Sexual dysfunction in first-episode psychosis

The high prevalence of sexual dysfunction in people with psychosis has often been attributed solely to the side-effects of antipsychotic medication, and less is known about the rates of sexual dysfunction in prodromal and first-episode psychosis. In this podcast, Dr Oliver Howes and Dr Tiago Reis Marques discuss the findings of their recent study into this area, published in the British Journal of Psychiatry.
