What is Female Sexual Dysfunction?
Female sexual dysfunction, or FSD, is a continued problem surrounding your sexual desire or response that results in strains in your relationship with your partner. FSD can occur at any point in a woman’s life, and it can be an acute or chronic problem. There are multiple types of FSD, which include orgasmic disorder, low sexual desire, sexual pain disorder, and sexual arousal disorder. Each of these types vary slightly in symptoms, and these are not all strictly physical. FSD has other components, including lifestyle, emotions, and other factors.
How Much Does FSD Treatment Cost?
FSD treatment cost depends on the treatment options that are used to treat your unique symptoms. The treatment is individualized to meet your unique situation, and Dr. Lodge and the staff at Cool Springs MD will ensure that your FSD treatment is appropriate and helps relieve your symptoms.
Am I a Candidate for FSD Treatment?
If you are a female concerned with your sexual functioning, regardless of your age, you are a candidate for FSD treatment.
How is FSD Treatment Performed?
There are multiple therapy methods available in FSD treatment, including medication changes, exercises, hormone treatment — including HRT for women — physical therapy, supplements, and others. Your individualized treatment may include one or more of these different methods, and the duration will vary to ensure that your problem is properly treated.
How is Testosterone Therapy Used to Treat FSD?
Testosterone therapy may be used to treat female sexual dysfunction. Testosterone therapy comes in many forms including creams, gels, patches and pills. Testosterone therapy might be appropriate if you have a reduced sex drive, depression and fatigue after surgically induced menopause or if you have tried estrogen therapy and it hasn’t relieved your symptoms. You may also qualify for testosterone therapy if you are postmenopausal, undergoing estrogen therapy and have a decreased sex drive with no other identifiable causes. Talk to your doctor to determine if you are a candidate for testosterone therapy and to find out which option would be best suited for you.
What is Recovery Like After FSD?
FSD recovery is typically not an extensive process. Recovery duration will depend on which treatment methods are utilized. Even with the use of hormone replacement therapies, there is not much downtime.
How Long Will My FSD Results Last?
FSD treatment results should typically solve your FSD-related problems; however, they can reoccur, particularly in patients with chronic FSD. If you want a more detailed assessment of what your individualized treatment and results, reach out to us at Cool Springs MD to schedule a consultation.
