What is sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction encompasses a range of issues, including lack of arousal, pain during intercourse, lack of satisfaction, or difficulty achieving orgasm. It can result from various factors such as hormonal imbalances, pelvic floor dysfunction, vaginal dryness, or psychological factors. Studies show that approximately 40% of women experience sexual dysfunction, with around 12% reporting significant distress as a result.

How do we address sexual dysfunction?

At Center for Advanced Gyn & Urogynecology, we take a comprehensive approach to sexual dysfunction treatment. During your consultation, our team will collect a full medical and sexual history to understand your unique concerns and goals. We may perform hormone level testing and pelvic ultrasounds to assess for hormonal imbalances or structural abnormalities. Additionally, we will assess for pelvic organ prolapse and vaginal dryness, which can contribute to sexual dysfunction.

What are the treatment options?

Treatment options for sexual dysfunction vary depending on symptoms and underlying causes. Our multimodal approach often includes a combination of therapies tailored to your individual needs and goals:

  • Systemic or vaginal hormonal replacement therapy after menopause
  • Medications to treat low libido in pre-menopausal patients
  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation, vaginal dilators, and exercises to address pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Trigger point injections or topical numbing agents for pain relief
  • Mental health counseling or couples therapy to address psychological factors
  • Vaginal laser therapy for tissue rejuvenation
  • Emsella device therapy to improve pelvic floor muscle function and sexual function
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy: A regenerative treatment that utilizes growth factors from your own blood to improve sexual function and arousal
