Many aspects of a woman’s life can be affected by sexual problems, including relationships and self-worth. If you’re having persistent physical or emotional problems with sex, don’t be hesitant to talk with us about it. We’re here to listen and help.
Female sexual dysfunction, also known as hypoactive sexual arousal and desire disorder, is a common problem that affects women of all ages. Symptoms include a lack of sexual desire, problems with arousal, difficulty achieving orgasm, or pain during intercourse. Factors that may contribute to female sexual problems include certain medications, fluctuation of hormones, illnesses like diabetes or heart disease, stress, or untreated anxiety or depression.
If you and your partner are affected by ongoing sexual problems, treatment is available. Roberta Renzelli-Cain, DO, WVU Medicine obstetrician and gynecologist, specializes in this area. Treatment varies based on each woman’s individual needs and may include a combination of lifestyle changes, counseling, or hormone therapy. Communicate openly with your provider to establish the best
treatment plan for you.
