How to Handle Female Sexual Health Problems
Women’s sexual problems often take a backseat to the men’s sexual problems, especially in the last decade or so due to the launch & subsequent marketing blitz of Viagra which has created a lot of awareness about erectile dysfunction in men.
But it is important not lose sight of the fact that a lot of women suffer from some sort of sexual health problem during some time or another in their life. These can range from minor discomfort during intercourse to total loss of libido.
It is important for both men & women to realize that these problems are much more common than what they think they are & you should inform yourself about these conditions & know that there are various effective treatments ranging from counseling to medications or combination of both that can be availed.
The first step whenever you or your partner is facing a sex related problem is to contact a qualified sexologist or a sex therapist to discuss the problem. Overcoming the fear of embarrassment about your problem is key to be able to successfully treat it.
The cause for female sexual dysfunction may be psychological or physical & a good counselor or a doctor specializing in this field can properly diagnose & offer treatment.
Depending on the age, nature or severity of the problem, different type of treatment can be used ranging from counseling, use of proper lubricants, pelvic exercises, changes in any anti depressant medication, change of diet, general exercises & hormonal treatment etc.
It’s not only important to communicate about these problems with your health care professional but also with your partner & the woman’s partner needs to be understanding & supportive of her & help her get & use the treatment as specified by the doctor & to never self medicate.
Remember most female sexual health problems are treatable & there is no need for you or your partner to suffer unnecessarily, because problems in your sexual life are bound to spill over in your normal life & pose even more problems in your relationship & cause undue stress & tension.
