Hypoactive sexual desire disorder, the mental and physical loss of desire to have sex for an extended period of time, is a treatable medical condition.
Müllerian anomalies are congenital abnormalities of the female reproductive tract that result in atypical development of the uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix and/or vagina. Some anomalies may need surgery.
Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sacs) can form on the surface of or inside an ovary. Most cause no symptoms and will go away over time without any treatment.
Women may experience pain during sex (dyspareunia) caused by emotional or physical issues. Treatments include lubrication, relaxation exercises & counseling.
Most women at some time experience some form of pain during their menstrual cycle. Painful periods, with no physical abnormality present, are one of the most common reasons why women see a gynecologist.

PCOS is a common hormonal disorder that affects up to 5 million women in the U.S. alone who may have symptoms, however, there is no known cause or treatment.
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in the lower or upper urinary tract caused by bacteria that enter through the urethra or urine that backs up into the kidneys.
Uterine fibroids are benign (noncancerous) tumors that develop in the uterus. Some women may only need periodic pelvic exams or ultrasounds to monitor the fibroid’s growth. If the fibroid is hampering fertility or causing severe symptoms, surgery may be necessary.
