Sexual health is an important dimension of human health. In conventional medicine, sexual health is often limited to contraception and prevention of sexually transmitted infections. These are important issues that we help with as well, but in our practice sexual health means so much more. Libido, intimacy, comfort, satisfaction, sexual safety and sexual pleasure - we believe that we can be healthy sexual beings at any stage in life and can help you address a wide variety of issues related to your sexual health.
Through both conventional and integrative approaches, we can help address issues such as low libido/desire, vaginal dryness, painful sex, vaginismus, vestibulodynia and vulvodynia, and issues wtih orgasms.
The management of sexual health is highly individualized and depends on the issue at hand. For example, therapies for vaginal dryness may be straighforward and include vaginal hormone therapy or vaginal laser therapy, while low desire is more complicated - it requires a proper evaluation and then a solution that is best suited for you, whether that is relationship or sex therapy, testosterone supplementation, or management of side effects of medications known to cause low desire. We also collaborate with physical therapists, psychologists, and sex therapy centers to complement treatment.
