pregnancy or while breast feeding.
FSAD is also frequently linked to psychological factors, which may include:
- Relationship issues with the male partner
- Poor self-esteem
- Sexual abuse or incest
- Feelings of shame or guilt about sex
- Fear of pregnancy
- Stress and fatigue
