From the Paper:

"While Female Sexual Dysfunction is not a rare problem, it is difficult to treat due to the fact that patients often feel uncomfortable talking with their physicians about it. Often, too, there is more than one cause and the different causes may require different treatments. Psychotherapy is not the only treatment available today. While it has been the policy of the church, in the past, to lead women to believe what should be normal sexual desire is instead perverse or bad, that attitude is slowly changing and the church is helping women build a better self-image."
