What Is Sexual Dysfunction?
The term “sexual dysfunction” refers to various conditions that cause trouble having satisfying sexual experiences. This includes physical problems such as erection difficulties, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and urinary incontinence; emotional problems like depression, anxiety, stress, and fear of intimacy; and behavioural problems like poor communication and lack of foreplay.
Many types of sexual problems can affect one person or multiple people within a relationship.

It is important to note that treatment approaches for pelvic floor physiotherapy will vary depending on the individual’s specific needs. As such, not all approaches are applicable or effective for everyone.
Pelvic floor therapy:
Pelvic Floor Exercise Program helps men and women who suffer from erectile dysfunction, painful ejaculation, dyspareunia (painful intercourse), vaginismus (fear of penetration), vulvodynia (vaginal pain) and other forms of sexual dysfunction. The goal of pelvic floor therapy is to restore normal muscle function. These exercises strengthen muscles around the pelvis and lower back, which improves blood flow to the genitalia. This increases arousal and pleasure during sex and reduces stress and anxiety.
This treatment may be done through manual therapy, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, kegel exercises, or myofascial release.
Exercise therapy: It helps strengthen muscles in the pelvic area. Strengthening these muscles improves blood flow and circulation, increasing sexual function.
Electrical stimulation: Electrical stimulation involves using electrodes in appropriate areas to help relax the muscles or improve muscle stimulation
Biofeedback: to help relax or improve pelvic floor muscle function
Myofascial release involves mobilizing soft tissue to relieve chronic tension and discomfort.
Kegel exercises: These involve contracting and relaxing the muscles of the pelvic floor. They’re often recommended for pelvic floor muscles.
