Sexual Dysfunction Treatment for Men and Women
Sexual dysfunction is best treated by addressing the underlying health condition. Physical causes can addressed by medication or mechanical aids. Psychological causes are addressed by therapy and counseling.
If you are suffering from a medical condition, your doctor will help treat the condition. Hormonal imbalance affects both men and women, and is often implicated in sexual disfunction. Thus, hormone therapy may be used to restore your appropriate sexual function.
Men who cannot maintain an erection can utilize penis pumps or vacuum devices. Further, penile implants are suitable for men who have reduced penial sensation.
Women who experience pain or discomfort during sex can have treatments that relax the vaginal muscles.
Psychotherapy and sex therapy are essential in addressing the psychological causes and impacts of erectile dysfunction. Some women may also benefit from these types of therapies. Our counselors and sex therapists will help you improve your sexual health. Communication and behavioral treatments are the main recommendations made by counselors.
