Sexual Medicine - Women Q&A

What is sexual medicine for women?

With age, women’s natural hormone levels gradually decline. The ovaries slowly produce less and less estrogen and testosterone in the years leading up to menopause. 

These hormonal changes can have a damaging effect on your sexual health. You may experience some of these common signs of hormone loss or others:

  • Low sex drive
  • Problems with arousal
  • Difficulty achieving orgasm
  • Vaginal dryness

There’s no need to suffer from sexual health problems when Optimal Health Miami specializes in sexual medicine for women. Dr. Gittelman and the team help women regain their lost vitality through innovative and highly personalized treatment programs. 

When should I seek sexual medicine services?

It’s helpful to consider a series of questions when deciding whether to seek sexual medicine services at Optimal Health Miami. These questions may include: Am I experiencing vaginal dryness during sex? Is it difficult to feel aroused? Am I struggling to achieve an orgasm during sex? Are my orgasms less powerful than before? 

You’ll also want to consider whether you and your partner are experiencing a mismatch in sexual desire. If you said “yes” to one or more of these questions, and you’re unhappy with the current state of your sexual health, the team at Optimal Health Miami can get to the bottom of the problem — so you get the care you deserve.

What are the steps to diagnose sexual health problems?

You can expect Dr. Gittelman to conduct a thorough evaluation. He recommends tests to look for signs of a hormone imbalance and nutritional deficiencies and analyze your body for the presence of minerals and toxic heavy metals. Deficiencies of minerals or an overabundance of toxic heavy metals are unhealthy and may slow down your progress in achieving optimal sexual vitality and health.

After the team at Optimal Health Miami pinpoints the issue or issues, they recommend one or more treatments to help restore your sexual vigor. 

What are my treatment options for sexual medicine?

Expect Optimal Health Miami to customize your treatment with targeted therapies for your specific sexual health issues. For example, with a hormonal imbalance, they may recommend bioidentical hormones to help restore your energy and vitality. 

Other treatment methods include:

  • VIAGRA® (orally or vaginally)
  • Addyi® (female Viagra)
  • Testosterone therapy for women
  • Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
  • Oxytocin
  • Topical vaginal medications and/or hormones
  • Heavy metal detoxification
  • Vitamin and mineral supplements

You also may wish to take advantage of educational sessions with an expert sexual health counselor at Optimal Health Miami. The overall goal of your treatment is to address underlying issues so you can enjoy improved arousal, both physically and mentally, as well as better, stronger orgasms.
