Female Sexual Problems (cont.)

Femal Sexual Problems Diagnosis

Evaluation for a sexual problem will start with an extensive medical interview. Be sure to tell your health care professional about any medical or mental illnesses and surgeries you have or have had in the past and any medications you take, including over-the-counter medications, herbs, and supplements.

A complete physical examination also will be done. Depending on the type of problem you are having, your health care professional may choose to include a pelvic examination or may refer you to a gynecologic specialist for that part of the examination. For certain other types of problems, consultation with other specialists may be needed.

In most cases lab tests are not needed, although your health care professional may request tests to rule out certain conditions. You may have blood drawn to check hormone levels. X-rays and other radiology tests are needed only in unusual circumstances.
