Sexual Health Concerns

More than 40% of adults report a problem or concern regarding sex at some point in their life.

Sexual function, response and attitude are influenced by mental health, social and environmental factors, family, religion and relationship dynamics from past and current partners.

Sexual dysfunction is a complication in one or more of the sexual response cycles or sexual pain that causes distress.
