Doctors have been too swift to diagnose sexual disorders in recent years, researchers claim.Previous research has found that sexual problems are widespread – with nearly four out of ten men suffering from problems during sex, and one in five women.But new research applying stricter ‘internationally recognised’ criteria shows that just 4.2 per cent of men and 3.6 per cent of women should be diagnosed as having sexual problems.In fact far from being unusual, the authors write that occasional ‘mild and transient sexual problems are sufficiently common to be considered normal’, the researchers advise.
