Sexual dysfunction is a rising problem especially in those who are at pe1imenopausal age. It goes hand in hand with aging, medical and surgical comorbidities, psychological factors as well as relationship factors. More and more women seek the opinion of doctors since it has disrupted their quality of life. The prevalence is hard to determine since women are reluctant to come up with the complaint of sexual dysfunction. Remedies have been coming up such as topical moisturizer applicants to newer hormone replacement therapies. Psychological phenomenon has been further explored since many women are suffering from depression and other infinities of the mind. Even though studies have been done, the problem is far from resolved and further studies and newer methods should be produced to improve quality of life and provide a long lasting solution for sexual dysfunction.
