Often sexual problems are the result of both physical obstacles and emotional issues. Before committing to sex therapy to uncover the causes and stresses connected to sexual dysfunction, you may want to rule out any physical conditions that can be treated with relative ease and in a short time period.
In recent years, research into the area of female sexuality has become more focused. We are beginning to understand the complicated physiology of blood vessels and nerves in the pelvis and how surgeries, childbirth, illnesses, medications, hormonal changes and aging may affect a woman's sexual experience.
Solutions to physical causes of sexual dysfunction may be prescribed quickly and results are often apparent in a matter of months. Often, addressing these physical components while seeing a couples or individual sex counselor can prove to be uniquely helpful. The results you may achieve by attending to all the contributing factors may yield faster and more long-lasting results.
