Content and aim: This lecture focuses on the role of hormones and hormonal treatments in female sexual health and is tailored specifically for sexologists who do not have a background in endocrinology. Prof Vignozzi, renowned in the fields of sexual medicine and endocrinology, will explain the physiological roles of hormones like testosterone and estrogen in women’s sexual health and present evidence-based hormonal therapies. Participants will gain insights into the potential side effects and contraindications of these treatments and learn from detailed case studies that illustrate successful clinical outcomes. With this lecture, sexologists will be able to educate their female patients on the role of hormones as well as the possible role of hormonal therapy. Sexologists will understand when a referral for hormonal assessment is indicated and when hormonal treatment should be an option. This lecture represents an invaluable opportunity for clinicians to offer more informed, compassionate, and effective treatment options to their patients.

 

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand the role of hormones in female sexual health.
  2. Gain knowledge of the possibilities offered with hormonal treatment for women with FSD.
  3. Understand the contraindications of hormonal therapy.
  4. Be aware of the need for a multidisciplinary approach to women presenting specific symptoms.
