It's only been recently that female sexuality has been a hot topic of conversation. For a very long time, it may have seemed as though men received gotten the “special treatment” when it came to medically treating sexual dysfunction. Now is finally time to have that much-needed discussion about female sexual dysfunction.
MORE THAN YOU THINK
It is estimated that around 43% of women of all ages suffer from sexual dysfunction...and that’s just based on the number of those who have reported their frustrations. Considering this, “the actual number of women [could] be greater than 50%--some estimate to be at least 60%...That means that with 150 million women in the US in 2010, at least 50 million women suffer with these problems.” 
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS?
Unfortunately, we lose sexual libido as we age due to hormonal changes and life stress. Some of the other potential causes include diabetes, adrenal disorders, neurological conditions, arthritis, and the usage of certain medications and drugs. 
Symptoms of sexual dysfunction in women include--but are not limited to--reduced libido, difficulty reaching orgasm, decreased lubrications, and loss of self-esteem. 
TREATMENTS FOR FEMALE SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION
There is currently only one FDA approved drug for female sexual dysfunction called Addyi (flibanserin). However, there could be possible problems with Addyi as this medication is very new (it was approved in late 2015). Thus, there hasn’t been enough time to truly see all of the benefits and issues with the drug. One thing to keep in mind is that it does come with a boxed warning that highlights the risks of severe hypotension and syncope [loss of consciousness] in patients who drink alcohol during treatment with Addyi.” It can also potentially cause central nervous system depression. 
Other treatments include “vaginal estrogen or topical testosterone, psychotherapy,” or “hormone therapies.” The results of these treatments being described as "short-term". 
THE O-SHOT: ALTERNATIVE THERAPY USING REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
If you’re looking for a more natural therapy, Regeneris Medical can provide you just that with the O-Shot- a revolutionary alternative therapy for female sexual dysfunction. Just like the P-Shot, (for males with erectile dysfunction) the O-Shot is a “simple, relatively painless, office-based procedure which utilizes PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma – blood-derived growth factors) to rejuvenate the tissues” of the vagina. Some of the potential benefits of the O-Shot include [as listed by http://oshot.info/]:
