Content: This lecture is designed for sexologists who would like to increase their competence in diagnosing female sexual dysfunctions. Francesca Tripodi guides the listener through the differences between DSM-5 and ICD-11 diagnostic criteria, explaining why clinicians should also consider the ICSM and ISSWSH recommendations on female sexual dysfunction. A specific pathway for the sexual interview is presented, focusing on assessing genital pain, arousal, orgasm and desire disorders. Biological and medical conditions that can cause sexual problems are examined to highlight the importance of collecting the medical history when assessing sexual symptoms. Common clinical presentations and important aspects of sexual history taking are discussed. In the end, the list of factors that exclude the diagnosis of female sexual dysfunction is given. Produced in 2020
