Expanding your practice to include Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD)

Periodically, we receive requests from OB/GYN practices to train their physicians and staff to build an FSD practice. The training focuses on sharing best practices in setting up a practice including patient instruction, billing systems, supplies and rich narrative on the opportunities and challenges of expanding a practice to treat FSD.

Best Practices for Talking to Patients with Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD)

This guide was created by a task force of women’s health experts to increase awareness and provide support on the topic of FSD for OB/GYNs. The goal of this guide is to provide proper assessment methods and treatments, as well as promote the importance of sensitive and honest patient provider dialogue.

The educational content for this guide was shaped by a recent survey of OB/GYNs, literature review and task force consensus.

Women often depend on their OB/GYNs for sexual health advice, as they are likely the only health care providers they may see on a regular basis.

Therefore, it is critical that they be open to assessing and managing a variety of sexual dysfunction conditions within their practice. If needed, each OB/GYN can also serve as an important source for referring women to appropriate services.

Due to the complex nature of FSD and a myriad of factors that may result in the inability of a patient to fully express her sexuality, OB/GYNs may prefer a team approach that incorporates referral to and consultation with other specialty providers.
