"My wife has a headache every time I am romantic!"
"After the birth of my second son, my wife avoids me like plague..."
"Every thing was great before her surgery, the sparks were flying and all, but now there is nothing more to look forward to."
These testimonials from men aged 40 to 65 years reflect the suffering and misinterpretation men are exposed to if their partner has female sexual dysfunction (FSD). IN most cases, it is not only the men that suffer, as women feel guilt ridden for not wanting to have sex, but simply cannot muster the desire, thus relish in their own guilt. There is hope for these women however, as Procter & Gamble has introduced a treatment for female sexual dysfunction. Before we go on about this treatment, let’s take a closer look at the condition itself.
What is FSD?
Female sexual dysfunction or FSD as it is commonly known is a disorder that covers many sexual problems from hypoactive sexual desire disorder to vaginal dryness and pain. A number of factors may cause it, but the casualty is a diminished sex life. The effect of FSD on sex is drastic with problems stretching from mental conditions to marital problems. Many women suffer in silence while few try to find solutions. Some women buy potions and herbal meds for treatment thinking that their condition will improve. Until recently there hasn’t been a clinically proven treatment for FSD, especially not a product like Viagra or Cialis, making women feel somewhat ashamed or simply confused with the condition.
Causes of FSD
Sexual dysfunction in a woman is a complex problem and can be caused by physical factors, psychological factors, emotional reasons, previous experiences, environmental factors or a mix of more than one factor.
Some of the physical factors causing FSD are atherosclerosis, smoking, diabetes, dyslipidemia, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension and renal failure. Some prescription medications also lead to FSD.
Anxiety, stress, childhood issues, concerns about pregnancy and/or sexual health, confidence issues and body image, depression, religious beliefs about sex and sexual pleasure are other impediments that come in the way of healthy sexual relationship leading to sexual dysfunction in women. Sometimes, problems with husbands, family problems and other environmental problems cause FSD in women.
There is no treatment for FSD that is caused by psychological factors and environmental problems other than going to a psychologist or counsellor and sorting out the issues. However, if there are any other issues, you can talk to a doctor to find out if Intrinsa from stables of Procter & Gamble is for you.
How to treat FSD?
Intrinsa is the new treatment available to treat FSD. This treatment is meant for women, who have gone through a hysterectomy (surgery for removal of ovaries and/or womb), are not more than 65 years of age, have been receiving hormone replacement therapy or are distressed by their sexual condition. Postmenopausal women often lack sexual desire and are not able to get pleasure from sexual activities. Intrinsa will help women rectify this situation with the help of the active ingredient testosterone in it.
Which medicine is available for the treatment of FSD?
Apart from Intrinsa, there are no medicines available for FSD. Intrinsa is clinically proven and comes in a patch form unlike sexual dysfunction medications like Viagra and Cialis for men.
