Sexual dysfunctions occur in both men and women and can
occur when you least expect it. One type of dysfunction
experienced by both men and women is sexual desire disorder.
There are many reasons why a person has this disorder. Some
factors that may cause this dysfunction are stress, anxiety, and
depression (pg. 494). A past sexual experience may also play
a part in this disorder as well as certain medications.
Having this disorder may mean that there are psychological
problems that may exist and contacting a professional is
recommended.The treatment that may help is sex therapy. This
can either involve one or both partners and helps to improve
communication between partners and techniques to help
promote it. Medication may help if hormone de%ciencies occur.
Men and women may be experiencing low levels of
testosterone as well as low levels of androgens (pg. 511).
