Abstract

Female sexual dysfunction is now of great concern and have a relatively high prevalence. It is related with psychosocial disorder, organic disease and iatrogenic cause. But until recently, basic science and clinical study on it is limited and medical therapy stays in early experimental steps except conventional hormone replacement therapy. Hormonal based female sexual dysfunction can be caused by dysfunction of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis, surgical or medical castration, menopause and premature ovarian failure. We report two cases of female sexual dysfunction derived from hormonal deficiency. One case is about premature menopause induced and the other is about rare form of adult onset idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.
