Sexual dysfunctions and psychology
Many sexual disorders are closely related to psychological disorders and traumas, it is important to identify them in order to find the most suitable treatment and solution and recover a healthy and pleasurable sexual life.
Female orgasmic disorder
Female orgasmic disorder consists on the absence or the persistent and recurrent delay of the orgasm after a phase of normal sexual arousal. Women show a great variability on the type of intensity and stimulation they require to have an orgasm, however in the presence of a female orgasmic disorder the woman experiences a lot of difficulty to have an orgasm even if she is receiving an appropriate stimulation.
The disorder can last the entire life, or it can just appear on certain occasions or with certain partners, everything depends on the cause of the disorder. About ten percent of female population is unable to experience even a single orgasm during the entire life, independently if they receive the appropriate stimulation. In general, women can experience an orgasm with stimulation of clitoris, but more than a half of female population is unable of having an orgasm during sexual intercourse with penetration, unless the clitoris gets the stimuli required the penetration.
Male orgasmic disorder (delayed ejaculation)
On the male orgasmic disorder, the erection is maintained, but it is produced a recurrent or persistent absence or delay of the orgasm. Delayed ejaculation affects men in rare cases, however as the man ages it takes longer for him to have an orgasm.
The premature ejaculation is an ejaculation that happens too fast, generally before, during or a little bit after the penetration and before than what is desired by the person. This problem frequently affects teenagers and it can become persistent if the person associates sexual intercourse with something forbidden.
The fear to cause a pregnancy or to have a sexually transmitted disease, as the anxiety for having an appropriate performance during sexual intercourse can also become contributing factors for premature ejaculation. Similar concerns can remain on the adult stage or even their severity can be increased to relationship problems.
The dyspareunia is a deep pelvic or genital pain experienced during sexual intercourse in a persistent or recurrent way, both on men and women, though this disorder is more frequent on women. On a woman who has never had sex, the hymen can cover partially or completely the entrance to the vagina, the penetration of the penis during the first sexual encounter can break this membrane and cause pain. Also the lack of lubrication on the vagina can cause pain, as a common result of the lack of an adequate sexual stimulation. A contraceptive improperly set or an allergy to contraceptive creams can irritate the vagina and the cervix. A woman affected by dyspareunia can develop fear and anxiety when it comes about sexual intercourse. There are many other psychological factors with an important incidence on the emergence of dyspareunia, among them is the repulsion to the partner.
