for your well-being
Sexual well-being plays out on many levels: physical, emotional, mental, and social. In general, it’s an important part of your overall health.
What does sex mean to you?
The WHO defines it as follows: Sexual health is inextricably linked to overall health, well-being and quality of life. It is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality, not just the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity.
But at some point, we have so much going on in our lives that due to stress, pregnancies, births, illnesses, children, and the like, we no longer prioritize it. Let’s change that together!
What does sexual discomfort mean?
We therapists understand by it disorders of sexual functions or reactions, which do not fulfill individual demands on sexuality and lead to suffering.
More precisely: pain and penetration disorders, orgasm, arousal and libido disorders. Incontinence can also be a cause or consequence of sexual dysfunctions.
What affects your sexuality?
Psychological: depression, even short-term or postnatal, anxiety or self-esteem problems.
Situational: stress in everyday life, in the partnership, financial tensions, fear of penetration problems after birth
Physical: pelvic floor disorders,
Perceptual disorders, incontinence, vaginal dryness or inflammation, endometriosis, back and hip pain.
Fitter pelvic floor for beautiful bedtime stories
After good sex, our self-confidence is boosted and we feel relaxed – thank you, dear oxytocin.
However, we rather avoid certain situations when the uncomfortable feeling arises that the pelvic floor is not fit.
Pain during sex?
Affected women keep it a secret and talk only about the problem with their best friend at most. Yet it should no longer be a taboo.
In this case, we speak of sexual dysfunctions, which, however, can be treated accordingly.
