Sexologists can help you with a wide range of sexual concerns, including sexual dysfunction, sexual identity, sexual orientation, relationship issues, communication problems, sexual trauma, sexual addiction, and sexual wellness.

Examples include difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection, pain during sex, low libido, or concerns about your sexual orientation.
