When a couple receives therapy to repair their relationship they often describe obstacles relating to communication, jealousy and infidelity. An equally common issue that effects couples are sexual disorders or dysfunctions.
Statistically, 50-70% of couples identify relationship distress originating from sexual problems. These, as labeled by the DSM 5, can include Erectile Dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation, Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder in Women and Genital Pain in Men and Women. If there is no medical cause for these problems, couples counseling is recommended.
