Common sexual Disorders:

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)-Occurs when a male can't get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. It can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. It can cause stress, relationship strain, and low self-confidence.

Vaginal Dryness: Changes in hormone production can cause the vaginal walls to thin as women age. Thinner walls mean fewer cells that secrete moisture. This can lead to vaginal dryness. Hormonal changes are the most common cause of vaginal dryness, but they aren’t the only cause amongst breastfeeding, cigarette smoking, depression, excessive stress, immune system disorders, childbirth, rigorous exercise, and some cancer treatments, such as radiation to the pelvis, or chemotherapy
