A quarter of women are affected by FSD at some point in their lives. Find out the facts now!
Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) disorder covers four conditions: lack of sensitivity or ability to be aroused, called female sexual arousal disorder; inability to have an orgasm, known as female orgasmic disorder; and pain during sex (which may be due to vulvodynia, endometriosis, or cystitis).
It afflicts up to a quarter of women at some point in their lives. The inability to climax can lead to a build-up of blood around the womb, heavy bleeding and even back pain. If you have trouble becoming aroused, find sex painful and don’t lubricate, then speak to your doctor for diagnosis and advice.
