Sexual health is an important part of everyone's life, whether you are beginning a relationship or have been married for years. We all strive to have healthy and vibrant sex lives, and sometimes need a little help to spice up or just to maintain our sexual health. A healthy sexual relationship can positively affect all aspects of your life, including your physical health and self-esteem.
Always remember that a fulfilling sexual relationship is not one that is dependent on frequency or specific sexual behavior. It all depends on whether the experience makes both of you feel good without compromising either person’s health. Anxiety, stress, fatigue, anger, depression, can all have a negative impact on your leading a normal, sexual life. So try to reduce all the negative energy by channeling it in different ways. Taking up a hobby, exercising, going for a walk, or just lying down for a while with your eyes closed in a cool, quiet room may help to some extent. If you feel like you try too hard to keep the passion in your relationship you may benefit from sex advice and techniques that may open you up to new things you never thought to try. There are simple steps you can take to bring that spark that seems to have faded right back.
Communication plays an important role in nurturing any relationship and sexual intimacy is no exception to this. Conveying your feelings, likes and dislikes is very essential if you are looking for a happy, satisfied, partnership. Taking precautions against unwanted pregnancy and STDs also comes under the definition of sexual health. Using condoms is the most obvious but going in for regular check ups is also a good idea. Also if you notice or feel that something is not normal, do not hesitate about approaching a doctor.
Another reason to seek help is if you have physical or psychological problems that cannot be resolved. Going to a sex therapist may help you pinpoint the issue and find a solution. Your therapist will discuss the problem with you and help you identify if the cause is physical, psychological or a combination of the two. If you're in a relationship, you'll also explore if there are any unresolved tensions or anxieties that are significant.
