What is Sexual Health?
Sexual health can be an important part of your emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. Having a healthy and fulfilling sexual life is integral for many patients, but conditions that affect your sexual health can take a toll on both your body and mind, as well as that of your partner’s. It can often feel embarrassing or uncomfortable to look for help with your sexual health, especially when it seems like your only options are medications or surgery. Stem cells can be an effective option for restoring sexual health through regeneration of important tissues and functions that make up your body’s sexual mechanisms.
What Causes Sexual Health Conditions?
Conditions that affect your sexual health can happen for many different reasons, but many therapies can have a positive effect on your overall health, not just your sexual health. We begin with a full understanding of your symptoms, anatomy, and goals for your sexual health so that we can create the right therapeutic plan that fits your healthy lifestyle and achieves your emotional and physical well-being.
What are Common Sexual Health Conditions?
It’s estimated that erectile dysfunction affects as many as 30 million men. It’s defined as the inability to achieve an erection that is either not firm enough or not sustained long enough for sexual intercourse. Although most men have difficulties with erections from time to time, erectile dysfunction is a long-term condition that is often caused by medical or psychological issues. Although stress or nervousness can be a contributing factor, it can also be the result of limited blood flow or nerve damage. Erectile dysfunction can be a serious indicator for dangerous cardiovascular conditions, so early intervention and screening is highly important.
Orgasmic disorder, or anorgasmia, is the inability to achieve orgasm during sex, and it can affect anyone. It can occur in varying degrees and even change over the course of your lifetime. For example, some patients have never experienced orgasm, while some can only achieve orgasm in extremely specific circumstances. There are many different factors that can cause or affect orgasmic disorder, including certain medications, illnesses, gynecological conditions, and aging. There can also be many different psychological causes. Often, a decrease in sensitivity around erectile tissue can cause a lack of stimulation.
Vaginal Aging or Dysfunction
Due to aging or other factors, patients can experience dysfunction known as “vaginal atrophy.” This occurs when the vaginal walls become thin, dry, or inflamed due to decreased estrogen levels. Symptoms related to vaginal aging or dysfunction are most commonly treated with PRP stem cell therapy. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, can be injected into the vaginal area to reduce symptoms of vaginal aging, including dryness, itching, urgency or frequent urination, light bleeding with intercourse, or discomfort.
Over the course of aging, many women experience changes that can make sexual intercourse uncomfortable or unenjoyable. These changes can be the result of menopause and a deficiency in estrogen that leads to symptoms like dryness, inflammation, and thinning of the vaginal walls. This can make intercourse painful and also lead to difficulties with urinating or pelvic support. It can also lead to greater chances of vaginal or urinary infections.
