Sexual dysfunction is a common concern that detracts from quality of life and is associated with biopsychosocial etiologies that often are addressed in primary care. Thus, providers in integrated primary care must become comfortable with discussing patients' sexual health concerns and obtaining a thorough sexual health history to determine contributing factors to sexual dysfunction and appropriate interventions. In the integrated care setting, interventions typically begin with psychoeducation and brief counseling related to sexual functioning, healthy lifestyle, and addressing psychosocial stressors. Additional interventions may include cognitive behavioral therapy, couples therapy, and pharmacologic options.
