Your primary care physician can be a good place to start if you have sexual health concerns. Your primary care physician can check on any mediation that you are taking and any health issues you are dealing with and see if they are having an impact on your libido or sexual function.
Other doctors that can help you with sexual health concerns are an ob-gyn or urologist. They work with specific functions of the reproductive system and have a good understanding of the health issues that can cause a low sex drive or forms of dysfunction.
There are also doctors who specialize in sexual medicine.
Your sexual issues may be related to issues with your relationship or past experiences. If this is the case, then a therapist or counselor is the right choice for dealing with sexual issues.
For female sexual health concerns, it is probably a good decision to see a gynecologist. A gynecologist has the specialized training to deal with issues related to the reproductive system. Sexual dysfunction in women can be related to factors like depression, aging, menopause, physical changes, and medications. These are the kinds of things that a gynecologist will understand much better than a primary care physician. Since a gynecologist specializes in women’s reproductive health, they can address the physical and medical issues that affect sexual health.
When you have recurrent or persistent problems with sexual response, desire, orgasm, or pain when having sex, and this is causing difficulty with your relationship, you are dealing with sexual dysfunction. Many women will experience problems with sexual function and some have problems throughout their lives.
Female sexual dysfunction can happen at any point in life. It may be isolated to specific sexual situations or all sexual situations.
Sexual response is a complex relationship between physiology, experiences, emotions, beliefs, lifestyle, and relationships. When one or more of these gets disrupted, it can affect sexual arousal, desire, or satisfaction.
Symptoms of sexual dysfunction can include:
– Low sexual desire is the most common female sexual dysfunction.
– Sexual arousal disorder comes when you have the desire for sex but have trouble becoming aroused, or are not able to maintain arousal during sexual activity.
– Orgasmic disorder is the difficulty of achieving an orgasm after sufficient arousal or stimulation. If this is persistent or recurrent, it is a form of sexual dysfunction.
– Sexual pain disorder is defined as pain that is associated with sexual stimulation or vaginal contact.
If the problems you are encountering sexually are having a negative impact on your relationship or are causing stress, it is recommended to see a doctor.
