A sexual problem, or sexual dysfunction, refers to a problem during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from the sexual activity. The sexual response cycle has four phases: excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution.While research suggests that sexual dysfunction is common (43% of women and 31% of men report some degree of difficulty), it is a topic that many people are hesitant to discuss. Fortunately, most cases of sexual dysfunction are treatable, so it is important to share your concerns with your partner and doctor.Both men and women are affected by sexual problems. They can occur in adults of all ages.Among those commonly affected are seniors, which may be related to a decline in health associated with aging.


Failure to achieve an erection occasionally is not unusual; many men report having erection problems sometimes.

Warning signs:-
Your sexual dysfunction may be trying to tell you that something else is wrong. Impotence may be a warning sign for another problem.
