What Is Sexual Dysfunction?
A condition that many people feel uncomfortable discussing is one that can happen to many people, male or female. Sexual dysfunction can be stressful, overwhelming, and embarrassing, especially when you consider getting a professional opinion on the problems that have been experienced.
According to clevelandclinic.org, "Sexual dysfunction refers to any difficulty a person or couple are experiencing with the various aspects of sexual activity such as attraction, arousal, pleasure and orgasm."
As we said, those who suffer from this type of disorder may feel embarrassed about it. Others might not realize that it's treatable. However, there are treatments. Over the course of the next few blog posts, we are going to talk in detail about the various types of this condition as well as causes and treatments that you can consider.
Here, you'll find the different types of conditions that fall under this disorder.
- Arousal disorders —incapable of become physically stimulated or enthusiastic during sexual activity
- Desire disorders —absence of sexual desire, no interest in sex
- Orgasm disorders —delay or absence of a climax
- Pain disorders — pain during intercourse
Unfortunately, these disorders can affect people of any age. Typically, it becomes more of an issue as aging occurs. Various health conditions and medications can also cause the disorder.
The most important step in treating this condition is to find the underlying cause. Because there are many different reasons why the disorder can be an issue, regardless of age or gender, there's always a root cause that should be sought.
Once the condition's root cause is found, treatment can help in terms of recovery. If you're interested in learning more about this condition, including causes and how to treat it, be sure to visit back with our next blog. We will have more information there.
