Talking about a sexual problem can be helpful, especially if a partner (when there is one) also comes to the appointment.

Advice can be given to make things better. It takes blame off a particular person and helps to open up a way of talking to each other. Practical advice is given and ‘the practice’ is then done by you at home. It is not always available on the NHS.

Psychosexual therapy can be used as well as drug treatments.
