Presentation Abstract

The Effect of Exercise on Sexual Function in Women

Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) is a common problem that can affect women of all ages. This impacts the individual as well as her partner’s health, relationships and quality of life. Worldwide, prevalence has been reported to vary amongst different countries and also amongst pre and post-menopausal women. Research shows that FSD affects 41% of pre-menopausal women worldwide. Exercise in general is known to improve both physical and psychological overall health. Physical activity and structured exercise has also been shown to influence sexual health in women. This talk hopes to explore the direct and indirect effect of exercise on the multiple domains of women’s sexual health and function.
