Hormone Therapy can help you with more than just the physical aspects of your sex life.
It’s common to think of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) as a treatment for the physical symptoms of both male and female sexual dysfunction. For men, that can be erectile issues, for women, problems with decreased sensitivity, or painful intercourse. However, when it comes to human sexuality, it is not only physical.
Overall sexual wellness encompasses not only your physical ability to perform, but emotional issues such as self-esteem, confidence, and mutual attraction between yourself and your partner. There is increasing evidence that HRT can improve all of these aspects of your relationships.
Women facing menopause have long known how the typical hormonal fluctuations of “The Change,” can lead to radical mood swings, irritability and depression.
Low testosterone in men, or andropause can bring on similar emotional changes, all of which can be hard on a marriage or other relationship.
Can Hormone Therapy Improve Your Relationships?
By alleviating both the physical, as well as the emotional difficulties that can come from hormonal imbalances, Hormone Replacement Therapy can improve your intimate relationships, in and outside of the bedroom.
For women in particular, Hormone Therapy remains one of the best ways we have to treat the symptoms of menopause, particularly those involving sexual wellness and female sexual dysfunction (FSD).
The most effective form of HRT uses bioidentical hormones such as estrogen, to bring your hormones back into balance, which allows women dealing with menopause to return to a more even keel, and enjoy healthier, happier relationships. This is known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. BHRT is the safest and most effective form of hormone therapy.
When your sex life suffers due to hormonal issues, it can be very hard on long-term relationships. It becomes very difficult to accept a change in what was once a happy and healthy sex life.
Realizing that it is not your partner’s “fault,” and that there is help available, can be the first step to returning to the better days of your relationship. Partners who show understanding and support, can help to keep “the old sparks burning,” until hormone therapy can return them to a flame!
Even though in recent years we have become much more open about sensitive health issues, many people, women in particular, still feel embarrassed to seek help when things are not quite right with their sex lives.
Hormone Therapy and Sexual Wellness
If you are having trouble in the bedroom, do not be embarrassed, and do not suffer in silence. For women who are experiencing pain upon intercourse, decreased sensitivity, or any other vaginal issue that is impacting sexual wellness, or for men with any erectile issues, HRT may be the answer.
HRT in general is one of our most effective treatments for sexual wellness. However, HRT as practiced by anti-aging physicians today is more about overall “lifestyle enhancement.”
Yes, we can use Hormone Therapy to help men and women regain their performance and confidence in the bedroom. But, we are just as interested in using it as part of an overall wellness program, designed to invigorate every aspect of your life and your relationships.
With that in mind however, it is extremely important that you work with, and seek your hormone treatments only from well-qualified and experienced medical professionals who are up on the latest studies. They should also understand the concepts of bringing all of your hormones back to the right balance for your individual needs and goals.
Once your symptoms and hormone levels are properly evaluated through sophisticated testing and diagnosis, you may benefit from HRT. Or, you may also benefit from new and emerging all-natural treatments for lifestyle enhancement such as Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or a combination of therapies.
Thanks to hormone therapies you can now enjoy all the benefits of a happy and healthy sex life for as long as you and your partner would like!
