When do I need to get help for my sexual problem?

ANSWER

Not all sexual problems require medical attention. Many people have temporary sexual problems that can be caused by medical problems or stress and anxiety in another area of their life.

Any new sexual problem that persists for more than a few weeks is worth a visit to your health care provider. He or she can rule out medical or medication-related causes and offer advice on solving other types of problems. Your health care provider can refer to other specialists, such as a psychotherapist, marriage counselor or sex therapist.
