Common Sexual Problems

Premature Ejaculation (PME)

Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than average expected time. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. As many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time. As long as it happens infrequently, it's not cause for concern.

 Diagnostic criteria for premature ejaculation if you:

  •  Always or nearly always ejaculate within one minute of penetration
  •  Are unable to delay ejaculation during intercourse all or nearly all of the time
  •  Feel distressed and frustrated, and tend to avoid sexual intimacy as a result

Both psychological and biological factors can play a role in premature ejaculation. Although many men feel embarrassed to talk about it, premature ejaculation is a common and treatable condition. Medications, counseling and sexual techniques that delay ejaculation — or a combination of these — can help improve sex for you and your partner.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) occurs when a man can no longer get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Having erection trouble from time to time isn't necessarily a cause for concern. But if erectile dysfunction is an ongoing problem, it may cause stress, cause relationship problems or affect your self-esteem.

Talk with your doctor about erectile dysfunction, go in for an evaluation. Problems getting or keeping an erection can be a sign of a medical condition that needs treatment, such as heart disease or poorly controlled diabetes. Treating an underlying problem may be enough to improve your erectile dysfunction.

If treating an underlying condition doesn't help your erectile dysfunction, medications or other direct treatments may help.

Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) occurs when a woman experiences distress due to problems with sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, or pain. Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), also known as "low libido" or "low sexual desire," is the most common complaint among women experiencing sexual dysfunction. HSDD is defined as the deficiency or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity that causes significant personal distress or interpersonal difficulty (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). Women have reported that a lack of sexual desire negatively affects their quality of life, physical and emotional satisfaction, and overall happiness.
