Problems in the bedroom are not limited to erectile dysfunction in men. From all the ads on TV for erectile dysfunction medications, you would think that every man has this issue and that this it is the only problem between the sheets. You never hear or see any information about women and the sexual problems that we have. It is a shame. Women experience sexual problems with the same frequency as men, but they rarely get treated. 44 percent of women in this country will experience some degree of sexual dysfunction in their lifetime! That is almost half. Low desire is the most common one, but PAIN with intercourse is the most distressful. Approximately 20 percent of women will experience painful sex and it often is a chronic problem. It can destroy a relationship and do untold damage to a woman’s self-esteem. It can dramatically increase the risk of depression, also. Many believe that depression leads to sexual dysfunction, but the converse is also true. Women who have pain with intercourse are two-and-a-half times as likely to be depressed than the general population, and women who are unable to reach orgasm are over five times as likely to be depressed.
