How do hormones affect sexual wellness?

Hormones play a key role in regulating sexual wellness. This is especially true for perimenopausal and menopausal women who suffer from symptoms of vaginal atrophy and a diminishing production of estrogen and progesterone. 

Some telltale hormonal influences on sexual wellness are:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Lack of sexual desire
  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal burning or itching 

Talk to your team of knowledgeable caregivers at Andrea Reiche, MD, Inc., so they can tailor a plan to restore your sexual health.

What is vaginal revitalization?

As a woman, you may experience many changes in your vaginal health through the different seasons of your life. Puberty, childbirth, menopause, medical conditions, or infections alter the state of your vagina. 

Vaginal revitalization, also frequently called vaginal rejuvenation, involves the use of laser energy to restore tone, function, and strength to your vagina. At Andrea Reiche, MD, Inc., you have access to MonaLisa Touch® laser treatments to improve your vagina and enhance your sexual wellness. 

What are some common causes of sexual problems in women?

Female sexual problems stem from a variety of problems. In general, most can be categorized as follows:

  • Aging and hormonal changes
  • Certain medications with sexual side effects
  • Specific medical conditions like diabetes or heart disease
  • Emotional concerns like relationship problems, anxiety, and stress

It may be hard for you to talk about your sexual concerns, but the team at Andrea Reiche, MD, Inc. comes alongside you and listens with compassion.
