Female sexual dysfunction
Female sexual dysfunction, or FSD, includes a variety of symptoms.
In women of all ages, FSD might show as:
- Lack of desire or arousal
- Painful sex and vaginal discomfort
- Absent orgasm
The National Institutes of Health reports 40 percent of women experience FSD. This percentage is even higher for cancer survivors.
Causes of FSD
In addition to cancer, FSD comes from
