Women are becoming more aware of the consequences of sexual dysfunction on their lives and families. Female sexual dysfunction diagnosis and therapy present special challenges because of the conservative character of women. Several cultural and religious factors influence sexual practices and the disruption that it produces. We run a search across many databases for Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) in order to examine the most recent causes, definitions, diagnostic techniques, and therapy for FSD. Understanding the primary contributing variables, and the availability of numerous treatment modalities helps women to appreciate the ramifications of FSD while also empowering them to create channels of communication with their partners and health care professionals to seek help. Although some difficulties may provide moral dilemmas for health practitioners, having the cultural competency to address these concerns will promote enhanced health care delivery. This review was designed to examine and describe the many varieties of female sexual dysfunction that have been discovered in women throughout the world, as well as to encourage a better knowledge of their concerns in order to improve life quality.
