The Most Common Sexual Dysfunction in Women: Low Interest

Ricardo Munarriz, MD

The January meeting was so crowded, Dr. Goldstein and Dr. Munarriz were carrying in extra chairs! Dr. Munarriz addressed the most common sexual dysfunction in women: low interest. He explained about the necessity for women to have androgens for sexual function, and discussed the bloodwork necessary to check for androgen insufficiency and the different forms of androgen treatment. The patient advocate told her story, then answered a myriad of questions. Women told of trying to get help for 25 years and more, and finally finding their way to the Institute for Sexual Medicine, or of starting androgen therapy and getting better slowly.
