Other types of sexual dysfunctions are also possible. There is also the possibility of a dysfunction that has yet to be classified.

In the text below, “sexual desire” is used as a generic term to describe all of the sensations that result in the libido.

The amount of sexual desire varies from person to person.

Additionally, the amount of sexual desire can change over time. This means that there are two types of changes that can happen: increase and decrease. The amount of sexual desire that fluctuates with time is not as important in this case, as the disturbances are still just as serious.

Sexual desire can be classified as a type of sexual dysfunction. However, it may not always be classified in this way, as the disturbance itself may not be considered serious or even a “disorder” in some peoples eyes. Regardless of the perception, it is still a potential problem that should be addressed if it is causing problems in a relationship.

The disturbances of sexual desire can occur separately or they can occur in combination with one another.

For a number of reasons, some of which can be caused by hormonal changes in a person’s life, sexual desire may increase to an extent that is excessive. This may happen naturally during ones life span. However, it is common to experience a sudden increase in sexual desire. In these cases, the person experiencing the disturbance of sexual desire may feel the need to act on their desires immediately.

In some cases, the increase in sexual desire is a problem. The person experiencing such may find themselves becoming increasingly dissatisfied with their life. This may even lead to “down times” of the person’s emotional and psychological health. In order for a person to remain stable, they must stay in a state of constant sexual fulfillment through masturbation or other means.

A possible treatment for this would be a drug known as clomipramine. It has been found to help decrease sexual desire in some cases, although it may take several weeks before it begins to have an effect.

It is also possible for a person’s sexual desire to decrease to a point that it is no longer normal. The reasons for this may vary, but it is most common in cases of hormonal changes. For example, a common reason for a person’s desire for sexual activity to decrease in this manner is the onset of puberty. Additionally, it has been seen in cases of prolonged hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy.

A possible treatment for this would be to increase the testosterone and/or estrogen levels in the body, which can be accomplished with hormone replacement therapy. In addition, psychological treatment may also be beneficial.

The disturbances of sexual desire can also occur together with one another. In some cases, they can be the primary disturbance. These cases are varied, and there is no specific pattern that can be applied to them.
