Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction diagnosis and treatment requires an experienced and specialized practice that truly understands the full scope of variables that may contribute to sexual disfunction disorders.  The related conditions that your sexual dysfunction specialist will often examine and address may include erectile dysfunction treatment, vaginal dryness, pain, lack of libido or sex drive, lack of sexual response and inability to reach sexual orgasm or climax.  Finding an experienced sexual dysfunction or erectile dysfunction doctor in Houston that you can trust to properly evaluate and treat your specific situation is your first step towards finding a solution.

The term sexual dysfunction refers to a number of issues that may occur during any phase of the sexual response cycle thereby preventing or interfering with an individual’s or a couple’s sexual intimacy and activity levels to their satisfaction.  The sexual response cycle is best described in four phases typically referenced as excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution.

Sexual dysfunction can have many causes that are not necessarily related to pre-existing disease.  Contributing factors may include stress, drug use, alcohol consumption, smoking, bicycling activities or relationship level factors.  In many cases, hormonal imbalance or hormone deficiency can also be a primary cause of many issues affecting sexual function.  Testosterone is a hormone that directly affects sex drive but it’s not the only factor when evaluating hormonal deficiency variables.  Estrogen dominance, progesterone levels and prolactin hormone levels can also have significant impacts upon sexual abilities and performance.  Thus, the proper approach is to first ensure that all hormones are in the proper optimized balance to restore the foundation for sexual health.  As this is done, other factors and variables which may be affecting the patient will include an analysis of any current medications, especially anti-depressants and their potential side effects; blood chemistry and metabolic lab analysis, thyroid analysis, and lifestyle analysis.

Other related medical conditions to be examined should include diabetes, vascular and circulatory system disease, neurological factors including depression, alcoholism and drug use.  Psychologically, patients may be experiencing high stress and anxiety associated with lifestyle or work schedules, marital or relationship problems, depression, guilt, self-esteem and body image issues and the lingering effects of prior sexual experiences or traumas.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

 

I don’t understand why I’ve lost my interest in sex.  I have no sex drive.  Why is this?

Many people as they enter into their 30’s and 40’s, begin to experience diminished sexual drive and performance issues.  Often this is a combination of many factors but the major underlying cause in men and women is hormone imbalance or hormone deficiency.  Bioidentical hormone therapy can provide dramatic improvements in this area.

 

My erections are sometimes less firm or rigid, and sometimes they disappear during sex.  What is happening?

As men age, they begin to experience symptoms associated with many health factors that can affect sexual performance and desire.  Hormonal deficiency, metabolic balance, current medication side effects, especially anti-depressants and hypertension medications, alcohol, vascular / circulatory health and general lifestyle / relationship issues can all play a role to undermine sexual performance.
