This can lead to a psychological imbalance in men. Sexologists are the ones who are specially trained in treating such medical conditions related to sexual activity and sex organs. So, a Sexologist can treat erectile dysfunction by prescribing a few medications or drugs and lifestyle modifications.
Orgasmic disorder is the medical condition that is characterized by inability or difficulty to reach orgasm during sexual stimulation or intercourse or sexual activity. This can happen in both males and females. However, this condition can lead to psychological imbalances and may damage an individual’s relationship.
