If you are experiencing sex problems, you may feel alone and helpless. Shame, fear, anger and embarrassment are other common emotions felt by people living with sexual dysfunction, and many will suffer for months, even years, being too afraid to discuss their concerns with anyone.
Problems around sex are very common, and can occur for any number of reasons. In the majority of cases they are linked to other challenges and difficulties. For example, when you are feeling stressed and have a lot on your mind, or frustrated with your partner, you don’t often feel like having sex or being intimate. This knock-on effect is usually mild and temporary and will soon dissipate, but if a sexual problem is more severe and complex, it can have stronger and longer-term effects on your sexuality, your self-confidence, your relationships and your way of life.
Seeking help, as soon as possible, is vital for ensuring your sex problems do not have far-reaching consequences. Sex therapy is highly effective for addressing the causes of sexual dysfunction, and for helping people to develop healthier attitudes towards sex and intimacy.
