• Female Treatment Options

    At the Center for Sexual Function, affiliated with Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, we know that correcting any existing medical issue is the first line of defense in solving a woman’s sexual dysfunction problem.

    Treatments may include:

    • Medication adjustment. In some cases, sexual dysfunction can be treated with a change in the medication you may be taking for another condition, or adjusting your dosages.
    • Sex therapy. This can be helpful if the sexual dysfunction problem is related to emotional factors such as relationship difficulties or anxiety-related issues.
    • Hormone treatment. If your body is deficient in certain hormones, such as estrogen, the physicians at Lahey’s Center for Sexual Function have ways of correcting this.
    • Medications. Addyi (flibanserin), also called the “female Viagra,” has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat sexual dysfunction in premenopausal women.
