Whether the woman is willing to deliberately find or be receptive to sexual stimuli, depends on any factors that affect her motivation, many other factors will influence her arousability, notable the processing of sexual information in her mind. Both psychological and biological factors are involved they are inherently blended. External and internal stressors alter the immune system, neurological and hormonal physiology.
If the woman becomes aroused and desires and she finds the state enjoyable, the arousal may increase in intensity and she senses a need for sexual satisfaction. If the outcome is positive both physically and emotionally, future sexual motivation is increased. This type of cycle underscores the biopsychosocial nature of sexual function of a woman and thereof dysfunction which is important for understanding the potential treatment protocols in female sexual dysfunctions.
Since it is impossible to specify with any degree of precision when a sexual problem or complaint should be diagnosed as a “dysfunction”, it is crucial that the clinician’s judgment be taken into account in addition to the women’s report of distress. Contextual and interpersonal factors must be considered in order to make a complete diagnosis.
Female Sexual Dysfunction involves any problem from any phase of sexual response cycle that prevents an individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity. It Includes disorder of desire, arousal, orgasm and pain.
