Sexual dysfunction

Specialty of Psychology

Sexual dysfunction is a disorder that hinders or prevents having a satisfactory sexual intercourse due to problems related to decreased libido (sexual desire), orgasm disorders, or disorders of pain in the genitals. Such dysfunctions affect both men and women, who may experience an aversion to or rejection of sexual contact, although it affects them in different ways. The most common types of sexual problems in men are: erectile dysfunction, which is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection; impotence, inability to maintain an erection long enough for intercourse at least 25% of the attempts; or ejaculatory dysfunction, which occurs when you cannot release semen during orgasm. The causes of these disorders can be diseases (diabetes, hormonal problems, depression) or taking certain medications or substances, among others. Sexual dysfunction in women can manifest as low sexual desire, difficulty becoming aroused or achieving orgasm, or pain. These disorders can be due to various psychological or physical problems (stress, infections, vaginismus).
