Women’s Sexual Health Services

The term sexual dysfunction refers to a problem in a person’s sexual response cycle. These problems may relate to desire or the motivation to have sex, reaching a climax, or not feeling emotional resolution after sex. Sexual dysfunction is common in women. Approximately 43% of women report experiencing symptoms of sexual dysfunction.

Treatment of sexual dysfunction has become more effective for women because of the renewed attention in the medical and science industries. Women are also becoming more aware of their bodies and feel more comfortable speaking openly about sex.

What Common Sexual Health Problems Do Women Experience?

Female sexuality is highly complex, and women have unique health requirements. Women who don’t experience a healthy sex life may have problems ranging from psychological factors to sexually transmitted diseases. Cookie-cutter solutions don’t work because each woman is an individual, and her health care solutions must be unique to her.

At Rone Health, our board-certified clinicians prioritize functional medicine administered with care and empathy, explicitly aimed at women and their unique health needs. Our services can be used to treat a range of women’s sexual health disorders, including:
Women with anorgasmia can experience delayed or infrequent orgasms or no climax at all, even though their arousal is high and they receive adequate stimulation. Women with an orgasmic disorder might also have less intense orgasms.
Acquired anorgasmia manifests as new problems attaining orgasms or experiencing a reduction in intensity. This disorder might also be situational and happen only under specific conditions or a general inability to experience a climax. Some women suffer from lifelong anorgasmia and have never experienced an orgasm.
Many factors can contribute to this disorder, including intimacy issues or problems in a relationship. Some women experience anorgasmia because of their medication, physical conditions, or cultural stigma. The use of drugs or alcohol can also cause this condition by impeding blood flow to sexual organs.
Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder
Female Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) is a lack or absence of sexual desire, arousal, or fantasizing. To be diagnosed with this disorder, the lack of desire has to cause some type of distress to the patient. If this condition doesn’t distress the woman or cause discomfort, it isn’t considered a problem.
However, many women are affected deeply by this disorder, which can have a huge impact on a woman’s psychological and emotional health. HSDD is strongly connected to feminine reproductive cycles and the events that happen during that cycle in a woman’s lifetime. These events may include menstrual cycles, lactation, or contraceptives taken over the course of months or years. Postmenopausal women are often affected by this disorder and women who are in the postpartum stages of motherhood.
Vaginal Dryness
Many women experience this problem at some point in their lives. This condition is also commonly associated with menopause because of the decrease in hormone levels in a woman’s life. This condition can occur at any age and can cause discomfort or pain while urinating, sitting, exercising, and during sex.
Breastfeeding and the use of birth control pills have been shown to contribute to vaginal dryness, diabetes, and the removal of the ovaries. Most cases of this disorder are generally attributed to a lack of estrogen.
Dyspareunia is the condition of experiencing pain during or after sexual intercourse. The pain might be external, on the genitals, or internal, in the vagina, uterus, or pelvic area. This pain might be recurring or persistent, and this condition can cause many psychological and emotional effects.
Pain during sex can often lead to intimacy issues and strained relationships, and while women most commonly experience dyspareunia, men also suffer from this condition. Between 10 and 20% of people experience pain during sex at some point.
This condition can sometimes be caused by other disorders or problems, like vaginal dryness. Other instances of dyspareunia have been caused by infections, injury, or psychological issues. Medical problems could also underlie this condition, such as vaginal atrophy, endometriosis, or pelvic inflammatory disease.

How Does Menopause Affect My Sex Life?

Menopause can also contribute to sexual dysfunction. Changes in hormone levels during menopause can lead to vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, low arousal, and additional issues like stress, depression and anxiety, and bladder control problems.

Skin irritations, hot flashes, sleep disorders, and a lack of interest in sex are also quite common.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is a treatment used to increase hormone levels that have been diminished by menopause. Hormones most commonly used in this treatment are estrogens and progestogens. This has been shown to be an effective treatment for women who suffer from vaginal dryness, hot flashes, vaginal atrophy, and other sexual dysfunctions.

Improve Your Sexual Health with Rone Health

Sexual dysfunction in women has long been a subject that seemed taboo in so many circles. Women’s issues were often pushed to the dark recesses of medicine because they were too uncomfortable to talk about. Renewed attention to these issues and better sex education in today’s schools and society means there is a brighter future for women today.

Studies show that neurotransmitters beneficially impact our brains and other organs in our bodies when we enjoy healthy, happy sex lives. The benefits include improved self-esteem and less depression and anxiety. Blood pressure, heart health, and immune system are also enhanced when you have a healthy sex life.
