Sexual Health Q & A

Why has my sex drive declined over the years?

If you’ve noticed a decline in your interest in sex over the years, you’re certainly not alone. It wasn’t so long ago that these changes were simply chalked up to an inevitable part of growing older. Today, researchers understand far more about how a woman’s body changes over time. 

If you no longer find sex as satisfying as it once was, that shift may be due to physiological changes. As you produce less estrogen, for example, during menopause, your vaginal walls thin, which can make sex uncomfortable. You might also produce less natural lubrication. 

Reduced circulation in your genital tissues can also decrease sensitivity. Women in menopause may be dealing with mood swings, sleep disruptions, and weight gain, all of which can further complicate intimacy. 

Fortunately, there are treatments at Premier Health & Wellness that can address all these concerns. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a great option for restoring hormonal balance during menopause, but there are many other treatments to explore. 

How does ThermiVa® improve women’s sexual health?

ThermiVa is a vaginal revitalization treatment that can help restore vaginal moisture and increase sensitivity in and around your vagina. Treatments can also help improve certain types of mild or moderate urinary incontinence.

The process uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat vaginal and labial tissues. Your body responds to that heat by producing new collagen, which works to thicken vaginal walls and tighten your vagina, which creates more friction during sex. 

Treatments also cause tissues to contract. This effect can shrink your labia, which is a concern for women who have large or sagging labia that make certain clothing uncomfortable. 

Another benefit of ThermiVa treatments is an increase in vaginal moisture. This can make sex far more enjoyable for both you and your partner. 

These benefits are available through a series of brief and painless ThermiVa sessions. Schedule a consultation to learn more about how ThermiVa can help restore your sex life. 

What is the O-ShotⓇ?

The O-Shot is a powerful sexual health treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, to stimulate new tissue production and boost circulation. PRP is a formula made from a concentrated sample of your blood. 

When injected into your vaginal tissues, PRP can prompt your body to produce new collagen production and speed cell repair. Treatments can even lead to new blood vessel production, which improves circulation and sensation. 

These injections are not painful, and because Premier Health & Wellness creates PRP from your natural tissues, there is no risk of rejection or an adverse reaction.
