Sexual Health Issues for Women

Sexual health issues have a profound effect on a patient’s quality of life, including objectively measured decreases in physical satisfaction, emotional satisfaction, and general happiness. Sexual problems are associated with feelings of isolation, low self-esteem and depression, and frequently impact patients’ relationships, mood state and quality of life. It is estimated that 20 to 30 million American men suffer from sexual health issues. Despite significant progress in basic sexual medicine research and clinical therapies in recent years, sexual problems remain among the most frequently overlooked and mismanaged patient complaints. Few healthcare professionals have the opportunity to be trained in the diagnosis and treatment of sexual dysfunction.
