Sex therapy and sexual health.

Sex therapy is a life saver when problems in the bedroom link to problems in the relationship, a person’s comfort level with emotional intimacy and more. But issues like pain and low desire — even trouble with orgasms — often have roots in physiological imbalances (hormones, neurotransmitters, muscle spasms.) So while you’re looking into sex therapy, consider finding a doc who will evaluate you medically. If he or she tells you it’s all in your head, or a glass of Chardonnay will help, you’re seeing the wrong doc!

If seeing a sex therapist, either alone or with your partner, seems the right course of action for you, there are some resources you can tap into for guidance. For example, Sheknowslove.com has an entry as does our own site, including guidelines for choosing a sex therapist.
