We request you to fill up the female sexual function (FSF) questionnaire which is a validated questionnaire to evaluate sexual function. We then monitor sexual function through follow up questionnaires. We expect you to notice improvement in desire, arousal, lubrication and orgasms. You would also notice an increase in wetness making sex less painful.
