Sexual problems are an issue that many people are hesitant to discuss – but research shows that sexual dysfunction is a common occurrence: 43% of women and 31% of men report some degree of difficulty. Fortunately, most sexual problems are treatable, and sex therapy and counseling can help.
Psychological factors like stress, worry, anxiety, feelings of guilt, past sexual trauma, and depression are common culprits of sexual dysfunction. When a sexual problem is mismanaged or only partially treated, it is sometimes common that the condition will subside temporarily but resurface again. If the cycle continues, it reinforces failure and can eventually cause people not to access any help and suffer the problem their entire lives. So, it is important to get a thorough assessment from professionals and therapists who are qualified to manage sexual problems.
Physical factors such as heart disease, neurological issues, diabetes, hormonal imbalance, chronic diseases such as kidney and liver failure, or drug or alcohol use, can contribute to sexual problems as well. Sexual dysfunction is a difficult problem to face – but talking to a therapist can help. At Sage Therapy, we understand your need to be discreet while we help you overcome the sexual problem that you may be dealing with.
