Psychiatric Disorders and Sex

Sexual desire, or libido as it is called, has an important place in humans’ life. It is not just related to sexuality, but to many aspects of life, as sexuality and sexual desire are interrelated with behavior, emotions, and social issues. Although sexual desire is predominantly regulated by hormones it is also affected by environmental, physical and emotional processes. Particularly in people with psychological problems we see alongside of emotional and behavioral changes also a deterioration of sexual desire and sex life.
