Sexual dysfunctions in women and men: what they are and the most common

Sexual dysfunctions are a topic that, although it may seem taboo, is crucial in the lives of many people. These disorders significantly affect both men and women, affecting their emotional and physical well-being and their interpersonal relationships. Understanding the different facets of sexual dysfunctions is the first step to seeking effective solutions and recovering harmony in intimate life.

What are sexual dysfunctions?

Sexual dysfunction refers to any problem that arises during any phase of the sexual act (desire, arousal, orgasm, and resolution) that prevents the individual or couple from enjoying the sexual experience. These difficulties can often cause stress and problems in personal relationships.

Common types of sexual dysfunctions

Sexual dysfunctions do not discriminate. They can appear at any stage of adult life and manifest in different ways, impacting one or several aspects of the sexual response cycle, which includes desire, arousal, orgasm, and resolution. Among the most common we find:

  1. Inhibited sexual desire: Lack of interest in sexual activity, which may be due to emotional factors, physical factors, or a combination of both.
  2. Erectile dysfunction: Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection firm enough for intercourse.
  3. Premature/delayed ejaculation: When ejaculation happens too quickly or takes a long time.
  4. Pain during sex: Painful experiences in women, such as dyspareunia or vaginismus, and less commonly in men.

Causes and treatments

The causes of sexual dysfunctions can be physical, such as diseases, hormonal imbalances, alcoholism, drug addiction, or medications; psychological, such as stress, anxiety, guilt, or depression; Or a combination of both.
