You can take this female sexual function questionnaire to see if you are experiencing  low libido and are worried about your sexual function. If you feel the results show that you have low libido, you should consult with your doctor for more tests.

Firstly, your health professional must determine if your libido is actually abnormally low, or if your lack of interest in sex is merely a discrepancy with your partner’s rhythm. A common tool used to assess sexual function in women is the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), created in 2000 by Dr. Raymond Rosen and his colleagues at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. The FSFI consists of 19 multiple-choice questions.

The FSFI asks about sexual feelings and responses during the past four weeks. The FSFI defines sex as caressing, fantasy, foreplay, masturbation and vaginal intercourse. The questionnaire covers six domains: desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction and pain. The doctor scores each of your responses on a scale of 0 to 5. The minimum score is 2 and the maximum score is 36. Your doctor may use a different questionnaire, but you may find it helpful to complete the FSFI and bring it to your appointment as a guideline for your discussion.

 

Here are the questions you should consider when assessing your level of sexual function. The same questions are asked in our female sexual function questionnaire:

1. Over the past 4 weeks, how often did you feel sexual desire or interest?

2. Over the past 4 weeks, how would you rate your level (degree) of sexual desire i.e. interest?

3. Over the past 4 weeks, how often did you feel sexually aroused (“turned on”) during sexual activity i.e. intercourse to end?
