Sexual disorders (male)

Sexual disorders (male) - F52 (Clinical term: Sexual dysfunction, not caused by organic disorder or disease Eu52)

Clinical judgements about sexual dysfunction should take into account the individualís ethnic, cultural, religious, and social background, which may influence sexual desire, expectations, and attitudes about performance. Sexual problems in non-Western patients are often somatized; expectations may be unrealistic and psychological explanations and therapies may not be readily accepted.
