Female sexual dysfunction can prevent a woman from experiencing satisfaction during sex. It may affect your ability to become aroused, have an orgasm or enjoy sex without pain. Causes can be physical or psychological.
Sexual dysfunction in women of all sexual orientations correlates most strongly with poor mental health and with negative feelings for the partner(s), rather than with any serum hormone (or hormone metabolite) levels.
Normal changes with age and relationship duration must not be mistaken for desire/interest disorder. Desire disorder is diagnosed when there is a lack of anticipatory sexual desire, and desire (along with pleasure, arousal, and excitement) cannot be triggered during sexual activity and results in distress.
