did this as well and passed. Why is it neglected 1.It has been a tabboo topic that is awkard for psychiatrists and patients alike to talk about 2.It is a relatively new area in terms of robustness of data and research 3.An inexperinced psychiatrists may not know the right time to ask the patient questions.For example it is awkward to ask a severely depreed pt details of sexual habit.So needs to be asked at follow up. Depression leads to sexual problems which leads to more depression.It is a circle. Sexual problems include orie ntation dysphoria and also problems in females. There is need fior more research Main question :Is it neglected.Yes to a certain extent because of its sensitive nature but the problem does not lie on the psychiatrist alone because detection and management is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary,using a biopsychosocial model such as looking at relaTIONSHIP DIFFICULTIES AND LIASING WITH UROLOGISTS,phYSICIANS,GYNAECOLOGISTS.
