The Sexual Wellness Program in the Scott Department of Urology at Baylor Medicine is dedicated to the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of sexual dysfunction.
- Approximately 52 percent of American men suffer from some degree of sexual dysfunction.
- Female Sexual Dysfunction, or FSD, affects 43 percent (approximately 40 million) of American women.
Physicians in the Sexual Wellness Program believe that sexual dysfunction is a couple's disease and the couple should be treated concurrently. There is much data supporting this belief.
Among men with ED, 43 percent of their female partners will have FSD. Conversely, among women with FSD, 29 percent of their male partners will have ED. Sexual dysfunction is clearly a couple's disease and both partners should be evaluated and treated in order to maximize therapy.
