Women’s Sexual Health

Women’s Gynecological Health Care available across the lifespan from Menarche through Menopause

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: Approximately 10% of women suffer with this problem. Furthermore,  this treatment leads to better sex, more energy, creativity, increased confidence, less depression, and overall improved health. It helps reduce the low desire for sexual activity.

Female Orgasmic Disorder: Around 1 in 20 (or 5%) of woman suffer from some type of orgasmic disorder. Women can become aroused, but have much difficulty with orgasms. This can become so frustrating that sex becomes an activity they avoid.

Dyspareunia: Happens when women suffer with real pain with sex (not from decreased lubrication or vaginal spasm). The incidence is from around 1 in 10 to 1 in 5 women.  (The above shocking statistics came from Obstetrics & Gynecology April 2011)

Genital Mismatch: A genital mismatch is when the male partner is significantly larger than the female. This issue can contribute to both Female Orgasmic Disorder & to Dyspareunia

Peri-menopausal and post-menopausal vaginal changes: Common symptoms include vaginal dryness, thinning of the tissues and discomfort with sexual intercourse. This can become so profound as to cause lack of desire, anxiety, depression and marital dysfunction.

Statistics

The number of women who suffer from sexual issues effects 50% of the population. Remember, these numbers only include women who are psychologically distressed enough to discuss it with their Woman’s HealthCare Provider. If the patient doesn’t disclose these problems, then she is not counted in the above statistics, and continues to suffer in silence. Is it possible that women just learn to tolerate less than optimal sexual activity, and eventually believe the sexual issues to be normal? If you are suffering from any type of sexual problem, talk to your healthcare provider.  You do not have to suffer alone, or in silence anymore. We can help you get your spark back in your life and in the bedroom.

Sexual problems happen to not just woman, but also to men as well. Men on the other hand, immediately seek help when they suffer from sexual dysfunction. Viagra and other ED treatments have caused relationships to suffer. Therefore, women have not been able to “keep up” with their men, causing relationship dysfunction, and even divorce. Women, shouldn’t suffer in silence; especially when there are so many new non-surgical treatments available. These treatments are not a “cure all” , but can certainly help things in the bedroom. Studies show,  these treatments can vastly improve a relationship both inside and outside the bedroom. Whether your intimacy issues stem from the effects of childbirth, surgeries, or post-menopausal changes, we can help.
