Sexual Health for Women

Sexuality is one of the most enjoyable parts of our lives and an integral part of most intimate relationships. As we age, hormonal changes and imbalances can take a toll on our health and our sex lives, which is why it’s so important to take charge of our own health and wellbeing.

Aging does not have to mean simply accepting a decline or loss of libido. There are many metabolic reasons that we gradually lose desire, the ability to enjoy sex and experience vaginal dryness. Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers, and they play an essential role in every metabolic process, especially in women’s sexual health.

Menopause is the gradual a cessation of reproductive ability as certain hormone levels decline and the ovaries shut down. Often, women will experience lower libido or the loss of sex drive altogether. These symptoms and others may be relieved through bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
