Sexual Dysfunction Q & A

What is sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction has a wide definition, so many women don’t know that their condition falls under its umbrella or that their troubles are entirely treatable. You may be suffering from sexual dysfunction if you:

  • Don’t respond to sexual stimulation
  • Feel pain during sexual intercourse
  • Can’t orgasm
  • Have a decreased libido

Any of these can be cured with the right treatment, and the team at Brown, Pearson, & Guepet can help you find the best treatment for you.

What’s causing my sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction can stem from any number of physical, mental, or hormonal conditions or medications. These include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Low estrogen levels
  • Other hormone imbalances
  • Cancer
  • Kidney failure
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Antidepressants
  • Antihistamines
  • Blood pressure medications
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • History of sexual abuse

If you suffer from sexual dysfunction, your doctor at Brown, Pearson, & Guepet will interview you about your medical history and symptoms to determine the most likely cause of your dysfunction. The cause or causes will help to determine the best course of treatment for you.

What are my treatment options?

Brown, Pearson, and Guepet Gynecology offers several solutions to sexual dysfunction. Your provider can help to decide which is best for your specific case and develop a treatment plan.

Hormone pellet therapy

Hormone pellet therapy involves pellets full of hormones that are bio-identical to those produced by your body. This therapy works best to increase your libido if your dysfunction is a result of a hormone imbalance. The hormones are made from organic plant materials and are placed under your skin near your hip.

ThermiVa

Also used to treat urinary incontinence, ThermiVa is a treatment involving radiofrequency that is administered, non-invasively, into your tissues. It works to increase your libido by stimulating the nerves in your clitoral area and increasing their sensitivity. The results are immediate, and there’s no recovery period.

O-Shot®

The O-Shot®, or Orgasm Shot, involves an in-office procedure during which the platelet-rich plasma is isolated from your blood. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected via a needle into your clitoris and upper vaginal area in order to increase the area’s sensitivity. The O-Shot® can also be used for vaginal rejuvenation to treat urinary incontinence.
