About Sexual Dysfunction

It's common to experience changes in your sexual health as you age, especially as estrogen levels drop during menopause. Female sexual dysfunction can include lack of sexual desire, diminished sensation, painful intercourse, vaginal laxity, and trouble achieving orgasms. Not only does sexual dysfunction affect you physically, but it can take a toll on your emotions and well-being, as well as those of your partner. The caring team at Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta understands the sensitive nature of your concerns and wants to help you find a solution. Dr. Gerry Sotomayor is a compassionate listener who helps women improve their health and well-being through effective treatment options.

Treatment Options for Sexual Dysfunction

You'll have a consultation and exam at our office where you can share your symptoms with Dr. Sotomayor. He will take the time to listen and discuss your sexual health concerns in-depth. This helps him to pinpoint the cause of your issue and determine if any underlying illnesses, relationship issues, lifestyle habits, or mental health disorders could be possible factors. Sometimes diagnostic tests are also performed to rule out other medical problems. Depending on the nature of concerns and the cause of your sexual dysfunction, the appropriate treatment options will be provided. There are a number of ways we treat sexual dysfunction, including lifestyle recommendations, counseling referrals, hormone therapies, and nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments (ThermiVa®). Some patients may benefit from a combination of therapies.

Sexual Dysfunction FAQ

How does lifestyle affect female sexual dysfunction, and what recommendations might be given?
Lifestyle factors such as stress, diet, exercise, and sleep can significantly impact female sexual health. At the Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, patients might receive tailored lifestyle recommendations designed to improve overall health and sexual function. This could include advice on maintaining a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, managing stress through techniques like yoga or meditation, and ensuring sufficient sleep, all of which have been shown to improve sexual well-being.

Can you explain how hormone therapies are used in the treatment of female sexual dysfunction?
Hormonal imbalances can significantly affect sexual function. Dr. Gerry Sotomayor may prescribe hormone therapies to correct imbalances such as low estrogen or testosterone levels, which are often linked to decreased libido, vaginal dryness, and discomfort during sex. Treatment plans are carefully tailored to each patient's specific needs, with regular monitoring to adjust hormone levels optimally and manage any side effects.

What is ThermiVa treatment, and how does it help in treating sexual dysfunction?
ThermiVa is a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production in vaginal tissues. This process can improve vaginal laxity, enhance moisture, and increase blood flow, thereby potentially enhancing sexual satisfaction and function. At our practice, ThermiVa is offered as a gentle, effective option for patients looking for non-invasive solutions to their sexual dysfunction issues.

Are there any side effects associated with hormone therapies for treating sexual dysfunction?
Hormone therapies can sometimes have side effects, which may include weight gain, mood swings, acne, and other hormonal imbalances. At our practice, we closely monitor patients undergoing hormone therapy to manage any adverse effects promptly. Adjustments to the treatment regimen are made as necessary to ensure patient comfort and treatment efficacy.

How long does it typically take to see improvements after starting treatments like ThermiVa?
Patients may notice improvements in vaginal tightness and moisture within a few weeks after starting ThermiVa® treatments. However, the full benefits, including changes in sexual satisfaction and function, might take several sessions to become evident. Each treatment session is tailored to the patient's unique condition, with progress carefully monitored by our specialists.
