Female Sexual Health Information

Today, women's sexuality is openly discussed and portrayed on television, in magazines, and on the Internet. Most importantly, women themselves are becoming increasingly aware of their sexuality and their sexual health.

Women's sexual health is important to overall emotional and physical well-being. Achieving a healthy and satisfying sex life doesn't happen by magic. It takes self-reflection and candid communication. A sexual problem, or sexual dysfunction, refers to a problem during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from the sexual activity. Sexual problems occur in adults of all ages. Among those commonly affected are those in seniors, which may be related to a decline in health associated with aging.

From menstruation and birth control to sexual problems,menopause, and pain, find out about what affects you uniquely as a woman.
