The Silent Battle in the Bedroom

A significant number of couples struggle with sexual dysfunction. Women may experience arousal and orgasm difficulties, a waning sex drive, or pain during intercourse, while men may battle with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and even low libido. All of these take their toll on a couple's sex life.

The numbers are startling: Nearly half of women and one-third of men report one or more problems with their sexual function — and when one person suffers from sexual dysfunction, both partners pay the price. Unfortunately, out of that number, only about 10 percent of men and 20 percent of women seek help. You don't have to do the math to see that many couples are suffering with sexual dysfunction in silence.

If you or your partner is plagued by an ongoing sexual complaint (one that has been a problem for six months or longer), it's important for both of you to seek help. Whether you see a licensed therapist or your family practitioner, having a conversation about your concerns is the first step. Reach out for help if you're one of the many who suffer from sexual dysfunction — for your partner, for your relationship, and for yourself.
