What is Sexual Dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction can affect both men and women and can stop an individual from experiencing satisfaction during sex. For men, low libido is often linked with low levels of testosterone, which can affect a male’s body and mood. For women, a lack of desire is the most common complaint and tends to become more common as women age.

Sexual Dysfunction in Men

Sexual dysfunction in males may include:

  • Erectile dysfunction: Trouble getting or keeping an erection.
  • Delayed or inhibited ejaculation: Reaching orgasm slowly or not at all.
  • Premature ejaculation: Reaching orgasm too fast.
  • Low libido: Having a reduced interest in sex.

Sexual Dysfunction in Women

Sexual dysfunction in women is a disorder that can take many forms. The most common issues include:

  • Anorgasmia: The inability to experience an orgasm.
  • Dyspareunia: Pain during sex.
  • Hypoactive sexual desire disorder: Low libido.
  • Sexual arousal disorder: Trouble becoming aroused.

There are many different physical and psychological causes of sexual dysfunction in women, including blood flow disorders, gynecological conditions, hormonal changes, certain medications, stress, past physical or sexual abuse, and more.
