For some patients, preventing female sexual dysfunction is accomplished through open communication, healthy body image and wellness care.
Perhaps the first prevention technique is to understand any side effects caused by the medications you’re taking. Speak with your doctor if you suspect your medication is reducing your sexual drive. Also, avoid alcohol and drug abuse.
Developing a healthy body image and open communication regarding sexual intercourse may reduce anxiety and fear. Partners should be able to express preferences and fears openly. For patients who have experienced sexual trauma, such as sexual abuse or rape, Florida Hospital encourages her to seek psychiatric advice.
