Although female sexual dysfunction is currently a contested diagnostic, it has become more common in recent years to use testosterone-based drugs off-label to treat
. While drug companies are technically not allowed to market these drugs for off-label uses, sharing the information with doctors at CME conferences has proved to be an effective way to navigate around the FDA approval process.
Lori Anne Brotto (born 1975) is a Canadian psychologist best known for her work on female sexual arousal disorder (
). She was the youngest member appointed to the committees for the revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).
One problem with the current definition in the DSM-IV is that subjective arousal is not included. There is often no correlation between women's subjective and physiological arousal. With this in mind, recently,
has been divided up into sub-types:
Much of Segraves' work focuses on female sexual arousal disorder (
). Noting that "somehow depression and libido are interconnected," Segraves has examined the interplay between antidepressants and libido. He has conducted pilot studies and clinical trials on drugs that show promise in improving female sexual response, including bupropion.
Another issue is that, among women, there is a discrepancy between desire and arousal. After Cynthia Graham critically evaluated female sexual arousal disorder (
), she found that women reported that, contrary to Masters and Johnson's model, sexual arousal sometimes preceded sexual desire; at other times, desire presented before arousal. Because of the high comorbidity rates between HSDD and
, she would like to merge them to make the category "Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder." Hartmann and colleagues summarize their views of the current model of the sexual response cycle and conclude that "by simply expanding and continuing DSM-IV criteria and the traditional response cycle classification systems, it is impossible to come to diagnostic categories and subtypes that adequately reflect real-life female sexual problems".
Female sexual arousal disorder (
) is a disorder characterized by a persistent or recurrent inability to attain sexual arousal or to maintain arousal until the completion of a sexual activity. The diagnosis can also refer to an inadequate lubrication-swelling response normally present during arousal and sexual activity. The condition should be distinguished from a general loss of interest in sexual activity and from other sexual dysfunctions, such as the orgasmic disorder (anorgasmia) and hypoactive sexual desire disorder, which is characterized as a lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity for some period of time.
Kenneth Maravilla, Professor of Radiology and Neurological Surgery and Director of MRI Research Laboratory at the University of Washington, Seattle, presented research findings based on neuro-imaging of women's sexual function. In a small pilot study of four women with female sexual arousal disorder, Maravilla reported there was less brain activation seen in this group, including very little activation in the amygdala. These women also showed increased activation in the temporal areas, in contrast to women without sexual difficulties, who showed deactivation in similar areas. This may suggest an increased level of inhibition with an arousal stimulus in this small group of women with
The organization is based in Suva. The organization's president is Freddy Fatiaki. The organization was founded in 1990 as the Fiji Sports Association for the Disabled (
). Organized disability sport predated this in Fiji, with national competitions taking place as early as 1984. Within a year of being constituted, the organization was recognized by the country's NOC, the IPC and national sporting federations including athletics, archery, judo, swimming, table tennis and powerlifting. A few years later, they would also be recognized by the national tennis federation.
changed its name to the Fiji Paralympic Committee in 2008 to comply with an IPC directive that NPCs include Paralympic in their name. While Paralympic athletes are supported on equal terms with Olympic athletes, success has been limited to only a few sports. Problems include expensive transport, lack of expertise, and lack of suitable infrastructure. Funding is a major reason for the lack of advancement of the Fiji Paralympic Committee in supporting Paralympic sport in the country.
Brotto specializes in sexual issues for women during and after treatment for gynecological cancer, saying that "50% to almost 100% of women following gynaecological cancer do report some degree of sexual impairment depending on the kind of cancer treatment they've had." In 2005 Brotto launched North America's first study to explore a mindfulness-based treatment aimed at helping cancer survivors treated with radical hysterectomy regain their sexual health. To Brotto, the one defining feature of sexual dysfunction is the level of interference it causes. "If lack of desire or inability to reach orgasm interferes in a woman's life, distresses her, or creates a burden on her relationship with her partner, then it could do with some fixing. If it doesn't, then leave well enough alone." She coauthored two chapters on managing
and low sexual desire in women in the 2009 publication "Clinical Manual of Sexual Disorders" edited by Richard Balon and Robert Taylor Segraves.
