Female sexuality is a complicated process, influenced by psychological and physical factors. A woman’s attitudes toward her body, the sexual act, and her partner can cause sexual dysfunction. Physical factors such as brain function, the health of the circulatory system, and hormone levels are also major influences.
Experts categorize sexual dysfunction as one or more of the following:
- Decreased libido, or sexual desire
- Orgasmic disorder, such as anorgasmia, or lack of orgasm
- Painful intercourse, or dyspareunia
- Vaginal dryness, or decreased lubrication
