As sex therapists, we're actively involved in helping people develop an understanding of sexual health and foster the growth into their lives. So, what does it look like to be sexually healthy?
Once you’ve identified the presence of premature ejaculation (PE), it’s time to seek treatment. But how do you know which PE treatments are right for you or your partner?

How Are Female Orgasm Problems Assessed In a Clinical Setting?
In order to determine if sexual dysfunction is truly an inability to orgasm, issues with sexual arousal should be explored first. If a woman cannot become sexually aroused, she is not likely to orgasm. In that case, the issue is likely around sexual arousal and not a problem with orgasm.
To assess female sexual arousal, details about sexual repertoire during partnered sex, adequate stimulation being received, and information about the partner’s sexual functioning should be assessed. Some women are not sure if they have had an orgasm.
Women vary with regard to the age in which they first have an orgasm, how consistently they have orgasms and how much value they put on them.
