Sexual Dysfunction in Men and Women
The most common problems related to sexual dysfunction in women include:
- Inhibited sexual desire (this involves a lack of sexual desire or interest in sex)
- Inability to become aroused
- Lack of orgasm
- Painful intercourse
The estimated rates for the various sexual disorders in 18-49 years old women:
- 30% to 32% lacked interest in sex
- 18% to 21% had lubrication difficulties
- 22% to 28% could not achieve orgasm
- 13% to 21% experienced pain during intercourse
The most common problems men face with sexual dysfunction are troubles with ejaculation, getting and keeping an erection, and reduced sexual desire.
Problems with ejaculation are: Premature ejaculation (PE), ejaculation that occurs before or too soon after penetration.
Most common Sexual Dysfunction (SD) in males are:
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
- Premature Ejaculation (PME)
- Decreased desire
- Inability to achieve orgasm
The Asian studies reported the prevalence of Erectile Dysfunction at 7%–15% rate of ED for ages 40–49 years and 39%–49% for ages 60–70 years.
Persistent, recurrent problems with sexual response, desire, orgasm or pain that distress you or strain your relationship with your partner are known medically as sexual dysfunction.
Causes of Sexual Dysfunction
Physical: Any number of medical conditions, including cancer, kidney failure, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and bladder problems, can lead to sexual dysfunction
Hormonal: Lower estrogen levels after menopause may lead to changes in your genital tissues and sexual responsiveness
Psychological and social: Psychological factors are responsible for about 10%-20% of all cases of erectile dysfunction(ED). This can lead to “performance anxiety,” or a fear of sexual failure, and consistently lead to ED.
Tests (Diagnosis) of Sexual Dysfunction
This might include careful examination of your penis and testicles and checking your nerves for sensation.
During the exam, your doctor checks for physical changes that affect your sexual enjoyment, such as thinning of your genital tissues, decreased skin elasticity, scarring or pain.
Blood tests: A sample of your blood might be sent to a lab to check for signs of heart disease, diabetes, low testosterone levels and other health conditions.
Lifestyle Changes to Better Sexual Health
A study published in May 2014 in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that erectile dysfunction can be reversed in men by leading a healthy lifestyle, such as exercise, weight loss, a varied diet, and good sleep.
