What is sexual dysfunction?

Loss of libido and diminished sexual sensation impact millions of women. Vaginal muscles tend to expand during childbirth, resulting in weak muscles and a larger vaginal opening and canal. Weak, loose vaginal muscles also can develop as part of the aging process.

Vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, and changes in the outer appearance of the labia and vagina are all additional contributing factors to female sexual dysfunction.

Women may also find their desire diminishes as they approach menopause. This is due to declining hormones that can cause vaginal thinning and irritation.

Men may also experience sexual dysfunction due to aging, stress, certain medications, and lifestyle habits. They may find it hard to obtain or maintain an erection firm enough for intercourse. This may be due to an underlying health condition or to declining testosterone levels.

Why should I see a doctor for sexual dysfunction?

A healthy sex life is an important part of life. It promotes both physical and emotional health. Your sex life can impact your energy levels, your mood, and your relationships. Many people may be uncomfortable discussing issues with sexual function, even though there are often simple, effective solutions to their libido, performance, and sensation issues.

What treatments help a woman overcome sexual dysfunction?

Discuss your specific sexual dysfunction issues with Dr. Bodnar at Viva Health Group. He can offer a number of non-surgical options to boost your vaginal health and function as well as stimulate libido. Treatments include:

  • Bioidentical hormone therapy
  • O-Shot® (platelet-rich plasma therapy)
  • G-spot augmentation
  • PDO threading
  • Hyaluronic acid injections
  • Radiofrequency energy
  • IV therapy

Women may benefit from acoustic wave therapy, too.

How can men address sexual dysfunction?

Men who are experiencing erectile dysfunction and a decrease in libido benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy if low testosterone is to blame. These pellets, inserted just underneath the skin, deliver a consistent supply of testosterone to the body and restore levels of this important male sex hormone.

Dr. Bodnar is also specially trained in providing men acoustic wave therapy that helps restore circulation in the penis. The treatment stimulates the release of growth hormones and breaks down scar tissue in penile blood vessels, too.

What are the benefits of treatments to resolve sexual dysfunction?

Of course, improved libido and performance are the benefits of the many sexual dysfunction treatments at Viva Helath Group. Specifically, the treatments can:

  • Heighten sensation during orgasm
  • Tighten and lift the vagina for women
  • Improve blood flow
  • Correct defects
  • Reverse loss of sensation

Plus, the methods Dr. Bodnar offers involve no incisions, cutting, blood loss, or serious risk of infection.
