There comes a time when you cannot satisfy your partner or have too much arousal or desire. Sexuality is an important aspect of our lives, and it can have a significant impact on our overall well-being. For many, sex is the most exciting part of a relationship and gives them great pleasure and satisfaction. At the same time, some may struggle to find answers to their problems. Many go through failed relationships and cannot enjoy the act itself. Human relationships are very complex, and sex is an indispensable part of them. Even though every one of us goes through some sexual challenges in life, we don't take it so seriously to have a consultation with a sexologist. Especially in India, where the topic and knowledge of sex are kept low people keep suffering silently. In such situations, seeking help from a professional can be extremely beneficial. Sexual health is as important as our physical and mental health.  

Ayurvedic sexology is a branch of Ayurveda that deals with sexual health and related issues. A holistic approach to addressing sexual health problems by considering a person's physical, mental, and emotional aspects. Ayurvedic sexology aims to provide a natural and non-invasive solution to sexual problems that society often considers taboo.   

In this blog, we will discuss eight signs indicating the need to meet or have an online consultation with an Ayurvedic sexologist and the benefits of seeking their help. 

Sign 1 – Low Libido  

Low libido, or a decreased desire for sex, is a common sexual health issue that can affect both men and women. It is often linked to personal and professional stress, hormonal imbalances, medications, or underlying health conditions. In Ayurveda, low libido is seen as an imbalance in the body's doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha). 

Sign 2 – Erectile Dysfunction   

Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection during sexual activity. One of the most common sexual health issues affecting men of all ages and can have a significant impact on their quality of life. If ED is an ongoing issue, it can cause a lack of self-confidence and stress and even lead to relationship issues.

Sign 3 – Painful Intercourse 

Many women have painful intercourse at some point in their lives. Painful intercourse, also known as dyspareunia, is defined as persistent genital pain that occurs just before, during, or after sexual intercourse. It can be caused by various factors such as vaginal dryness, infections, hormonal imbalances, and underlying health conditions.

Sign 4 - Premature Ejaculation  

Over 20-30% of sexually active men suffer from premature ejaculation at some point in their life. Premature ejaculation occurs when the man reaches orgasm and ejaculates before or shortly after penetration during intercourse. This can be a frustrating experience for you and your partner, making sex life less appealing.

Signs 5 – Other Sexual Concerns  

Infertility and low sperm count are other common sexual issues faced by many. According to a survey, 8-10% of couples worldwide are affected by it. When a couple is not able to conceive after one year of regular sexual activity without the use of contraception is called infertility.   

Low sperm count is a common cause of infertility in men. Low sperm count refers to a semen sample with fewer sperm than the normal range.  

Sign 6 – Hormonal Imbalance  

When the levels of hormones in the body are not in their optimal range, it can cause a significant impact on an individual's physical and emotional well-being, including their sexual health. Some common symptoms of hormonal imbalances include low libido, painful intercourse, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, infertility, and mood swings. 

Sign 7 – Stress and Anxiety  

Stress and anxiety can significantly impact sexual health, both physically and mentally. Stress can lead to decreased libido and difficulty with arousal and orgasm. Whereas anxiety can cause performance anxiety, leading to erectile dysfunction and decreased sexual desire in both men and women.  

Sign 8 – Chronic Sexual Issues  

Sometimes chronic sexual issues can be a sign of an underlying health problem. For example, erectile dysfunction can be a symptom of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or neurological disorders. In women, chronic pain during sexual intercourse may indicate vaginal dryness or uterine prolapse. In some cases, sexual problems may also be a side effect of certain medications, such as antidepressants.

Why You Should Choose An Ayurvedic Sexologist

The base of Ayurvedic treatments is all natural- it consists of herbs, plants, fruits, and all vegetation growing around you. Using all-natural elements for treating sexual issues is more promising as they do not cause any side effects, as opposed to using supplements loaded with chemicals that might reduce your body's hormonal balance.  

1. Ayurveda stresses curing the 'doshas.' 

The ayurvedic medicine system is based on balancing the body's three "doshas," which are biological energies that govern our physical and mental characteristics. The three doshas are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, and each is associated with different physical and mental attributes. In Ayurveda, the disease is believed to occur when one or more doshas become imbalanced. Ayurvedic treatment aims to restore the balance of the doshas and improve health and well-being. Removing these doshas while curing sexual health is a major benefit of using Ayurveda, as it helps you attain a better orgasm

2. Use of Ayurvedic herbs  

To address the imbalances of doshas, Ayurvedic practitioners may recommend using specific herbs that can help restore the natural balance and improve sexual health. The medicinal plants used are devoid of any side effects. Some commonly used Ayurvedic herbs for sexual issues include Ashwagandha, Shatavari, Gokshura, and Yashtimadhu. These herbs are believed to have rejuvenating, energizing, and aphrodisiac properties that can improve sexual desire, performance, and overall health.  

3. Focuses on overall well-being  

Ayurveda strongly emphasizes promoting overall health and well-being, rather than just treating specific symptoms or conditions. It believes good health is achieved by maintaining a balance between the body, mind, and spirit. The use of Ayurvedic herbs is just one aspect of this approach. It is often combined with lifestyle changes, such as dietary modifications, stress management techniques, and exercise, to achieve optimal health and well-being. By focusing on overall well-being, Ayurveda can help prevent the onset of health problems, improve quality of life, and promote balance and harmony in all aspects of life.
