What are common women’s sexual health problems?
Female sexual dysfunctions are a complex issue that most women keep private because they feel there is something psychologically wrong with them. This is usually not the case and there is often an underlying physiological reason preventing women from experiencing pleasure and satisfaction from sexual activity. Problems can arise at any phase of the sexual response cycle, from the lack of arousal to the inability to orgasm. Any of these issues can affect how a woman feels about herself as well as her romantic relationships.
The most common women’s sexual health problems include:
- Reduced sexual desire (low libido)
- Inability to become aroused
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during intercourse
- Lack of orgasm (anorgasmia)
What causes women’s sexual health problems?
Female sexual dysfunctions can stem from many different causes, including physical, emotional, and social factors. A common physical cause of sexual problems in women is the decrease in hormones that occurs during menopause.
During menopause, your body produces lower levels of estrogen, an important hormone for reproduction. Low estrogen levels may lead to vaginal dryness, which can make intercourse painful and unpleasant. Additionally, emotional changes associated with menopause may contribute to low sexual appetite and the lack of physical arousal.
At specialty clinics like Balanced Medical Solutions, a thorough evaluation with comprehensive blood tests are conducted to help understand the root cause of each patients’ sexual health challenges. A personalized treatment plan is created to address each individual patient’s needs and goals.

If a female sexual dysfunction is preventing you from enjoying intimate moments, the team at Balanced Medical Solutions can help.

Balanced Medical Solutions was one of the Bay Area’s first providers of integrative approaches to sexual health. They take the time to understand your specific needs and then develop a personalized treatment plan. Depending on the unique factors that contribute to your sexual dysfunction, treatment may include:
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
If low hormone levels are the underlying cause of your sexual health problems, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may be the solution. In addition to boosting your libido and vaginal lubrication, BHRT may reduce your risk for medical conditions like osteoporosis and obesity. BHRT is naturally-derived and helps your body produce more of its own estrogen and does not pose the same risks that traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) poses.
PRP Shot (aka O-Shot®)
The PRP Shot (AKA O-Shot®) rejuvenates a woman’s vaginal tissues by triggering the growth of new blood vessels, collagen, and elastin. This helps to strengthen the vaginal lining and recovers lost elasticity and the ability to lubricate naturally, making intercourse much more pleasurable. To make things even better, the PRP Shot or O-Shot® helps women achieve stronger orgasms. When the clitoris receives some of the PRP, it promotes the growth of new nerves, blood vessels, and collagen in this area.
Prescription Medications to increase libido and sexual appetite
There are numerous treatments, some based on natural ingredients, such as oxytocin and Viagra® for women, which can help women reignite their inner flame.
If you’re ready to take control of your sexual health, experience greater sexual satisfaction, and re-ignite your inner flame, call Balanced Medical Solutions, or book an appointment online today.
