In this four-part blog series, I invite you to explore the realities of Female Sexual Dysfunction and develop a little bit of pro-activeness on behalf of your sexual self. We’ll learn about the myths of desire, understand where medical interventions can help and when the power to heal really starts with the woman in charge – you.
Possibly one of the most troubling issues with the group of symptoms called “Female Sexual Dysfunction” is that you might be willing to brush them off as “simply getting older” or “losing your interest.” Your friends might say that it is just what is happening through menopause or perimenopause and there is nothing to be done.
This might be one place where knowing yourself and having someone like me on your side could really change things. Many factors go into a healthy sexuality including the body’s health, side effects from trauma or medicines, emotional stress or change, as well as the heart’s desires.
Sexuality and physical health can be closely related through menopause and perimenopause, but there are a lot of different factors that go into a healthy sexuality. Modern medicine can be combined with yoga, acupuncture and herbal treatments to rebuild your overall health. Remember that your sexual health is important to your satisfaction and happiness as a whole person and not everyone functions exactly the same.
Next we’ll discover the myths and truths about what FSD really looks like!
