While it might not be something that women discuss often, sexual dysfunction is more common than women might realize. Many women experience sexual problems at some point. In fact, anywhere from 30 to 50 percent of women will experience sexual problems during their lifetime. If this problem persists or causes you anxiety and upset, then it might be time to turn to our Brownsville, TX, gynecologist Dr. Gabriel Guajardo for help.
Customized Treatment Plans
Here at our practice, we work hard to provide a safe, comfortable space for women to discuss their sexual health and concerns. Everything from aging and menopause to depression can impact sexual dysfunction. This is a very common issue and one that we see regularly. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Dr. Guajardo and his team are focused on providing effective and custom treatment plans that help restores sexual desire and intimacy and improve relationships and quality of life for women of all ages.
When you come into our practice, we really get to understand the root cause of your sexual dysfunction. We listen to your needs, and we take time to educate you on what’s going on and what treatments we recommend so you can take an active and empowered interest in your own sexual health.
Types of sexual dysfunction that we treat include:
• Lack of desire
• Orgasmic disorder
• Pain with sex
• Sexual arousal disorder
There are so many factors that can impact sexual dysfunction for women, and we will talk to you in-depth, asking you questions about your health, lifestyle, and overall wellbeing to get a better sense of what might be going on. For example, some women may experience a loss of sexual desire during menopause. This is often due to hormonal imbalances. Dr. Guajardo can measure hormone levels and re-balance them through hormone replacement therapy and lifestyle changes to restore sexual desire and drive.
If depression or mental health problems may be to blame, we can also refer our patients to counselors and mental health professionals that can provide them with the therapy and care they need to improve their mental and emotional health, which may also alleviate sexual dysfunction. Certain medications such as antidepressants or laser treatment options may also be recommended to improve vaginal and sexual health in patients of all ages.
