Tests, treatments, drugs and diagnose
Sexologist treats the sexual disorders depending on the sex – men or women. In men, psychotherapy is very effective in treating sexual dysfunction, while in some cases of erectile dysfunction marriage counselling sessions are recommended. Intracavernous pharmacotherapy is another method used to treat the problem. Males are also suggested to make some lifestyle changes like quit smoking, drug or alcohol consumption.

Arousal and orgasm disorders in females are treated by using a vacuum device, which helps to increase blood flow to the clitoris and external genitalia. Pain relievers or desensitizing agents are prescribed to woman if she experiences pain during intercourse. Females suffering from sexual dysfunctions are also sometimes referred to therapist or counsellor for psychosocial counselling.
