Hormonal issues are the root cause for 70 percent of people with sexual dysfunction. The main hormones involved include cortisol, estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, and thyroid hormones—even oxytocin and kisspeptin.  

In this webinar, we will cover the normal sexual response for men and women, describe the types of male and female sexual dysfunction, identify the hormonal signatures of the most common types of sexual dysfunction, and review the evidence-based nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic treatments currently available.
