Sexual Dysfunction Q & A

What are the signs of sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction is any condition that interrupts the sexual cycle — involving arousal, plateau, and orgasm — and prevents an individual or couple from enjoying sexual intimacy. 

Sexual dysfunction can cause problems in men like:

  • Difficulty getting and maintaining an erection
  • Lack of ejaculation or a delay in ejaculation despite sexual stimulation
  • Early or premature ejaculation

Both men and women can lack a desire for or interest in sex, have trouble becoming aroused, or experience pain during intercourse. 

Women may have problems like:

  • Difficulty reaching orgasm
  • Lack of lubrication
  • Muscle spasms in the vaginal area that prevent intercourse

Although sexual dysfunction is common, it’s not normal, and Flagstaff Surgical Associates offers treatment options to help.

What causes sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction has a number of causes for men, including:

  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
  • Prostate cancer
  • Decreased testosterone levels
  • Problems with nerves or blood flow to the penis

Men and women can both experience difficulty with intercourse due to other medical conditions, like diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease. 

Flagstaff Surgical Associates provides treatment and referrals as needed to ensure you receive the proper treatment for any other medical conditions you have.

Women can experience sexual dysfunction due to:

  • Perimenopause
  • Menopause
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Gynecologic conditions

Your doctor works with you to identify the cause of your sexual dysfunction, so you receive appropriate treatment options.

Can sexual dysfunction be treated?

Yes, sexual dysfunction can be treated in a variety of ways. For people with primary medical conditions causing sexual dysfunction, managing the primary condition often improves sexual pleasure.

For those without other medical conditions, Flagstaff Surgical Associates offers in-office laser treatment with the MonaLisa Touch® to enhance sexual pleasure.

How does the MonaLisa Touch relieve sexual dysfunction?

The MonaLisa Touch procedure is a five-minute in-office treatment that uses controlled laser energy to enhance circulation to the vaginal tissues in women and penis in men while also stimulating collagen formation for greater elasticity in the vaginal tissues. 

With improved blood flow, women can experience improved lubrication, and men can enjoy more effective erections for sexual intercourse.
