Abstract

Woman's sexual response is composite and complex. However, recent understanding of the causes of sexual dysfunction in women highlights not only psychological but also organic aspects. Taking patients' medical and sexual history and careful physical examinations are very important to make diagnosis and uncover conditions that cause problems in their sexual activities. Multimodal treatment with good support from the sexual partner is usually essential.
