Sexual health refers to your physical, mental, and social well-being as it relates to your sexuality. Broadly, this branch of medicine includes family planning and the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of STDs.
Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness provides sexual health services to men and women experiencing problems as a result of the natural aging process. Hormonal fluctuations caused by menopause and andropause can negatively affect your libido and lead to other, more serious sex-related issues.
At Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness, the team regularly diagnosis and treats several sexual health problems, including:
Vaginal dryness affects women of all ages, but it’s particularly common in menopausal women. Usually, it’s the result of a decrease in estrogen, a hormone responsible for keeping the vaginal tissues lubricated and elastic. Left untreated, vaginal dryness can make sexual intercourse uncomfortable or painful. Fortunately, it’s possible to treat.
Painful intercourse, also known as dyspareunia, causes persistent genital pain before, during, or after sex. This can occur for a variety of reasons, including poor lubrication, injury or trauma, irritation, or a medical condition like vaginismus. Chronic conditions like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and irritable bowel syndrome can also trigger this condition.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) makes it difficult to get or maintain an erection long enough to have sex. Though the condition affects men of all ages, it’s especially common in men experiencing andropause or low testosterone. There are several treatments that can minimize symptoms and restore your sex life.
Treatment of sexual health problems depends on the severity of your symptoms and the underlying cause, but the team at Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness always recommends holistic, integrative methods of care.
In some cases, healthy lifestyle changes like losing weight, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and managing stress are enough to ease symptoms and improve sexual health. However, if you have unbalanced hormone levels, you might benefit from treatment with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an integrative treatment that uses all-natural hormones derived from plants to restore hormonal balance to your body. Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness conducts BHRT using pellets.
