Sexual health encompasses a combination of physical, mental, and emotional factors. If any of these factors are out of balance, sexual dysfunction and deficiency can be a direct result. Poor sexual health is generally the first sign of physical aging while mental and emotional dysfunctions can quickly manifest. Symptoms of sexual health deficiency include low libido, erectile dysfunction, poor stamina, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, or premature ejaculation. These symptoms often strain both the individual and their partner, decreasing overall quality of life, causing stress, and imbalances in the body.
Symptoms of Sexual Health Deficiency:
- Low Libido
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Poor Stamina
- Vaginal Dryness
- Painful Intercourse
- Premature Ejaculation
As men and women age, their body’s imbalances divert the energy, hormones, and nutrition needed for optimum sexual health, to deal with the accumulating stressors of everyday life and the aging body. Poor sexual health is generally the first sign of physical aging while mental and emotional dysfunctions can manifest as a result, straining both the individual and partner-based relationships, decreasing overall quality of life.
