Pelvic health can also be affected by sexual dysfunction, which can occur in both men and women. Some common types of sexual dysfunction include:
- Erectile dysfunction (ED): This occurs when a man is unable to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse.
- Female sexual dysfunction (FSD): This includes a wide range of conditions that can affect sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and pain during sex in women.
- Vaginal dryness: This is a common condition that can occur during menopause, or due to certain medications, radiation therapy or other conditions.
Treatment options for sexual dysfunction may include physiotherapy, medication, and in some cases, surgery. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the cause of sexual dysfunction and to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
