Sexual Dysfunction is A persistent reoccurring problems with sexual pain, response, or desire.
Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia) is pain or discomfort in a woman's labial, vaginal, or pelvic areas during or immediately following sexual intercourse.
Vulvodynia is a chronic pain syndrome that affects the vulvar area and occurs without an identifiable cause. Symptoms typically include a feeling of burning or irritation.
Low libido, known in medical terms as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) affects women of all ages. A recent study showed that nearly 1/3 of all women suffer from HSDD and it is not all in their heads.
The number of women who experience pain during intercourse is unknown because the symptoms vary. Also both doctors and women fail to freely discuss sexual practices and health. A recent study showed that more that 43% of women suffer with sexual issues and more than 20% of them suffer from sexual pain. Yet a very small percent talk to a physician about their pain and struggles.
Unlike men's main sexual complaint, erectile dysfunction, women's sexual disorders are caused by a combination of mental and physical factors which aren't likely to be cured by merely popping a pill. But help is out there and it continues to get stronger with research and education.
