FAQ

Hypersexuality, also known as compulsive sexual behavior, is considered a mental health disorder when it becomes problematic and interferes significantly with a person's daily life and well-being. While some argue that it should be recognized as a disorder, it is not officially classified as such in widely accepted diagnostic manuals like the DSM-5. 

Individuals with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease, and those taking medications like antidepressants, antihypertensives, or certain contraceptives, are more likely to experience sexual dysfunction. Psychological factors, including stress, anxiety, and relationship issues, can also contribute to the development of sexual difficulties.

Sexual abuse can have diverse effects on individuals, and some survivors may develop hypersexuality as a coping mechanism or response to trauma, while others may experience sexual aversion or dysfunction.
