Sexual Problems

A sexual problem, or sexual dysfunction, refers to a problem  during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents  the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from  the sexual activity.

While research suggests that sexual dysfunction is common  (43% of women and 31% of men report some degree of difficulty), it is a topic that many people are hesitant to discuss. Fortunately, most cases of sexual dysfunction are treatable, so it is important to share your concerns with your partner and doctor.

Causative factors

Physical causes –

Many physical and/or medical conditions can cause problems with sexual function. These conditions include diabetes, heart and vascular (blood vessel) disease, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, chronic diseases such as kidney or liver failure, and alcoholism and drug abuse. In addition, the side effects of certain medications, including some antidepressant drugs, can affect sexual desire and function.

Psychological causes –

These include work-related stress and anxiety, concern about sexual performance, marital or relationship problems, depression, feelings of guilt, and the effects of a past sexual trauma.


  1. Homoeopathic medicine

Approaching patient as a complete individual and not treating just the sexual problem is the specialty of homeopathic therapeutic science. This is very significant for the patients with sexual problems, because, behind every sexual dysfunction there is a disordered sexuality; behind every disordered sexuality there is imbalanced personality; and, behind every imbalanced personality there is a disturbed person with discord & dissatisfaction in his/her relationship.

Homeopathy, with its holistic approach, heals not only the sexual ailment, but also helps the person in achieving the emotional, interpersonal and spiritual well-being. This is essential in building up of the healthy individual, healthy couple, healthy family & healthy society in the sphere of sexual health.
