Sexual dysfunction can affect more than intimacy with your partner. It can impact your everyday life, confidence and mental health. The Nebraska Medicine Psychiatric Sexual Health Clinic offers multidisciplinary care for women with issues affecting their mental and sexual health.

Some of the sexual health conditions we treat include:

  • Problems with sexual arousal
  • Decreased sexual desire (low libido)
  • Delayed or absent orgasm
  • Pain during sex

Many factors can contribute to sexual dysfunction, including chronic medical conditions, hormonal changes, psychological conditions, relationship difficulties, work or family stress and medications. Certain psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, can also negatively impact sexual function.

If you’re experiencing sexual dysfunction, our sexual mental health experts are here to help. Our goal is to address your concerns and provide a customized treatment plan to restore your sexual health.

What to expect at your first visit

Your first visit will include a comprehensive interview with one of our sexual mental health specialists. It will last approximately one hour. We will take the time to talk through your symptoms and screen for any other conditions, such as anxiety or mood problems that may be affecting your sexual health. This visit will help us understand your situation and symptoms to develop a treatment plan unique to you.

Treating sexual dysfunction can be complex and often requires a multifaceted approach.

Treatment options could include:

  • Medication
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Hormone therapy

Our sexual mental health specialists will work closely with your primary care or OB-GYN provider to coordinate a treatment plan that considers the physical and mental factors impacting your sexual health.

Our team knows that attending appointments can be challenging during pregnancy and postpartum. For this reason, all our services are available through Telehealth, so you can get the support you need from the comfort of your own home. We accept self-referrals, or your doctor may refer you.
