Deep dyspareunia refers to pelvic pain with intercourse and can negatively affect a woman’s sexual function, relationships, and quality of life. Often, it is caused by endometriosis, but it might also stem from contact with other pelvic structures near the vagina, such as the bladder, pelvic floor muscles, cervix, uterus, and adnexa.
An estimated 40% to 45% of adult women have at least one type of sexual dysfunction, but not all of them feel distress over their situation. Past research has suggested that sexual problems and sexual distress don’t always have the same predictors.
This study analyzed whether predictors of general distress in women also predict sexual distress. The researchers also distinguished between three types of sexual distress: personal, perceived partner, and interpersonal.
The current study aimed to determine the efficacy of GnRHa treatment in this population in relation to Tanner stage, gonadotropins, and sex steroids. It also investigated the treatment’s effects on liver enzymes, renal function, and changes in body composition.
Sexual dysfunction is common among postmenopausal women. However, past studies have shown sexual improvements in women who receive local DHEA. Symptoms of vaginal atrophy also improved for these women.
This study is a meta-analysis intended to clarify the association of OSA and sexual dysfunction.
