Sexuality disorders

"Precipitating factors are known to be an initial fortuitous failure in intimate relationships or, more often, an alteration of the relationship".


What is a sexuality disorder?

Sexuality disorders increase in incidence and prevalence year after year. The causes of these disorders can be multiple. Having or having suffered alterations in the family relations, an inadequate sexual education or a traumatic sexual experience can be some of the predisposing factors.

In addition, various factors such as anticipation of failure, feelings of guilt in the face of sexual relations or a loss of attraction, are factors that can cause this disorder to be maintained.

The most frequent sexuality disorders in men are difficulties in erection and premature ejaculation, although others such as delayed or absent ejaculation or hypoactive sexual desire are also treated.

In women, the most frequent disorders are hypoactive sexual desire, followed by anorgasmia and vaginismus.
