Female Sexual Problems Prevention
The most important thing you can do to prevent or recover from sexual problems is communicate openly and honestly with your partner.
Adopt a healthy lifestyle to promote overall well-being. This will increase your confidence and self-esteem, which will in turn increase your interest in sex and your responsiveness.
Female Sexual Problems Prognosis
Some sexual problems resolve naturally with time or with changes in life situation. Most, however, do not. Ignoring persistent sexual problems does not make them go away. Ongoing sexual problems lead to resentment and problems in the relationship.
The outlook for sexual problems depends on the cause of the problem. Problems due to reversible or treatable medical conditions often resolve with appropriate treatment. Some mild problems caused by anxiety, stress, or relationship problems can improve with counseling, education, and improved communication.
