Understanding Couple Sex Problems

When it comes to sexual dysfunction, people often don’t realize that relationships too can take an emotional hit. Due to the stigma associated with sexual dysfunction, many individuals are embarrassed or nervous to reach out for help. We know that symptoms of sexual disorders themselves take a physical and mental toll on a person, this often trickles down to their partner as well, should they have one.

Raising awareness that working as a unit is essential in treating sexual dysfunction in couples is one of the main goals experts have. The understanding is that relationship concerns due to sexual concerns - in one or both partners - can lead to unconsummated relationships or marriages. It is important to realize that common sexual disorders such as Erectile Dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation, Vaginismus, Performance Anxiety, and Delayed Ejaculation can lead to unsatisfactory sex, intimacy concerns, unconsummated relationships, infertility, mental health concerns etc.

Infertility refers to a condition where a male or a female may have problems with their reproductive system or sexual dysfunction that limits them from conceiving. It affects millions of people around the world, and at times is associated with immense stigma. There are various causes of infertility - from biological or psychological and experts treat their patients based on the cause determined after a thorough examination.

Frequently asked questions

How does stress affect sexual health?

Stress triggers the release of cortisol, a hormone that leads to lower levels of testosterone which can lead to sexual dysfunction symptoms. Furthermore, it can also alter brain signals needed for the genital organs to have optimal blood flow during sexual activity.

Is there an association between diet and sexual health?

From medications to psychosexual therapy, there are ways to help treat the symptoms of ED, PE, and other sexual disorders. However, many often forget that their lifestyle habits can bring about changes in their sexual health as well. One lifestyle modification that many take for granted is diet — a bad diet can cause many things from medical conditions such as hypertension to affecting sexual health and function. For example, there are foods that improve erectile function by aiding in improved blood flow, and increased testosterone and nitric oxide production.

How does exercising help with sexual wellness?

Aerobic and pelvic floor exercises are highly recommended as a lifestyle modification while dealing with sexual dysfunction or disorders. These types of exercises help improve incontinence, manage conditions such as prostatitis and BPH, and of course, increase male sexual pleasure by helping men have greater control over ejaculation and orgasm. Cardio exercises help in keeping the blood vessels clear, and so, have the ability to improve one’s sex life. Sexual dysfunctions such as ED, are commonly caused by problems with the blood flow to the penis. Factors such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or concerns in weight management leading to obesity, can affect blood flow and lead to ED symptoms. Aerobic exercises help in all these conditions and improve sexual functioning.

How does depression and/or anxiety lead to sexual dysfunction?

While it is common knowledge that physical medical conditions or injuries can lead to sexual dysfunction, the fact that mental health conditions can also be a cause is often missed. When experiencing conditions such as depression and anxiety, an individual's mind and body are in a constant state of stress. This leads to the release of a hormone called cortisol - chronic high levels of this hormone can lead to the decrease of testosterone in the body. Low testosterone can lead to conditions such as low libido and erectile dysfunction. Depression is also characterised by a general lack of drive in all activities including sexual intimacy.

How can low testosterone lead to sexual dysfunction?

Testosterone, the male hormone, is closely associated with a male's sex drive and sexual performance. Low levels of this hormone can cause sexual dysfunction symptoms and disorders such as low libido and erectile dysfunction.

What does sexual dysfunction treatment include?

Sexual dysfunction is a broad term that explains persistent discomfort or difficulty with sexual response, desire, or orgasm. Conditions such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation fall under the sexual dysfunction category. Evidence-based and clinically proven sexual dysfunction treatments may include oral tablets, VED (vacuum erection device), injections, and/or surgery - the choice is dependent on the patient’s medical history and treatment plan.

Are sexual problems in marriages common?

Sexual disorders are much more common than many realize. They can affect relationships emotionally and psychologically. However, addressing sexual dysfunction with a professional can help both partners.

Does Allo provide therapy sessions?

Sexual wellness from a holistic point of view caters to both the physical and psychological aspects of any diagnosed condition. There is a major psychological component to sexual disorders, for which we provide uninterrupted access to experts in the field.
