Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is a common condition affecting nearly half of all women.

FSD has received comparatively little attention relative to the research into and resources directed towards male erectile issues. Many reasons contribute to this neglect, including stigmas and stereotypes, the hesitancy of providers to initiate these conversations, and the reluctance of patients to seek care because of the perception that no effective treatment alternatives exist.

In order to effectively address FSD, a provider has to ask about and understand a woman’s concerns and priorities.
