Female Viagra and treatment for Female Sex Drive (FSD) in the UK

Posted Mar 23 2010 7:49am

According to a PharmaTimes article on a report by Datamonitor, society and cultural barriers will continue to prevent women from recognising that they may suffer from female sexual dysfunction and seeking help, according to a new report.

The point is that this is an area affected by stigma and “is often disregarded by the medical community”. FSD is an umbrella term that covers a variety of different problems from hypoactive sexual desire disorder (or low libido) and sexual arousal disorder to painful intercourse. Also there is often an overlap between disorders that can affect diagnosis and treatment.

Maya Marescotti, women’s health analyst at Datamonitor, says there is “a stigma associated with talking about sex, cultural embarrassment, and avoidance of discussion of sexual dysfunction in the clinical environment”. She adds that “these are common barriers that prevent doctors and patients from talking about sex”.
