We’ve all heard of erectile dysfunction and medications such as Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis through commercials on TV, but did you know that 1 in 3 women will be affected by a sex-related difficulty in their lifetime? Sexual dysfunction is an issue for men and women alike!

Dr.Nadine Thompson, a certified OBGYN and specialist in sexual health, defines sexual dysfunction as “anything that affects the individual or couple sexually”. It’s important to be aware of the less-known complications and treatments for women.
