Lack of sex

Lack of sex could be due to stress, exhaustion, or sudden changes in your lifestyle,. However, if your mood swings last for more than a couple of months, this could be a problem. A sex therapist can help you improve communicating with your man so he can know what’s causing the lack of sex drive.

Sex is painful

Sex should give you pleasure. If you feel uncomfortable pain when you’re having sex, chances are you or your man have a health-related problem. A sex therapist can help you find the best positions to lessen the pain.

No orgasm

Maybe you’re used to having extreme orgasms. But suddenly, you find yourself not reaching orgasm at all.  If this problem is persistent for a few months or each time you masturbate, this can be due to an underlying issue that an expert can help sort out.

You don’t know what you want

A lot of people struggle with identifying their sexual desires. You simply may not know what actually feels right to you. Sex therapy can help you embrace your desires and find the things that feel good to your body.

You want to enjoy sex more

Whether it’s due to performance anxiety, or just plain boredom, so many people out there don’t enjoy their sex lives. Even if your sex life feels pretty decent already, there is always room for improvement. While you may not want your sex life to be the main focus of your relationship, having an unsatisfactory sex life is a recipe for disaster.
