Can female sexual dysfunction be cured?

ANSWER

The success of treatment for female sexual dysfunction depends on the underlying cause of the problem. The outlook is good for dysfunction that is related to a treatable or reversible physical condition. Mild dysfunction that's related to stress, fear, or anxiety often can be successfully treated with counseling, education, and better communication between partners.
