While the causes of sexual problems are varied and complex, they are not uncommon, affecting nearly half of all women and 30 percent of men. The most common types of sexual problems are lack of desire, difficulty becoming aroused and pain during intercourse
Some problems are attributed to a reversible gynecologic or medical problem. Others can be attributed to serious medical conditions, difficult life situations, relationship problems, emotional problems or a combination thereof.
Not all sexual problems require medical attention as many are temporary in nature. However, any sexual problem that lasts for more than a few weeks is worth a visit to the Center for Sexual Health and Intimacy at Richmond Ob-GYN.
Dr. Tracy Hicks and Dr. Diane Mrava have assembled a team of experts including sex therapist Katherine Bettin, Ph.D., physical therapist Cora Huitt and pharmacist Dr. Chris Currin.
