Abstract

Abstract: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) is a complex biopsychosocial phenomenon. Screening, identifying and managing urogenital and sexual symptoms often result in significant improvement in women’s quality of life. Providers must proactively question patients about possible presence of FSD. When a sexual problem is present, identify the type of FSD, counsel patients on the appropriate approaches to treatment. No single therapeutic approach is effective in treating all types of FSD.
