This first step is often very difficult; many people don't like to discuss these complaints. Feelings of shame may play a role. A general practitioner (GP) is familiar with sexual problems and will not be surprised if you tell him. Try to explain clearly what the symptoms are and how often they occur. The GP will refer you, if necessary, to a gynaecologist, urologist or sexologist. Gynaecologists and urologists are doctors who are specialized in the investigation and treatment of anomalies of the reproductive organs. Sexologist are psychologists who are specialized in the treatment of sexual problems.
