Female Sexual Dysfunction – Risk Factors

December 2, 2021


There can be multiple contributing factors to sexual dysfunction, including hormonal changes, medical conditions, relationship issues, history of sexual abuse, and religious beliefs. Many women will ask, “Why did this happen to me?” Physical changes related to a woman’s reproductive life, such as the use of hormonal contraceptives, postpartum, breastfeeding, perimenopause, and menopause can cause discomfort during intercourse. Low estrogen levels can cause pain during sex due to vaginal dryness and reduce sexual desire. Certain medications affect sexual function, including antidepressants that can reduce sex drive, and hormonal birth control and treatments for conditions such as breast cancer that cause hormonal imbalance. Psychological causes of sexual dysfunction may be related to untreated anxiety or depression, stress, history of sexual abuse, or relationship problems with a partner.
