Sexual dysfunction and infertility

Sexual dysfunction is an issue that prevents an individual from enjoying or wanting to have sex, which is most often related to sexual desire, arousal, orgasm or pain during intercourse. Any of these conditions can prevent effective resolution of sexual activity that might result in conception.

Sexual dysfunction is common and can occur in people of all ages, affecting as many as 30% of men and 40% of women, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. It is even more common for couples dealing with infertility, as treatments such as IVF can bring on psychological and physical demands that trigger dysfunction.

Many factors can influence sexual dysfunction, including:

  • Stress.
  • History of sexual trauma.
  • Psychological issues.
  • Diabetes.
  • Hormonal factors.
  • Certain medications.
  • Vascular factors (issues affecting blood vessels).
