How to Treat Female Sexual Dysfunction

Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is the most common type of sexual concern for many women. FSD does not imply a single problem; it is a combination of 4 issues that can prevent you from enjoying sex:

  • Low libido
  • A feeling of sexual coldness
  • Inability to reach orgasm
  • Pain during intercourse

The first problem itself can bring on the rest. If you don’t have the desire for sex, nothing on earth can arouse you sexually and take you to a pleasurable climax. Lack of sexual desire is medically called hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). This condition occurs mostly because of lack of testosterone production in the body. Surgical removal of your ovaries can suddenly decrease testosterone production, leading to desire problems and eventually to female sexual dysfunction. Testosterone is the hormone that regulates your libido and overall sexual responses and behaviours. When you are starved of this hormone, particularly at a young age, your sex life is likely to go for a toss.

But all is not that bad as yet. Female sexual dysfunction can be treated in a number of ways, including medication, oestrogen therapy, or psychological counseling. In HSDD, you can try transdermal testosterone patches to get this all-important hormone delivered to your bloodstream. The Intrinsa patch have created a buzz of excitement among women who suffer from lack of sexual desire because of testosterone deficiency. These patches are touted as artificial libido enhancers and have generated a lot of enthusiasm among sexually active women who waited long for their version of Viagra. But it is only logical to say that Intrinsa is not the female Viagra because it does not work in the same way as Viagra does, or with the same objective as Viagra has.

Female sexual dysfunction treatment has become very convenient and discreet after the invention of testosterone patches. You can wear an Intrinsa patch on your lower abdomen, shoulder or arms for 3-4 days and go about your daily tasks as normal. Clinical trials have shown that women using Intrinsa patch continuously for 4 weeks have experienced significant boost in their sexual desire. Long-term studies have revealed that women using the patch for 5 months can enjoy sex 3 times better than before. To make it work best, wear it on dry areas of your skin and never wear 2 patches on the same area. If you experience itching or any other skin conditions after using Intrinsa, remove it immediately and talk to your doctor.

Intrinsa patches are available only on prescription. So when you want to buy them online, you need to visit a registered online clinic and take a medical consultation. Based on your current and past health conditions, a doctor will decide if testosterone patches are suitable for you. Menopausal women should not use Intrinsa patches, neither should women who suffer from heart conditions or had breast cancer in the past. You may experience side effects such as nasal congestion, body aches or anxiety, but worry not, none of them should be a major cause for concern for you. Talk to your doctor if any side effect continues to bother you for long.
