The Bio-Psycho-Social Dimension In Women's Sexual Desire: 'Argumentum Ad Novitatem'.

The Bio-Psycho-Social Dimension In Women's Sexual Desire: 'Argumentum Ad Novitatem'. Curr Drug Targets. 2017 Jun 21;: Authors: Roslan NS, Jaafar NRN, Sidi H, Baharuddin N, Kumar J, Das S, Hussein NHN Abstract Sexual desire includes complex motivation and drive. In the context of biological and cognitive-emotive state art of science, it is often a neglected field in medicine. With regard to the treatment, study on women's sexual function received less attention compared to the men's sexuality. In the past, this endeavor was relatively not well disseminated in the scientific community. Recently, there was a revolutionized surge of drug targets available to treat women with low sexual desire. It is timely to review the relevant biological approach, especially in the context of pharmacotherapy to understand this interesting clinical entity which was modulated by numerous interactive psychosocial inter-play and factors. The complex inter-play between numerous dimensional factors lends insights to understand the neural mechanism, i.e. the rewards centre pathway and its interaction with external psychosocial stimulus, i.e. relationship and meaningful life events. The role of hormones i.e. oxytocin and testosterone regulation and neurotransmitters i.e. dopamine and serotonin modulation was pivotal as reflected by the introduction of a molecule of flibanserin, a full agonist of the 5-HT1A and partial agonist of D4 to treat pre-menopausal women with low sexual des...

Discussions about sexuality and reproduction are an important part of transition planning and must be done with an awareness of the adolescent’s developing understanding and maturity. Pregnancy imposes a hemodynamic load on the heart which may lead to cardiac, obstetric, and fetal/neonatal complications in women with CHD. Prepregnancy counselling must include an assessment of maternal and fetal risk according to several well developed models. Counselling should also include discussions about fertility and alternatives to pregnancy when appropriate. Recommendations for contraception must be made according to the patie...

Publication date: Available online 4 December 2019Source: Mechanisms of Ageing and DevelopmentAuthor(s): Thamile Luciane Reus, Carla Abdo Brohem, Desiree Cigaran Schuck, Marcio LorenciniAbstractMenopause is a stage in a woman’s life characterized by twelve months of amenorrhoea. This transition happens due to changes in ovarian follicular activity, leading to endocrine, biological and clinical modifications. The main hormones related to these changes and symptoms are oestradiol, LH, FSH, AMH, Inhibin B and GnRH. It is important to point out that the skin is very affected by all these hormone changes, leading to a dec...

AbstractClinically relevant adverse drug reactions differ between men and women. The underlying physiological and pharmacological processes contributing to these differences are infrequently studied or reported. As gene expression, cellular regulatory pathways, and integrated physiological functions differ between females and males, aggregating data from combined groups of men and women obscures the ability to detect these differences. This paper summarizes how genetic sex, that is, the presence of sex chromosomes XY for male or XX for female, and the influence of sex hormones affect transporters, receptors, and enzymes in...
