“Sexual health is inseparably linked to overall health, well-being, and quality of life. It is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality and not just the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity.” (WHO)
Sexual health is not only defined by the ability to have “good sex”. Sexual health is an integral part of our life. Feeling good in our body, being able to do the sports we want and enjoying sex has a wider impact on our physical and mental health.
This is partly due to the release of the “happiness hormones” such as Oxytocin and Dopamine.
However, most of us get busy with our lives and often do not consider sexual health to be a priority or don’t know its importance. Women accept discomfort, start avoiding physical or sexual activity or simply don’t know where to get help. This situation can lead to isolation, anxiety and even be the cause of depression.
