“Sexual dysfunction” is a term used to describe a number of different problems. In males, issues such as erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation may occur. Female sexual dysfunction may involve vaginal spasms, painful intercourse, or a significant drop in libido. As much as sexual dysfunction has been associated with growing older, the conditions that fit into this term may affect women of all ages. If you live in the Katy area, you are not alone in managing sexual health. Contact the Katy office of Dr. Taryll Jenkins for the care you need.
