Improving sexual health: a guide for physicians and patients

A recent study reveals that nearly half of women experience some form of sexual dysfunction, highlighting the need for open conversations between patients and healthcare providers. Experts recommend implementing the "5As" framework, which includes (1A) Asking patients about their sexual health, (2A) Advising them on common struggles, (3A) Assessing their condition with standardized questions, (4A) Assisting by providing treatment options, and (5A) Arranging follow-up visits. Medications can contribute to sexual dysfunction, and physicians should conduct medication reviews to address this. Treatment options range from prescription drugs to therapy, including medications like Flibanserin and Bremelanotide, testosterone (off-label use), hormone replacement therapy, and nonpharmacologic interventions such as sex therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and mindfulness meditation.
