Help for female sexual dysfunction from Katy doctor

“Sexual dysfunction” is a term used to describe a number of different problems. In males, issues such as erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation may occur. Female sexual dysfunction may involve vaginal spasms, painful intercourse, or a significant drop in libido. As much as sexual dysfunction has been associated with growing older, the conditions that fit into this term may affect women of all ages. If you live in the Katy area, you are not alone in managing sexual health. Contact the Katy office of Dr. Taryll Jenkins for the care you need.

Factors in the development of sexual dysfunction

There are several reasons why a woman may develop difficulty with libido or sexual performance. Some may be medical or physical in nature, while other factors are psychological or emotional. These may include:
  • Drug use
  • Side effect from medication. Decreased libido is a possible side effect of antidepressant medications
  • Hormonal imbalance during or after pregnancy and during peri-menopause and menopause
  • A stressful life event or chronic stress
  • Untreated depression or anxiety
  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes

Do you require care for sexual dysfunction?

One of the issues with obtaining proper care for sexual dysfunction is that a woman may question whether help is available for her concerns. Some of the symptoms of sexual dysfunction include:
  • Chronic urinary tract infections
  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Inability to become aroused
  • Inability or difficulty reaching climax
