    Understanding Female Sexual Problems -- Prevention

    If you're a woman wanting to prevent sexual problems, avoid alcohol and recreational drugs that can lessen sexual desire or impair your sexual response. Keep existing medical conditions such as diabetes under control.

    Discuss side effects of medications with your doctor or pharmacist in case an alternative with fewer sexual effects is available.
