Disorders of Sexual Interest/Desire & Arousal
Our Doctors and Therapists at Need More Clinic are here to help you!
What is a Sexual Dysfunction?
Sexual Desire can be displayed by an individuals sexual thoughts and fantasies, interest in initiating or participating in sexual activities, and being aware of sexual gestures from others.
When an individual is having difficulty responding to sex or any sort of sexual experience, they may have a sexual dysfunction disorder. To qualify for a diagnosis (depending on the type of disorder an individual is experiencing) they must be having difficulty with these sexual experiences frequently and more than just occasionally. These experiences must last for at least 6 months and happening most of the time throughout that period. If it is causing an individual distress and impairment and not due to a psychiatric issue, then a diagnosis can be drawn. These experiences must not be caused from medications or any other general health issues, including every day stress.
