Problems with your sexuality? Let’s talk about it

The prevalence of sexual disorders is increasing in the population.

The Sexual Medicine Office welcomes you alone or as a couple and manages all problems related to sexuality:

  • female sexual dysfunction (low or lack of sexual desire, lack of orgasm, pain during intercourse, vaginismus, etc.)
  • male sexual dysfunction (low or lack of desire, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or ejaculatory disorders, etc.)
  • relationship problems related to sexual disorders
  • problems related to sexual behavior.

The team of the Office offers you a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and personalized approach that is based on innovative techniques and brief sex therapy.

It works to improve sexual health through diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, by using not only the knowledge of medical and social sciences, but also that of psychology and neurobiology.

The Office also works in a cross-disciplinary manner in other HUG divisions, including UrologyOncology, Radiation Oncology, and even Cardiology.
