Sex Problems in Women Directory
Female sexual problems can be caused by physical factors -- such as a condition or medication -- or psychological factors -- such as anxiety and depression. These problems may be lack of desire, inability to become aroused, inability to orgasm, pain during sex, or more. Your doctor can perform a pelvic exam to try to identify any physical causes in the reproductive system. Sometimes hormones play a role, especially in cases where the woman is in or has gone through menopause or has had a hysterectomy. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how to identify sexual problems in women, how to treat those problems, and much more.
