Sex – Female Sexual Malfunctions

Posted on

90% of Female Sexual Dysfunction is Due to Low Testosterone and or Low Estrogen.

This week we are discussing what happens when women have sexual problems. In our society, women are messaged to believe that sexual issues are things that they should not talk about and that if they have problems sexually it is because something is wrong with sex. They are not taught that sex is a joyful, exciting, feel good experience for women and that women will want it and enjoy it. They are taught that sex can be bad and shame based and that women mainly have sex in order to have babies or to make their partners happy.

Dr. Maupin discusses why it is important for women who go to a physician, in particular, a gynecologist, to speak with that doctor about their sexuality and their sexual behaviors feelings and issues. If you do not tell the doctor, they may not ask and your issues will not be examined and resolved. It is incredibly important that women learn to speak up when visiting their doctors and tell them the areas they want to discuss and the things they want treatment for.

Dr. Maupin also speaks to the training of physicians when they are in medical school. She says that her training consisted of no more than a single day of training about female sexual function and dysfunction during her residency. She was taught about the mechanics of the female system and the operation of the sexual organs of the body, but she was not taught about sex and how or why things go wrong sexually. If she was going to specialize in this area of work she would need to seek out additional training and certifications. Most gynecologists do not do this, and yet they are the ones to whom women go when they have sexual issues.

The biggest problems that Dr. Maupin sees are lack of sexual drive, poor or non -existent orgasms, painful intercourse from lack of vaginal lubrication and deep pain from pelvic endometriosis, fibroids, and intra-abdominal scarring. The good news is that because of her focus on hormone replacement, she has learned that 90% of female dysfunction is due to low testosterone and or estrogen.

Listen to our conversation regarding sexual problems and how to identify and treat them. We pay particular emphasis to the need for a team approach. A woman will need her gynecologist and perhaps a specialist on sexual issues, possibly a psychiatrist or a good counselor. We need to look at physical issues, emotional issues, and relational issues when we look at the entirety of possible complications in sexual performance and experience.
