Background: The Iranian Traditional Medicine has been originated from more than 2000 years ago. The theory of four temperaments and their relations to human sexual health were introduced in the first time by Iranian Traditional physician. According to Islamic emphasis on sexual health, physicians had observations and extensive experiences for treating sexual disorders especially with herbal therapy. They knew the effects of foods and plants on sexual activities very well. Effects, side effects and treatment methods of herbal therapy in sexual medicine are the aim of this research.

Design and Method: We have studied the therapeutic effects of Iranian Traditional Medicine in sexual disorders and fertility subjects (erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, loss of desire, orgasmic problems, dysparunia, vaginismus, BPH, menstrual disorders, abortion and contraception).  Application forms of herbal medicine in sex therapy are stewing, boiled, crude, inhalation, pickles, suppository, jam, concentrate, salad, medication forms and fruit juice.

Results: In this field, we could find more than 93 specific plants for sexual disorders treatment(such as Salix capraea, Amomum zerumber, Cannabis sativa, Ajuga reptans, Graecum, Zizyphora tenuior, Satureia hortensis for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation or Crocus Stivus, Ptychotis,Nymphaea alba for treating orgasmic problems and loss of desire. Aesculus hippocastanum, Urtica dioica, Helianthus annuus, Agrimonia eupatoria in BPH and Nasturtium officinale, Physalis alkekengi and Anthriscus cerefolium as a contraceptive agent).

Conclusion: Psychotherapy cannot be substituted by herbal medications.  Although some of herbal medications are toxic and they should be prescribed by physician's order, most of them can be placed in the diets to improve sexual health and reducing sexual problems in society.
