Painful intercourse affects up to one in ten women, and may come on suddenly, build over time or be present from first intercourse. Regardless of the cause, painful intercourse can interfere with a woman’s confidence and quality of life. Sex therapy can help identify treatments, increase coping skills and address the emotional impact of this painful condition.
Low desire is one of the most common sexual concerns, for both women and men. Once it becomes a concern in a relationship, sex becomes a source of tension and worry. Sex therapy can help the two of you end the negativity and increase your desire.
Differing Levels of Desire
When one partner’s level of sexual desire is higher than the other’s, there can be a strain in the relationship. At times, this strain can turn into tension in other areas. In turn, this may make the lower desire partner even less likely to feel in the mood. Sex therapy can help stop the cycle and bring pleasure back into your lives.
Some couples find that the passion has waned and sex just isn’t as exciting as it once was. Other couples have never been able to talk openly about their needs and wants in the bedroom. Sex therapy can help you discover your sexual needs and bring back the passion.
Ejaculation Difficulties (Rapid or Delayed)
Ejaculatory problems (including delayed ejaculation, rapid ejaculation and inability to ejaculate) are among the most common sexual concerns for men. Sex therapy can help identify the cause of ejaculation problems and increase sexual satisfaction.
Inability to have Intercourse
Individuals and couples who have been unable to have intercourse (sometimes referred to as unconsummated relationships) may feel like they are the only ones with this problem. In fact, many couples have been unable to achieve intercourse despite a desire to do so. If you wish to be able to have penile-vaginal intercourse but have been unable to do so, sex therapy can help.
Almost one in six couples experience struggles with infertility. Fertility problems can affect your sense of self, your relationship with your partner and your sex life. Therapy can help you cope with the stress of infertility.
Trust after Infidelity
Affairs cause great damage to a relationship, whether the affair is emotional or physical. You may wonder if your relationship will ever recover. You may wonder how you can be intimate with your partner after they have had an affair. Therapy can help you heal the pain and rebuild a trusting, intimate relationship.
Body Image and Low Self-Esteem
Many people, both men and women, suffer from low self-esteem, low self-confidence or poor body image. This can interfere with your relationship and with your satisfaction with intimacy. Therapy can help you feel good about yourself.
Sexual Trauma such as Sexual Assault or Incest
Sexual assault and incest can have long-lasting impacts on all areas of your life, including your ability to trust in relationships and to enjoy sex. You may miss your old self and wonder if you will ever be that person again. Therapy can help heal the pain of sexual assault or incest.
Redefining Sex after Life Changes
Illness, disability and even life stage (such as becoming new parents) can impact your sex life. For many reasons, there may come a time when you just can’t “do sex” like you used to. Sex therapy can help you redefine what sex is, and bring back the fun and passion to your intimate life.
