WHAT IS SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION?
Sexual dysfunction refers to difficulty experienced by a man or woman during any stage of a normal sexual activity, including desire, arousal or orgasm. Sexual dysfunction disorders can be classified into four categories: sexual desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasm disorders and pain disorders. These disorders may be caused by psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression; medical illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure; certain medications, including some anti-depressants; and relationship difficulties.
The success of treatment for sexual dysfunction depends on the underlying cause of the problem. The outlook is good for dysfunction that is related to a treatable or reversible physical condition. Mild dysfunction that is related to stress, fear, or anxiety often can be successfully treated with hormone replacement, since men with low levels of testosterone may benefit from bio-identical hormones. Medications, such as Cialis, Viagra or Levitra may help improve sexual function in men by increasing blood flow to the penis. Nutraceuticals (herbs, vitamins, and mineral supplements) can help as well. Sexual dysfunction differs for men and women.
There are six categories that that medically qualify as sexual dysfunctions in women and they are:
(1) Desire disorders: A decrease in sexual interest, desire, sexual thoughts, fantasies, and an absence of responsive desire.
(2) Arousal disorders: A lack of feeling a sexual response in your body or you cannot stay sexually aroused.
(3) Orgasmic disorders: An inability to reach orgasm or experiencing pain during orgasm
(4) Dyspareunia – Sexual pain disorders – Pain during or after sex.
(5) Vaginismus – Reflexive tightening around the vagina when vaginal entry is attempted or completed despite women’s expressed desire for penetration when no structural or other physical abnormalities are present.
(6) Persistent genital arousal disorder – Excessive genital arousal
Men’s sexual dysfunctions are related to ejaculation and erection. These dysfunctions can be treated with anti-aging medicine.
(1) Premature ejaculation – This refers to ejaculation that occurs before or soon after penetration. It is the most common form of sexual dysfunction in men, often is due to psychological factors. Certain drugs, including some anti-depressants, may affect ejaculation, as can nerve damage to the spinal cord or back.
(2) Inhibited or retarded ejaculation – This is when ejaculation is slow to occur. A man affected by retarded ejaculation is unable to attain orgasm following a normal level of sexual excitement. The man in question may regularly experience delays in orgasm, or may be unable to attain orgasm altogether.
(3) Retrograde ejaculation – This occurs when, at orgasm, the ejaculate is forced back into the bladder rather than through the urethra and out the end of the penis. It is common in males with diabetes who suffer from diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage). This is due to problems with the nerves in the bladder and the bladder neck that allow the ejaculate to flow backward and into the bladder. In addition, certain medications, particularly those used to treat mood disorders, may cause problems with ejaculation. This generally does not require treatment unless it impairs fertility.
Also known as impotence, or the inability to attain and/or maintain an erection suitable for intercourse. Causes of erectile dysfunction:
• Diseases affecting blood flow, such as atherosclerosis, which is hardening of the arteries.
• Nerve Disorders.
• Injury to the penis.
• Psychological factors, such as stress, depression, and performance anxiety.
