Hormones play a pivotal role in your health and sexual functions throughout your life. Female hormones, like Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone naturally fluctuate over the years. As the body ages, these levels drop and can cause unexpected changes to your sexual health.
Symptoms of Female Sexual Dysfunction
Women with hormonal imbalance, especially those going through menopause, may experience distracting symptoms of low hormones and sexual dysfunction such as:
Dermaplaning is especially beneficial for people who have:
- Low libido (sex drive)
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain
- Low energy
- Pain during sex
- Mood changes
- Poor sleep
- Difficulty reaching an orgasm
You don’t have to live with these troubling symptoms. There are treatments and solutions to help you feel better and restore your sexual function.
Treatments for Female Sexual Dysfunction
You have a number of options to improve your health and wellbeing when hormone levels are low. One of the most popular and effective treatments is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone replacement therapy is a strategic treatment that can help manage a number of health issues. Replenishing hormone levels is vital in restoring energy and vigor, as well as optimizing the aging process.
Symptoms of low hormones and sexual dysfunction can be reversed with bioidentical hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormones have been heavily studied and are safer than synthetic hormones.
The correct dose can get rid of unwanted symptoms while also improving your health and wellbeing. By working closely with your prescribing physician and by taking the right dosage for you, the side effects of hormone replacement therapy can be minimal.
You can also reverse some symptoms of sexual dysfunction with other methods. You can adopt lifestyle changes that support good overall health and wellbeing, including:
- Regular, physical exercise
- Limiting stress
- Avoiding spicy foods
- Not smoking
- A healthy, nutritious diet
- Maintaining regular sleeping habits
These changes can help bioidentical hormone replacement therapy work better to balance your hormones and boost your energy levels.
Finally, if you are having trouble sleeping at night due to night sweats or other problems, you need to create a great environment for sleep. You should keep your bedroom cool, dark, quiet and free of screens. Your bedroom should be for sleep and sex only. Use cotton or linen sheets and wear light cotton clothing to help keep you cool. A great night of sleep can do wonders for your mood and energy.
