Biological and Psychosocial Pathophysiology of Female Sexual Dysfunction During the Menopausal Transition
The Journal of Sexual Medicine 2005; 2 (suppl. 3): 133-145

Introduction
Although increasing age is a primary determinant of reduced sexual function in older women, changes in the hormonal environment that accompany menopause are also believed to be significant contributors to female (and couples’) sexual dysfunction. It is important to explore current understanding of the specific contributions of biological and psychosocial factors on sexual function changes with age.

Aim
To analyze the most relevant biological, psychosexual and/or contextual factors that influence changes in women’s sexuality during and after the menopause.
 
Method

Literature review plus clinical observations.
