Sexual Health Q & A
What is sexual health?
Sexual health is essential for your overall physical and emotional well-being. Physical desire is a strong motivator for intimate moments. However, women also use sex to feel closer to their partner or show them how much they care.
Having an enjoyable and healthy sex life supports your emotional and physical needs and benefits your relationship with your partner.
When physical or mental conditions affect your sexual health, it may lead to additional health problems and place undue stress and strain on your relationship.
Dr. Barrere understands the importance of sexual health in women and offers innovative treatments to help restore libido.
What affects a woman’s sexual health?
There are many factors that may affect your sexual health. Childbirth and hormonal changes from menopause may affect your vaginal tissue, causing tissue laxity or dryness that leads to pain during intercourse.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) may also affect sexual enjoyment. Dr. Barrere tests for STDs when you come in with concerns about sexual health so he can provide the right care.
Your psychological well-being also affects your sexual health. Stress, anxiety, depression, or problems with your relationship may lower your libido and your desire for intimacy.
What are the treatments for sexual health?
Dr. Barrere takes a patient-centered approach to sexual health. Treatment for your sexual health may depend on the underlying cause.
Some of the treatment options may include:
- Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
- Treatment for STDs
- Lubrication products
- Treatment with Votiva FormaV
- Sex therapy
Dr. Barrere works closely with you to design a treatment plan that best meets your needs.
What can I expect during treatment with Votiva FormaV?
FormaV is a noninvasive treatment for women that remodels vaginal tissue. During treatment, Dr. Barrere inserts the Votiva FormaV handpiece into your vagina, which emits controlled energy that gently heats the tissue, increasing blood flow to the tissue and stimulating collagen production.
Votiva FormaV is FDA-approved for the treatment of urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and vaginal dryness.
Votiva FormaV is a painless in-office procedure that takes only a few minutes and requires no downtime afterward.
