Sexual dysfunction is a common and frustrating problem in men that is often under reported and under treated. Sexual dysfunction issues identified by men may include hypoactive sexual desire disorder/lack of libido, premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and/or Peyronie’s disease. This chapter covers information on how normal sexual function occurs and some of the etiologic factors leading to sexual dysfunction. Understanding each individual patient and their goals for sexual health can lead to identifying and addressing sexual issues effectively. Information is provided about some of the traditional medical treatment options typically used to treat men with common sexual problems. In addition, some lifestyle modification and psychological approaches to treating sexual dysfunction are discussed.
