Female Sexual Issues Support Group

Sexual dysfunction or sexual malfunction is difficulty during any stage of the sexual act (which includes desire, arousal, orgasm, and resolution) that prevents the individual or couple from enjoying sexual activity. Sexual dysfunction disorders are generally classified into four categories: sexual desire disorders, sexual arousal disorders, orgasm disorders, and sexual pain disorders. Sexual desire disorders or decreased libido can be caused by a decrease in normal estrogen (in women) or testosterone (in both men and women) production. Other causes may be aging, fatigue, pregnancy, medications (such as the SSRIs) or psychiatric conditions, such as depression and anxiety. Sexual arousal disorders were previously known as frigidity in women...

    Desquamative Inflammatory Vaginitis

    Does anyone else here have this? I was diagnosed with this a week or two ago and I was so happy to finally have an answer after so many years of doctors and dealing with the symptoms. My most prominent symptom being extremely heavy discharge. Really embarrassing =/ I've also been dealing with painful sex, pain with tampons, and random little pains that I didn't know were related until two weeks...

    Will a blow job always be good enough?

    I'm 22 years old, I have been in a committed long term relationship with my boyfriend for a little over 5 years and we have NEVER had penetrational sex. He is the first (and only) man I have ever been intimate with. We have been intimate since shortly after establishing our relationship but have never had full vaginal penetrational sex. Last year I was (finally) given a diagnosis of vulvodynia, a...

    Am I asexual or sexually dysfunctional?

    I've identified as asexual for a couple of years, however I'm starting to wonder if it's some kind of disorder instead. The asexuals I've spoken to seem to not care that they don't want or like sex. I have literally no sex drive, I feel no arousal etc. I hate sex. The whole thing repulses me. The weird thing is though, when I was 16-19 I actually enjoyed it. Over the years it seems I've...

    Inability to orgasm

    I’m 29, a sober alcoholic, I’m on Wellbutrin, with the man of my dreams and I have only orgasmed 3 times in my life, only with him. The last time I orgasmed was around 3 years ago. I have been on and off meds for 10 years. I have a really hard time “un-focusing” during sex and just experiencing the moment. I feel kind of hopeless and am looking for help.

    He was not able to penetrate...

    Hi,I'm 19 and a virgin (well not really anymore i guess), last night i had a meet up with a guy I've been talking to for a while. So one thing led to another. Now the problem though is whilst we were messing around, he was able to insert two fingers with no problem at all although there was a bit of pain but i figured that's just because it's my first time and there was blood as well. I was...

    having trouble reaching orgasm

    I am having trouble reaching orgasm. I am also on an antidepressant and have switched to cymbalta like 4 months ago but have had this problem since before that though. I have the desire and am very aroused but when it comes time to get close to orgasm I just cant do it. I have tried everything I can think of. I have looked up some things to try also and that did not even work either. I am kind...

    Not aroused

    I have been with my current boyfriend for about 3 years and me being aroused has gone out the window.  When we first got together we had sex constantly and we would both initiate.  Now,  it is maybe once everyone couple weeks and it is always him initiating.  I don't realize it till he brings it up.  I don't know what to do. I don't feel desirable and I am just "not in the mood".  Any tips...

    I want to kill my sex drive

    I'm a 35 year old woman who has lived through hell. Physical and mental abuse as a child as well as severe mental physical and sexual abuse from my late husband.

    sexual dysfunction in a relationship

    I've had a chronic pain condition in my bladder for several years now (IC) and it makes intercourse incredibly painful. Having sex is next to impossible because of the pain, and as a young woman (22 years old) I've been struggling with sex/having a fulfilling relationship without sex for years. When I first started experiencing my pain I was 17 years old and was in a relationship with a man who...

    Called a Whore

    I don't know if this is the right group for this but it makes the most sense to me. I was called a whore today because I've slept with 18 people. I'm 28. I don't regret any part of my sexual history (well, except being raped, but that wasn't my fault). Do you ever get called a whore or a slut? Does it bother you? They also said I wasn't a real feminist because of all the people I've slept with....

    Just lost

    this may be long but please read because I think I may be doomed in all relationships due to sex. 14 years ago I had Sec. For the first time. No regrets at all and of course it physically hurt me. I thought it was normal so I continued without saying anything hoping that sometime it wouldn't hurt. A year went by and it was hurting all the time and so I came up with every excuse not to have it. I...
