What is Sexual Dysfunction?

Sexual Dysfunction is the condition that stops an individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity during any stage of the sexual response cycle. The sexual response cycle refers to the phases such as excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution. Arousal and desire are essential phases for an individual or couple that are marked by excitement during sexual intercourse.

 

Sexual dysfunction is joint and affects as many as 30% of men and 40% of women. For couples dealing with infertility, it is even more common. Often, people ignore or downplay the sexual problems of infertile couples. Many think the issues will go away on their own or will not have long-term consequences. Though sexual function problems are shared worldwide, people are hesitant to discuss them for different reasons.

Sexual Dysfunction Causes

There are two main reasons for all sexual dysfunctions, which are discussed below:

 

Physical Causes
Often sexual dysfunctions are caused by a medical or physical condition. For example, health conditions such as liver failure, drug abuse, neurological disorders, diabetes, heart & vascular disease, alcoholism, kidney failure, and hormonal imbalances can become a reason for this. Moreover, some medications, such as antidepressant drugs, can affect sexual function.

 

Psychological Causes
Sometimes, non-physical reasons can contribute to such problems. When your mind is preoccupied or full of things that you hold necessary, you may not be able to focus on your personal needs, such as sexual desire. If you are stressed, dressed, have anxiety, or have any other psychological disorder, your sex life may also be disturbed.

Sexual Dysfunction

Responsible factors

Sexual dysfunction occurs when you have a problem that prevents you from getting aroused during sexual activity. It can occur in people of all age groups, though the chances are higher as you grow older. Stress is a very important reason for sexual dysfunction. Other causes like drug use, alcohol use, certain medications, trauma, or psychological disorders can be equally important.     

Sexual dysfunction can be caused by the following: 

 

1) Physical causes like heart problems, bladder problems, multiple sclerosis, cancer, and even kidney problems inhibit sexual desires. Your sexologist can help you identify the exact reason through multiple tests. 

 

2) Medication-related problems like antidepressants, chemotherapy drugs, blood pressure medications, and occasionally antihistamines decrease the body’s ability to experience orgasm. 

 

3) Hormonal problems- The decrease in hormonal levels leads to decreased blood flow to the pelvic region resulting in less genital sensation, which in turn causes changes in sexual responsiveness. In such cases, you need the best sexologist expert for males to plan better treatment. 

 

4) Psychological problems like untreated anxiety and depression, stress, and sexual abuse can also diminish sexual responsiveness. 

 

5) Social problems like conflicts with your partner, cultural and religious issues, and body image issues might also be the reason for sexual dysfunction. Consult a male sexologist in Dubai to discuss your case more openly to plan better treatment.

Sexual dysfunction is a problem that can happen during any phase of the sexual response cycle. It prevents you from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity. The sexual response cycle traditionally includes excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution.

 

Frustration, anxiety, depression, loss of self-esteem, anger -- all are examples of emotions that both partners may (and often do) feel as a result of sexual dysfunction.

 

So erectile dysfunction can be cured, but it depends on the cause. Some causes of ED are easier to “cure” than others. But, with the right diagnosis, support, and treatment, ED can go away without the need for ED medications like Viagra (sildenafil) or Cialis (Tadalafil).

 

Prolonged alcoholism causes permanent nerve damage that can result in permanent erectile dysfunction. For sexual function problems treatment, you need to quit alcohol. Alcohol also causes an increase in angiotensin, a hormone directly linked with erectile dysfunction.

 

Infertility treatments often bring stress, psychological demands, and physically intrusive procedures. These can affect a person’s sexual self-image, desire, and performance. For many couples, making love is a way to connect emotionally. When their sex lives are associated with failure, frustration, anger, and resentment, they can lose this way of showing their emotions. The pressure to perform and to have (or abstain from) sex due to infertility treatment plans can push couples even further apart. Fertility treatments can make sex less spontaneous and less enjoyable. As sex becomes focused on baby-making, couples often stop lovemaking for sexual pleasure.

These issues can get worse as fertility treatments go on. It does not matter if a couple already had sexual dysfunction or if the problems started with infertility treatments. Sexual dysfunction can take a significant toll on emotional well-being. It can also increase the disappointment of not having children and the distress of medical treatment.
