Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder
This disorder is present when an individual has decreased sexual fantasies and an absent desire for sexual activity. This disorder occurs mostly in adulthood, usually following a period of stress.
Sexual Aversion Disorder
This is a disorder in which the individual actively avoids sexual genital contact. People usually report feelings of anxiety, fear, or disgust when the opportunity for intimacy arrives. In some cases, panic attacks may also occur.
This condition is otherwise known as a “sexual headache”. This is when a very severe headache starts suddenly around the point of orgasm. The duration of the pain varies from several minutes to several hours. This pain interferes with the individual’s desire and/or eagerness to engage in sexual activity.
