Sexual Dysfunction among Women with Connective Tissue Disease. The Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), consisting of six domains was used to assess the multidimensional nature of female sexual dysfunction among women with scleroderma. Our results show a high prevalence of sexual dysfunction among female scleroderma patients compared to a healthy control population. Erica Anderson (IngentaConnect) Current Rheumatology Reviews, Vol 5, No 2, May 2009 , pp. 126-132(7). (Also see: Female Sexual Dysfunction)

Oh Amanda, you really made me laugh! You must admit, it's more interesting than 'I need to wash my hair."
