Abstract

There have been limited literature reports concerning the epidemiological characteristics of female patients who present for initial evaluation of sexual health problems to an outpatient sexual health clinic. This study is a single-institution, retrospective, IRB-approved, observational assessment of 250 female patients undergoing management for sexual dysfunction. In our clinic, women with sexual dysfunction were, in general, young, healthy, and free of vascular risk factors; complained of an acquired multidimensional combination of decreased desire, arousal, and orgasm; and had significantly low serum androgen levels. More research in the management of women with sexual health problems is needed.
