Sexual Dysfunction Q & A

What is female sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction refers to recurrent problems with your sexual response that interfere with your romantic relationships. These issues may involve problems with arousal, desire, or your ability to experience pleasure and achieve orgasm during sex.

Many women experience some degree of sexual problems on occasion, while some suffer from these issues throughout life. Sexual dysfunction may arise only during specific situations, or it may affect you all the time.

What causes female sexual dysfunction?

Sexual arousal is a complex experience that involves physical, emotional, and lifestyle factors. Common causes of sexual dysfunction include:

  • Decreased estrogen
  • Breastfeeding
  • Menopause
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Painful intercourse
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Stress
  • History of sexual abuse
  • Relationship conflicts

Issues with any one of these components are enough to affect your sexual desire, arousal, or satisfaction.

What are the symptoms of sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction symptoms vary in type and severity from one woman to the next. Common symptoms of sexual dysfunction include:

  • Decreased sexual desire (libido)
  • Difficulty becoming aroused
  • Inability to achieve orgasm
  • Pain during sexual intercourse or activity

If any of these problems cause you concern or affect your relationship, the team at Coastal Obstetrics & Gynecology can help. They offer Viveve nonsurgical and non-hormonal treatment for female sexual dysfunction.

How do you diagnose and treat female sexual dysfunction?

First, the doctor performs a physical exam and reviews your medical history. She spends as much time as you need to discuss your particular concerns and sexual symptoms in order to determine the underlying cause of your sexual dysfunction.

If your sexual dysfunction is due to physical factors such as vaginal dryness or laxity, the doctor may recommend nonsurgical intimacy rejuvenation with Geneveve.

The Viveve system delivers radiofrequency energy deep into your vaginal tissues. This both improves blood flow and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Enhanced circulation restores vaginal lubrication while the collagen and elastin tighten and tone your vagina.

This results in pleasurable, pain-free sex in only one 30-minute treatment. Viveve doesn’t cause adverse side effects or require downtime for recovery. However, you should wait at least 48 hours before having sex.

To find out if Viveve is right for you, call Coastal Obstetrics & Gynecology or message us using our Klara system.
