Abstract

The study of sexual health is not a new concept in western medicine. However, focusing on women's sexual health and specifically on female sexual dysfunction has become a new trend. What has followed has been a genuine attempt by the medical community to define normal sexual health for women, as well as female sexual dysfunction and to develop efficacious treatment protocols for women with sexual dysfunction. Despite having its own definition, it is important to note that diagnosing an isolated dysfunction like female sexual arousal disorder is often difficult due to the dynamic nature of a woman's sexual response. The use of a treatment, platform, however should be the foundation of the treatment.
