Sexual Wellness Q & A

What is sexual wellness?

Sexual wellness refers to the health and function of your sexual organs. This includes your libido, or sex drive, and your arousal response during intimate relations. 

When you have robust sexual wellness, you can enjoy a healthy sex life, which has been shown to have many health benefits, including:

  • Enhanced immune response
  • Reduced risk of prostate cancer
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
  • Lower blood pressure

The endorphins and hormones released during sexual activity also help reduce stress, promote an overall sense of well-being, and increase self-esteem. 

How does age affect sexual wellness?

Many women and men experience changes in their sexual function as they grow older. The changing hormone levels responsible for menopause in women and andropause in men have an effect on sexual function and libido. 

Reduced energy and other factors involved in aging can also have an effect on sexual desire and performance.

Declining hormone production can cause vaginal dryness or vaginal atrophy in women that may make intercourse painful, a condition known as dyspareunia. Men may experience erectile dysfunction, and both women and men often find their sex drive diminishes with age. 

What treatments are available to promote sexual wellness?

To help restore your sexual wellness, your skilled expert at BioviveMD performs a comprehensive physical exam and reviews your health history. 

They also order lab work to check your hormone levels and to determine if you have a vitamin deficiency, food allergies, or another condition that may be affecting your sexual wellness. 

Once your provider has all of this information, they design a custom treatment to increase libido, address menopause symptoms, improve the frequency and intensity of orgasms, or increase erectile strength, based on your individual needs. 

Your personalized treatment plan may include:

  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Physician-recommended supplements
  • Physician-supervised detoxification

Your provider may also recommend a weight-loss program, sarcotropin therapy, or growth hormone-releasing peptide therapy to combat age-related loss of lean muscle tissue and other symptoms that can have an effect on energy and libido.

To keep your intimate relationships going strong, schedule a sexual wellness evaluation with a caring, compassionate expert at BioviveMD. Call the clinic nearest you, or make an appointment online today.
