Women's Area - Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction in women is more common than we think
Half the female population suffers from pain during sex or a low sex drive at some point in their lives. Sexual dysfunction also comes in many forms, from a diminished libido, having problems reaching orgasm or pain during intercourse. As women get older and approach menopause, sexual dysfunction becomes more common.
There are many causes for sexual dysfunction, from changes in hormone levels to thyroid complications. In our experience, sexual dysfunction more commonly affects women in their late 30s and 40s, at a time when life becomes more stressful.
Ways we can help
There are a number of existing treatments which work to potentially cure or at least curb sexual dysfunction. Some are as easy as changing lifestyle habits, counselling, or using a lubricant or a device. Other problems are more entrenched and require medical treatment.
Whatever the cause, our experienced therapists work with you to explore your problems, identify the causes and discuss your progress over the course of your sessions. You may be given a programme of exercises to try at home, educational material to read or be taught specific techniques.
