Understanding Sexual Arousal Disorder

Sexual arousal is complex. Sometimes, the factors that affect arousal are not a “Disorder” but rather a natural reaction to a relationship. Some people also struggle with sexual arousal, but do not find it to be a problem. But for others, the inability to be aroused and feel intimacy is something that causes them and their partners stress, and when that happens, it is often useful to seek treatment.

Sexual arousal disorder can stem from a range of causes, many of which may be mental and emotional, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Exhaustion
  • Relationship Challenges
  • Past Abuse
  • Body Image
  • Beliefs About Sex

Physical health can also play a part in sexual arousal disorder. Age, low sex hormones, a recent pregnancy, or other physical health conditions and their medications can reduce your ability to become aroused.

An effective solution for sexual arousal disorder will consider all of the potential causes of your disorder and adapt a treatment accordingly. Sexual arousal disorder has several types of medications available that can help increase libido. We may also discuss therapy, including both talk therapy and therapeutic measures to help stimulate your sex drive. Talk therapy in particular can give you the tools to mitigate stress and mood disorders that impact your sexual performance.

If we determine that depression, anxiety, PTSD, or another mental health concern is playing a part in your sexual dysfunction, Dr. Sehdev has the training and expertise to treat a variety of mental health conditions as well.
