Sexual dysfunction refers to a range of disorders that may affect your ability to enjoy sexual activity. They may be caused by physical, psychological or drug-related factors. Pelvic floor physiotherapy can be used to increase blood flow in the genital area by doing exercises specifically targeted at this region, which is necessary for normal sexual function. Research shows that pelvic floor physiotherapy can help treat pelvic pain, urinary urgency and frequency, and post-coital problems. Female sexual dysfunction may include painful sex (dyspareunia), no sex drive (libido) or lack of orgasm/arousal. Men with sexual dysfunction may experience premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction (ED), ejaculatory pain (dysorgasmia), or long time to achieve erection. Also, strengthening the muscles around the pelvis will improve sensation during sex and arousal levels.
Acupuncture can also help improve blood circulation to your reproductive organs. Stress and anxiety issues contributing to infertility can also be reduced, aiding conception. Moreover, you will also prime your body for optimum health, thus preparing your body to carry a pregnancy to term.
