Sexual Dysfunctions

Sexual Dysfunctions

Sexual dysfunctions (chronic sexual problem) are quite common in our society. The causes of sexual problems can be determined with appropriate approaches and these disorders can be treated at high rates. It is known that 30-60% of women experience at least one sexual dysfunction in their lifetime. About 40% of men experience at least one sexual dysfunction in their lifetime. Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual dysfunction in men and occurs in about one in 3-4 men.
In our Sexual Dysfunction Unit, necessary examinations and examinations are made for the causes of sexual problems, and appropriate treatment is initiated by the relevant specialists. The treatment of Sexual Dysfunctions is carried out in our hospital within the framework of the cooperation and coordination of competent and experienced psychiatry, urology and obstetricians. Depending on the cause of the sexual problem, sexual therapy and/or drug treatment options are applied by the relevant specialist.
The main disorders treated in our Sexual Dysfunctions Unit are as follows:

Vaginismus is the recurrent or continuous involuntary contractions of the muscles surrounding the outer third of the vagina during sexual intercourse. This contraction, which usually does not allow sexual intercourse, is not controlled by the woman herself and does not go awa on her will. The main disorder is involuntary contraction of the muscles at the entrance to the vagina, but in vaginismus, this may be accompanied by symptoms such as contractions in various parts of the body, sometimes in the whole body, frequent closure of the legs, fear, sometimes tremors, palpitations, sweating, nausea, even vomiting, feeling bad and crying.

Dyspareunia (Painful Sexual Intercourse)
It is the genital area pain accompanying during sexual intercourse. Since its association with vaginismus is common and is caused by similar reasons, it is now evaluated and discussed under the same heading as vaginismus. Due to pain during sexual activity, arousal disorder or orgasm disorder due to a short duration of arousal may be seen. Dyspareunia is the most common physical cause among female sexual problems. In a woman suffering from pain in sexual intercourse, whether there is a physical problem should be investigated by the obstetrician in the first place.

Sexual Desire Disorder
Sexual desire disorder is a situation where there is little or no desire to engage in sexual fantasy and sexual activity continuously or repetitively, taking into account the age and living conditions of the person. In other words, it is the state of having sexual dreams, talking about sexual matters, a decrease or no desire for almost anything that reminds you of sexuality. The woman has no or decreased desire to prepare, create, and initiate sexuality to create the environment that will create the sexual act in this disorder

Arousal Disorder and Inability to Orgasm
Despite stimulation, there are no changes in the vessels in the genital area. Normally, the veins in that area are filled with blood, that area gets wet and ultimately pleasure is taken. In women with this complaint, these results cannot be obtained despite being stimulated.
Orgasm disorder in women is the delay or absence of orgasm both during sexual intercourse and as a result of clitoral stimulation (such as masturbation). Sometimes the main cause of orgasm difficulties in women is premature ejaculation in men. Therefore, the problem should be questioned in detail. G-spot enlargement (G shot) and orgasm vaccine are among the effective treatment methods used in the treatment of these patients.
