Ladies can also lose interest in sex. Loss of libido is more common in women than men and the culprit is usually depression, especially the post-natal type after having a baby. The sex act can also become painful for the female because of stitches following childbirth or other gynaecological conditions and these are a strong 'turn-off'. Cure the problem and sex life improves dramatically.

Some men blame impotence on their operation if they have had the large prostate gland, which affects the passage of urine, removed. This is known as trans urethral resection of the prostate or TURP for short. The old-fashioned operation carried a risk but if you have the modern operation today, there is no chance of the nerves involved in the sex act being damaged.

Fortunately, most patients respond to treatment these days. Drugs can be injected into the patient or special mechanical aids can bring about and sustain an erection. However, hormones are, useless in the treatment of impotence as they do not attack the cause of the problem. Surgery is sometimes successful where there is arterial disease.

How you treat your partner is very important. Physical humiliation, failure to satisfy a partner in the past or attempted rape can adversely affect sexual performance and interest in sex. Much patience and understanding must be used to support someone who has had a traumatic sexual past.
