Sexual Problems in Women

When a woman has persistent problems with sex, such as pain or libido problems, it is known as female sexual dysfunction (FSD). Many women will have problems with sexual activity at some stage of their life. Around a third of young and middle-aged women are affected by sexual problems. 

Issues associated with FSD include a low sex drive, pain during sex, and orgasm problems. A low sex drive might also be known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).

FSD can be caused by a number of factors. These include medical conditions like diabetes, psychological issues like depression and a history of trauma, and hormonal changes such as oestrogen loss after the menopause. It can also arise from relationship problems.

According to the Sexual Advice Association, investigations into sexual problems in women should look at both physical and/or psychological causes. A sexual health doctor or counsellor can ascertain the underlying causes behind a sexual problem and can recommend the appropriate treatment.

Women who experience FSD problems like a low libido may look to the internet for advice. Through this research, some people hear about the Viagra pill for women.

Does Viagra work for women with FSD?

Viagra is a well-known drug used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. However, Viagra is only licensed for men and there is currently no Viagra for women. There is no strong evidence that Viagra can improve symptoms of FSD in women.
