What is Sexual Arousal Disorder?
Sexual desires naturally fluctuate over the years for both men and women. These fluctuations can coincide with stagnant relationships, major life changes, stress, medications, aging and other hormone or physical changes.
Sexual problems can be classified as sexual complaints, dysfunction, or disorders. Sexual dysfunction associated with personal distress is often categorized as a disorder, therefore, abnormal function or sexual discontent can exist without it having to be diagnosed as a disorder. There are so many terms and names generated for conditions that involve lack of sexual interest or arousal that it can get very confusing. For this reason, TelewellnessMD® combined the conditions that require similar treatments into one discussion.
Bottom line, when you lack interest in sex or have difficulty becoming aroused and this causes any personal distress – we can help!
Research supports that sex can help relieve stress, improve mood, decrease pain, strengthen heart, and increase productivity by raising key hormones and other brain chemicals. This data supports that adults should invest necessary time and money into solutions that can improve their sex lives.
Types of Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is generally is classified into four categories:
- Desire disorders —lack of sexual desire or interest in sex.
- Erectile & Arousal disorders —inability to become physically aroused or excited during sexual activity.
- Orgasm disorders —delay or absence of orgasm (climax)
- Pain disorders — pain during intercourse
Reasons For Sexual Dysfunction
- Low self-esteem
- Poor body image
- Relationship problems
TelewellnessMD® offers several options for treating sexual dysfunction, because not everyone responds to treatments the same.
Although sexual therapy and education (e.g., cognitive behavior therapy, individual and couple therapy, physiotherapy) are still the most common forms of treatment, but hormone, peptide and other pharmacotherapies are starting to become more popular for both men and women.
Cleaning up your lifestyle, which includes sleep, diet and exercise can improve both mental and physical causes of sexual dysfunction. You can see other therapies that TelewellnessMD® offers in our Health and Wellness section.
