Bring the Thrill Back into your Love Life with Regenerative Therapies
Sex is supposed to be fun. So, what happens when it’s not anymore? It happens to a lot of us; around 30% of men and 40% of women report experiencing sexual dysfunction at some time. Men have a little blue pill for treating erectile dysfunction, but what do women have?
…and what if the little blue pill stops working?
Sexual dysfunction is defined as an inability to have normal, satisfying sex, whether it’s at the excitement, plateau, orgasm or resolution phase. Sexual dysfunction can result from physical trauma or imbalances, and/or from psychological problems like PTSD or depression.
The 4 Types of Sexual Dysfunction
- Arousal Disorders: This is a dysfunction during the first phase of the sex cycle; these disorders are characterized by an inability to become excited and/or physically aroused before and during sex. The 5% incidence rate in women doesn’t sound like much, until you think about it – that’s the same as 1 in 20! Erectile dysfunction is the most common type of arousal disorder among sexual dysfunction disorders in both genders. It’s important to note that a person suffering from an arousal disorder may still be interested in sex but not able to
- Desire Disorders: Desire dysfunctions also occur in the first phase of the sex cycle, and are what is referred to as complications arising from low libido. Often, hormone imbalances have a hand in desire disorders. Hormone imbalances can result from anything from a medical condition to a high-stress week at work, so quality of life and self-care play an important role in sexual desire.
- Orgasm Disorders: These disorders are characterized by delay of or absence of orgasm during the third phase of the sex cycle. This type of sexual dysfunction is much more common in women than men, and can be caused by hormonal changes, stress, tiredness, pain during sex, and low libido.
- Pain Disorders: Sexual dysfunction resulting from pain disorders has different causes depending on which sex it affects. In women, endometriosis, vaginal dryness, contractions, UTI’s or menopause. But there’s also Dyspareunia – where the woman suffers with real pain with sex not resulting from any of those causes. The incidence of this is from around 1 in 10 to 1 in 5 women. (The above shocking statistics came from Obstetrics & Gynecology April 2011). In men, sexual pain disorders might be caused by physical damage to the penis, UTI’s, STI’s, and/or skin conditions.\
- Genital Mismatch: If the size of a man’s penis is disproportionately large to their female partner’s cervix, or vice versa, this can contribute to both Female Orgasmic Disorder and to Dyspareunia.
Effective, Non-Invasive, Regenerative Treatments for Sexual Dysfunction
Now there are new treatments for women suffering from sexual dysfunction. Often times, bio-identical hormone therapy can be helpful. We offer hormone treatment that can improve lubrication, decrease how fragile the vaginal membranes are, and also improve sensation and ability to reach orgasm.
There is also new treatment called the O-Shot. This treatment involves a painless injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma into a woman’s G-spot, and another injection near her clitoris, after the area is thoroughly made numb. The injected plasma concentration spurs the body to attract healing resources to the area, rejuvenating vaginal tissue and increasing the tissue’s ability to self-lubricate.
Wait, What About Men?
This same treatment with Platelet-Rich Plasma can be done for men who need treatment for sexual dysfunction called the P-Shot. The PRP injection works to grow new blood vessels and nerve endings, rebuild erectile tissue, and increase sensation during sex.
