The association of cardiometabolic factors and sexual health appears to be "milder" in women than in men, new research reports.
The paper is the first of a two-part study published in Sexual Medicine Reviews.
The authors discussed several factors, including diabetes, dyslipidemia, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and polycystic ovary syndrome.
They also considered the mechanisms that link these factors to female sexual dysfunction. For example, blood flow to the genitals is important for sexual arousal. But blood flow can be restricted by endothelial problems, which can be linked to cardiometabolic factors like obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.
