Sexual Conditions Overview
In a culture which is overwhelmingly dominated by sex, it represents much more than just procreation or recreation. For many, sexuality is a building block for self-esteem and happiness. Decline in sexual desire can cause significant distress and can cause serious relationship issues by undermining physical and emotional intimacy. Decline in sexual desire can lead to psychological and physicaldistress.
Hypo-active sexual desire (low libido) is common among women of all ages and lifestyles.Many women are reluctant tospeak out about this severely distressing problem. They may feel inhibited by, social or cultural expectations. Sexual intimacy starts to take a back seat until the problem becomes overwhelming and starts to affect their relationships negatively.
There has been a proliferation of recent research and clinical interest in sexual pharmacology especially after the advent of Viagra. The launch of Sildenafil citrate (Viagra) for erectile dysfunction was a defining event in modern medicine. However, this did not help resolve the sexual problems that women experience. Decreased desire, painful sex, inability to achieve orgasm and other sexual problems which may stem from physical, emotional, physiological or cultural issues.
