The Cleveland Clinic suggests that approximately 43% of women report some form of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) however this is assuming women were being properly asked about their sexual health which can be a difficult subject even for clinicians to discuss.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing sexual pleasure is likely low on the list, underneath scrambling to meet one’s basic survival needs. Online social discussions have yielded users expressing that “general panic and despair” have led to the sudden disappearance of their libido. Others described feeling “unappealing” or wanting to cuddle and eat snacks instead. Finally, in a poll of just over 9,000 people from NBC News, only 24% said that coronavirus outbreak had positively affected their sex lives, 28% were neutral and 47% said it had affected them negatively. FSD is broken down into four main categories: desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasm disorders and sexual pain disorders.

 

The focus of this presentation is to discuss the female sexual response and the hormonal evaluation. Many clinicians focus entirely on testosterone when a myriad of hormones must be in balance including oxytocin, estrogen, progesterone, dopamine, serotonin and the stress hormones. Each hormone and their contribution to her sexual response will be discussed as well as both conventional and functional treatment considerations.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Define the categories of Female Sexual Dysfunction;
  • Break down lust, attraction and sex drive;
  • Discuss hormones associated with sex drive such as cortisol, dopamine, and oxytocin;
  • Review treatment options for hormonally dysfunctional women to improve their sex drive.

Precision Analytical Inc. offers a revolutionary model of hormone testing called DUTCH - a Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones.

By using four simple, dried urine collections, DUTCH takes the advantages of a 24-hour urine test and adds the pattern of free cortisol (which has traditionally been acquired from saliva). Hormone and metabolite values correlate to 24-hour urine values. Free cortisol concentrations accurately replace its testing in saliva.

Sex hormone analysis uses the most accurate method available (LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS) and offers basic hormones and extensive sex hormones and their metabolites. Adrenal hormone testing is the most comprehensive available. This test includes free cortisol and a better marker of total cortisol production by including cortisol and cortisone metabolites. Melatonin, oxidative stress and organic acids are also tested.

Lastly, DUTCH testing is built to optimize HRT monitoring. Special methods (separation of free and conjugated hormones) and additional metabolites make the testing unparalleled for testing with and without HRT.
