Arousal disorders with impaired arousal response can be defined as genital, subjective or combined arousal disorder. The prevalence varies and is increased with increasing age, especially at the time of menopause. Arousal disorders are often comorbid with desire disorder or orgasm and pain disorders. In the evaluation, a thorough sexological history as well as medical and gynaecological history and examination should be carried out. Treatment should be based on type of arousal disorder and clinical findings.
