The Emotional Impact of Sexual Dysfunction

The Emotional Impact of Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction problems are still not easy things to talk about for many. But just like our physical and mental health are interconnected, so too are our sexual health and emotional state. 

When a man experiences erectile dysfunction or a woman struggles with painful sex due to dryness (caused by thinning vaginal tissue brought on during menopause), a couple’s “sexual mechanics” aren’t the only thing affected. Both men and women can also find that their libido isn’t what it used to be, and this mismatch hurts a relationship. 

Dr. Steven Foley and Dr. Jacob Holdren believe that your sexual health matters and that there’s more to it than STD screenings, contraception choices, and the like. Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center offers innovative treatments with sensitivity and understanding that address many conditions, including  for both men and women experiencing problems in the bedroom.

How does sexual dysfunction affect you emotionally?

There are, unfortunately, many ways that emotional fallout manifests itself as a result of sexual dysfunction. You may feel:

Sexual dysfunction creates all these feelings, which can be difficult and complex to unravel. 

Solutions for sexual dysfunction

It’s critical to realize that if you’re experiencing problems in the bedroom, you’re absolutely NOT alone! In fact, 43% of women and 31% of men state that they live with some type of sexual dysfunction. Knowing this should remove some of the isolation you may be feeling. 

Fortunately, Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center offers an array of advanced treatments for both men and women who experience sexual dysfunction. Here, we summarize what they are and which problems they address:

1. The ED-Shot

This injection is a regenerative treatment that utilizes your body’s own healing powers to give you the ability to achieve and keep firm erections for longer. You receive an injection of your own blood after it has been reconstituted and spun in a device called a centrifuge. The treatment is minimally invasive, and we ensure your comfort. 

This special serum is very restorative to your penis, and you may notice enhanced penis circulation and size in addition to increased sensitivity and pleasure. 

2. The V-Shot

Similar to the ED-Shot, the V-Shot is for women struggling with painful intercourse resulting from dryness, which happens when your estrogen plummets after menopause. 

Like the ED-Shot, the V-Shot rejuvenates your clitoris and vagina thanks to an injection of your own platelet-rich plasma. You feel more responsible, can achieve orgasm again, and get more pleasure from sex. Another benefit of treatment? The V-Shot helps alleviate the symptoms of both major types of female urinary incontinence — urge and stress incontinence!

3. Bioidentical hormone therapy

As we age, our hormones fluctuate, and men can experience ED due to lower testosterone production, while women with a hormone imbalance often report low libido. 

Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) is a revolutionary treatment that uses plant-derived hormones, which your body recognizes as its own. The painless therapy is delivered through a pellet inserted in your buttock or upper hip area, after we apply a numbing agent. This in-office procedure is quick and usually takes under 30 minutes. 

The pellet contains a customized hormone mixture that gradually releases over a period of months. Patients are delighted with how quickly they notice a difference — usually it’s just a few days for women after they receive an estrogen pellet, and men typically experience improvement after a week to ten days. 

We monitor you for several weeks after you receive your pellet, and if you need any tweaking to your dosage, we’re here to provide it. 

With these superior treatments at our disposal, there’s no reason why you should suffer the physical or emotional fallout of sexual dysfunction.
