It is no secret that we are all sexual beings and that sex is a very important part of our lives. There are also times in our lives when this function is compromised for one reason or another. There is no need to feel embarrassed or ashamed. Dedicated Women’s Health Specialists is ready to help when you find yourself struggling in this area.
Sexual Wellness Q & A
What if I have Low Sex Drive?
Many women experience low or no sex drive sometime in their lives. This could be associated with certain life events or relationship issues. At other times, it is related to physical or hormonal changes in the body. We start with a detailed questionnaire (Female Sexual Function Index) that assesses various domains of sexual functioning such as desire, arousal, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain. There are a number of treatment options available including hormone therapy, non-hormonal drug therapy, devices, and sex therapy.
What about Vaginal Laxity, Decreased Sensation, and Urinary Incontinence?
After pregnancy and childbirth, many women experience vaginal laxity and decrease in sensations which can affect their physical intimacy. Some women also experience urinary incontinence (involuntary loss of urine with coughing, sneezing, and motion). We now offer VIVEVE (formerly called Geneveve) treatment which stimulates the body’s own renewal response to gradually restore healthy collagen and to give soft tissue a youthful tone and resiliency. It can help improve urinary incontinence, improve arousal, increase sensation for both partners, and the intensity of orgasm. No magic – just safe, effective and comfortable gentle heating and surface cooling. It is a comfortable, single-session, 30 to 60 minute treatment. VIVEVE treatment does not require local or topical anesthesia or analgesics and is performed by a trained healthcare professional in the comfort of our office.
