Sexual Medicine

One of the biggest questions we get about sexual medicine is “Can I ever really be intimate again?” Your concerns are important to us, so here’s a quick breakdown that illustrates exactly what we do:

Don’t be shy, we’re on your team

Over 43% of women and 31% of men self-report some degree of sexual dysfunction (Cleveland Clinic), though the true number of people suffering from a sexual dysfunction issue is estimated to be much higher.

We understand how such a personal thing can hamper your most intimate relationships. For you, feelings of stress, embarrassment, inadequacy, anxiety, fear, disappointment, or frustration often take center stage. But this is also tough on your partner, who could be internalizing the issue and feeling unattractive or undesirable.

But we’re here for both of you. By confiding in our providers, we can approach the problem together. It is possible to be intimate again!

The big 3

If you’re interested in our program, you’re probably wondering about:

  1. This is common, but why?
  2. Underlying hormone imbalances
  3. Enhancing your relationship one intimate moment at a time
Focus 1: This is common, but why?

Both men and women begin to notice changes in their bodies in their 30’s and 40’s. This is known as andropause/menopause, and happens because our bodies slow or stop production of vital hormones (progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, etc.). These hormones are crucial for good sexual health; without them, men experience erectile dysfunction (ED) and women can experience painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, or even urinary incontinence. Plus, restricted blood flow can inhibit men’s sexual health, and repeated vaginal childbirths can be a big factor for women.

Focus 2: Underlying hormone imbalances

Research has found that low hormone levels directly impact your energy, moods, libido, and ability to enjoy intercourse. For men, this means that 95% of you will not be able to improve your ED until your low Testosterone levels are corrected first. For women, this means your vaginal walls will become thin, dry, or inflamed without healthy estrogen levels (which leads to female sexual dysfunction). This is why we recommend a comprehensive bloodwork panel alongside our other sexual health treatments. By balancing your hormones, we can fix these underlying issues and create a solid foundation for good sexual health.

Focus 3: Enhancing your relationship one intimate moment at a time

We hear it almost every day – “You saved my marriage.” Unlike many other practices, we focus on all aspects of sexual health – energy, mood, desire, erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness, and urinary incontinence – to help you reignite the passion you once had with your significant other. You can be intimate again – and enjoy it!

Frequently Asked Questions

Men begin Andropause (“male menopause”) in their 30’s and 40’s and often struggle with:

  • Becoming fully erect like when they were 18 years old
  • Maintaining an erection
  • Achieving an orgasm

This is most often because of a decrease in testosterone, but can also be due to a lack of blood flow from aging or surgery. We have a revolutionary 3-step approach to revitalizing your intimacy – read more here.

As women age, estrogen levels slowly decline. Women who have experienced menopause, a hysterectomy, or chemotherapy will see a more dramatic drop in their estrogen levels. This lack of estrogen results in thin, dry, or even inflamed vaginal walls leading to vaginal discomfort, itching, and decreased lubrication.

Women who had an episiotomy (a surgical incision in the perineum made to enlarge the vaginal opening prior to delivery) may also experience painful intercourse. This happens if scar tissue forms when the episiotomy heals, or if the episiotomy doesn’t heal properly.

If you are ready to find your confident, sensual self, we recommend these treatment options:

Vaginal laxity is most commonly due to a loss of collagen from aging and childbirth, which stretches the vaginal tissue and can prevent it from returning to its’ pre-childbirth state. This stretching diminishes vaginal health and affects surrounding tissue, such as the perineum (the area between the vagina and anus).

We offer revolutionary treatments for both internal and external tightening of the vagina:

Urinary incontinence occurs in two forms: stress (coughing, sneezing, running) and urgency (a strong urge to urinate just before losing urine). Some women experience both types or only one. Either way, it can be embarrassing, frustrating, and inconvenient.

Two large contributing factors are childbirth and weakening muscles over time. Childbirth stretches the vaginal tissue, and repeated childbirths can prevent the tissue from returning to its’ pre-childbirth state. This results in a loss of vaginal tone. Age can also play a factor because women’s pelvic floor muscles naturally weaken over time. These muscles are unable to contract as strongly as they used to, contributing to urine loss.

We believe in empowering you to live the life you want – without the worry or hassle of incontinence. We recommend these treatments:

Our typical patient comes to us between the ages of 30-65 with symptoms that are preventing them from enjoying intercourse or the intimacy that goes along with it. Most patients don’t speak up when they first experience symptoms and instead wait in silence and hope for the best. If this sounds like you, we can help. Not only can our treatments help manage existing symptoms, but by starting hormone therapy when your first symptoms develop, we can help mitigate them before they become big problems in the bedroom.
