Sexual Dysfunction

What is Sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction can manifest itself at any point in the sexual response cycle. It keeps you from getting pleasure out of sexual activities.

Excitement, plateau, climax, and resolution are the typical stages of the sexual response cycle. The excitement phase of the sexual response includes both desire and arousal. It’s crucial to note that women do not always progress through these stages in the same sequence.

Sexual dysfunction can be caused by various physical and/or medical issues. Diabetes, heart and vascular (blood vessel) illness, neurological problems, hormonal imbalances, chronic diseases including kidney or liver failure, alcoholism and drug misuse are all examples. Furthermore, several medicines, especially antidepressants, have adverse effects that might impact sexual performance.

Psychological causes:

Work-related stress and worry, anxieties about sexual performance, marriage or relationship troubles, depression, feelings of guilt, body image concerns, and the impact of a previous sexual trauma are all psychological factors.

Medication for other ailments might occasionally have negative effects that influence your sexual function. Changing your prescription may help, and men with erectile dysfunction may benefit from medications like Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and Staxyn, which improve blood flow to the penis and can be taken after consultation with the doctor.
