The clinical evaluation of female sexual dysfunctions should be supplemented by validated questionnaires; however, there is no specific instrument available in Greek language. The study was designed to linguistically validate the Greek version of Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI). Ninety-nine healthy women and eighteen women with a sexual dysfunction were recruited through a survey and were asked to voluntarily complete the FSFI questionnaire in Greek (FSFI-Gr) at baseline and after 2 weeks. We assessed validity, internal consistency reliability and test-retest reliability of the FSFI greek version...

Treatment-related sexual dysfunction is a common side effect of antidepressants and contributes to patient non-compliance or treatment cessation. However, the multimodal antidepressant, vortioxetine, demonstrates low sexual side effects in depressed patients. To investigate the mechanisms involved, sexual behavior was assessed in male and female rats after acute, and repeated (7 and 14 days) treatment with vortioxetine, flesinoxan (a 5-HT1A agonist), CP-94253 (a 5-HT1B agonist), or ondansetron (a 5-HT3 antagonist)...

Female Sexual Disorders (FSD) include a complex, multidimensional, individual experience that can change as an individual age, suggesting that these problems are caused by multiple factors including psychosocial factors, personal relationships, pathologic changes caused by diseases, and pharmacologic influences. Menopause is an important time for middle aged women and postmenopausal physiological changes could have a significant role in the development of FSD. Few is still known about their correct definition and treatment...

Significance The endogenous hydrogen sulfide (H<sub></sub>2<sub></sub>S) pathway produces an array of biological effects that vary depending upon the bodily region. In addition, the H<sub></sub>2<sub></sub>S pathway's relevance often changes depending upon a healthy or disease state. There is abundant evidence pointing to a key role for this pathway in male and female genito-urinary diseases suggesting it as a possible target for new therapeutic approaches. Recent Advances The tissue-specific localization of the H2S enzymes in the genito-urinary tract has allowed for a better understanding of its role in the body's pathophysiology...

The Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) is the gold standard for evaluating female sexual function, yet it has not been validated in a visual analogue scale (VAS) format. The aim of the present study was to assess the psychometric properties of the FSFI applied to the VAS. Methods: The study was conducted in three phases. In Phase 1, the instrument was adapted by two independent researchers, generating two versions, which were evaluated by a committee of six experts. The FSFI-VAS, resulting from this first phase, was used in a pilot study with 45 women...

Introduction Sexual pleasure is fundamental for the maintenance of health and well-being, but it may be adversely affected by medical and psychosocial conditions. Many patients only feel that their health is fully restored after they resume normal sexual activities. Any discussion of sexuality in a doctor's office is typically limited, mainly because of a lack of models or protocols available to guide the discussion of the topic. Objectives To present a model designed to guide gynecologists in the management of female sexual complaints...

Background: Intrauterine growth patterns are influenced by maternal thyroid function during gestation and by fetal sex. It is unknown, however, whether the relationships between maternal thyrotropin (TSH) and free thyroxine (fT4) levels in early pregnancy and fetal growth outcomes are modified by fetal sex. Design: Data were obtained from a community-based cohort study of pregnant women living in Amsterdam (Amsterdam Born Children and Their Development study). TSH and fT4 levels were determined during the first prenatal screening at median 13 weeks (interquartile range, 12 to 14)...

Erectile dysfunction is a medical disease with extensive influence on the quality of life and well-being of patients and their female or male partners. Nowadays, most of the underlying pathological factors are well known. The general medical history with the question of possible risk factors and the specific sexual history play the most important roles in the guideline-based diagnostics. In addition, a thorough clinical examination and specific laboratory tests should be carried out. Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors, vacuum devices, injection therapy and penile prostheses are the options for an evidence-based and individual treatment of affected patients...

REVIEW
Ann Kathryn Korkidakis, Robert L Reid
Androgens, both in excessive and depleted states, have been implicated in female reproductive health disorders. As such, serum testosterone measurements are frequently ordered by physicians in cases of sexual dysfunction and in women presenting with hirsutism. Commercially available androgen assays have significant limitations in the female population. Furthermore, the measurements themselves are not always informative in patient diagnosis, treatment, or prognosis. This article reviews the limitations of serum androgen measurements in women suspected to have elevated or reduced androgen action...
