Specialties: Sexual Dysfunction

This can be generally defined as the inability to perform or fully enjoy sexual intercourse, be it physically or psychologically. Before diagnosis, a full physical exam and sexual history must be made, including other factors, such as current medication which may affect sexual functioning and psychological factors, such as marital stability and depression.

Common problems in men include:

  • erectile dysfunction
  • premature ejaculation
  • ejaculatory incompetence
Common female problems include:
  • sexual arousal disorder
  • orgasmic disorder
  • painful intercourse
Treatments of these problems are behavioral and physical psychotherapy, including counseling and medication.
