Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather detailed information about the patient’s sexual history, including the onset and duration of symptoms, any triggering factors or events, and changes in sexual function over time.
  • Assess for underlying medical conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonal imbalances, or neurological disorders.
  • Evaluate the patient’s psychological well-being, including stress, anxiety, depression, or relationship issues.
  • Inquire about medication use, substance abuse, or lifestyle factors that may contribute to sexual dysfunction.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a comprehensive physical examination to assess for any physical abnormalities or signs of underlying medical conditions.

  • Evaluate the patient’s neurological function, including sensation and reflexes, to rule out any underlying neurological disorders.

Laboratory Tests

  • Testosterone levels: Measure total and free testosterone levels to assess for hormonal imbalances.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s response to treatment and adjust management if necessary.
  • Provide education about the condition, including the potential causes, treatment options, and lifestyle modifications that may improve sexual function.
