Should You Optimize Sexual Health as a Couple?

Sexual Health issues don’t only affect men. It affects the couple in the relationship and sexual dysfunction happens to both men and women.

As we grow older, changes to our body and health status can interfere with our sexual health. Loss of libido (sex drive) is a common problem affecting up to 1 in 5 men – and even more women – at some point in their life.

However, an unexpected loss of libido – especially when it lasts for a long time or keeps returning – can also indicate an underlying personal, medical or lifestyle problem, which can be upsetting to both partners in a relationship.

Sexual dysfunction is a problem that can happen at any age during any phase of the sexual response cycle. It can prevent you from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity.

Sexual dysfunction generally is classified into 4 categories:

Desire disorders: lack of sexual desire or interest in sex.

Arousal disorders: inability to become physically aroused or excited during sexual activity.

Orgasm disorders: delay or absence of orgasm (climax).

Pain disorders: pain during intercourse.

If you experience any of the above, it is recommended to mention it to your hormonal wellness doctor and also to your partner.
