Sexual Health Q & A

What is sexual health?

Sexual health is a state of emotional, physical, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality. Your sexual health is an important part of life, as it both affects and is affected by other aspects of your overall health.

What causes sexual health issues in women?

Women's sexual health complications are often related to hormonal imbalances, menstrual cycles, body changes after pregnancy or giving birth, aging, sexually transmitted infections, birth control methods, and drug side effects. These factors may lead to urinary incontinence or infection, a low libido, lack of lubrication, or pain during intercourse. 

What causes sexual health issues in men?

Men's sexual health complications may be caused by sexually transmitted infections, age, or injury. These factors can impact arousal and cause problems getting or maintaining an erection.

How are women’s sexual health issues treated?

The team at Regency Medical Spa & Hair Clinic recommends sexual health treatments according to the type of symptoms experienced:

MonaLisa Touch®

The MonaLisa Touch laser procedure may be recommended for the treatment of vaginal tissue atrophy caused by declining estrogen levels after menopause. The laser treatment regenerates vaginal tissue without hormones or medications.

MonaLisa Touch can treat:

  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal discomfort or bleeding

Younger women sometimes use MonaLisa Touch treatments to tighten vaginal tissue after childbirth.

The O-Shot®

The O-Shot is recommended for women with female sexual dysfunction or lack of desire. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used in the O-Shot to generate new blood vessels and nerves. Benefits include increased sexual desire, arousal, lubrication, and more intense orgasms.

How are men’s sexual health issues treated?

The team may recommend the P-Shot® for men with erectile dysfunction or Peyronie’s disease. The PRP in the P-Shot improves these conditions and offers enhanced sexual performance by:

  • Increasing blood flow
  • Producing collagen and new blood vessels
  • Repairing tissue and cells
  • Activating stem cells

PRP therapy injections reduce inflammation and improve function.

Sexual health concerns may be hard to talk about, but the team at Regency Medical Spa & Hair Clinic can address your concerns compassionately and privately so you remain comfortable despite the sensitive topic.
