Sexual Dysfunction

 

WHAT IS SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION?

Sexual dysfunction refers to difficulty experienced by a man or woman during any stage of a normal sexual activity, including desire, arousal or orgasm. Sexual dysfunction disorders can be classified into four categories: sexual desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasm disorders and pain disorders. These disorders may be caused by psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression; medical illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure; certain medications, including some anti-depressants; and relationship difficulties.

The success of treatment for sexual dysfunction depends on the underlying cause of the problem. The outlook is good for dysfunction that is related to a treatable or reversible physical condition. Mild dysfunction that is related to stress, fear, or anxiety often can be successfully treated with hormone replacement, since men with low levels of testosterone may benefit from bio-identical hormones. Medications, such as Cialis, Viagra or Levitra may help improve sexual function in men by increasing blood flow to the penis. Nutraceuticals (herbs, vitamins, and mineral supplements) can help as well. Sexual dysfunction differs for men and women.
