About Sexual Dysfunction
Female sexual dysfunction can occur at any age and manifest as many different issues. Some of the most common are a lack of desire, pain during intercourse, decreased sensitivity or satisfaction, vaginal dryness, as well as lax skin and muscles in the labia. These problems can lead to a lack of confidence and a strain in relationships. It is not uncommon to experience short periods of time where you lack desire or have other concerns, but when problems last too long or you are in pain, you should schedule an appointment with board-certified physician Dr. Ian Levenson. However, we believe that all women deserve a healthy, happy sex life so schedule a consultation at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village to take back your sexuality with treatments like FemiWave.
Since female sexual dysfunction includes many problems and issues, there is no one cause. One of the most common contributors to female sexual dysfunction is age. Just before (perimenopause), during, and after menopause, women tend to experience vaginal dryness, decreased sex drive, and sensitivity due to fluctuations in hormone levels. After pregnancy and childbirth, many women have problems with vaginal laxity and the appearance of the labia. Female sexual dysfunction can also be linked to anxiety, stress, depression, and other health conditions. During your consultation, Dr. Levenson will ask about your medical history and other factors that may be contributing to your problem. This will help him diagnosis your condition and choose the best treatment.
Female sexual dysfunction is a broad term that encompasses any problem that impacts your interest or enjoyment in sexual activity. The four most common types of female sexual dysfunction are lack of desire, trouble with arousal, inability to achieve orgasm, and pain during intercourse. Lack of desire is one of the most reported problems women have, which means no interest in any sexual activity, including masturbation. Trouble with arousal indicates a problem with sexual stimulation. This leads to a lack of natural lubrication production, which can make intercourse less pleasurable and even painful. The inability to achieve an orgasm or decreased sensation should be discussed with Dr. Levenson so he can help suggest treatment options. Chronic pain during intercourse, also known as dyspareunia, should also be diagnosed and treated.
After your diagnosis, Dr. Levenson will be able to discuss which treatment options are best for your specific problem and goals. At The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity, Dr. Levenson offers two advanced nonsurgical treatments for female sexual dysfunction: FemiWave and the vampire wing lift.
FemiWave is a newer procedure that uses pulse waves to improve blood circulation and repair blood vessels in the vaginal area. This noninvasive treatment created by Dr. Richard Gains (who also invented GAINSWave therapy for erectile dysfunction) can tighten the labia while also increasing sensitivity and natural lubrication. FemiWave is designed to treat the root cause of female sexual dysfunction so it can give you long-lasting results. FemiWave can help if you are experiencing sexual dysfunction after having a child or due to hormonal changes during perimenopause or menopause.
