Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
HRT is medications containing hormones to replace the ones body no longer makes. HRT may be a standard treatment for many female hormone related conditions such as menopause and thyroid dysfunction. Menopause is the time of the last menstrual period. There are changes in your body before and after menopause. The transition usually has three parts: perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. Some of the common symptoms include mood swing, hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, night sweats, loss of libido and muscle mass, and increasing fat mass especially around the waist area. The symptoms of menopause are associated to changes in levels of both female hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. HRT may help with these bothersome symptoms and also may prevent bone loss which can happen with menopause.1 Ask your doctor about possible HRT if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome
Chronic pelvic pain and vulvodynia are frustrating pelvic disorders seen in young adult women. These two conditions are linked together under the category of "chronic pelvic pain syndromes."2 vulvodynia is a chronic vulvar pain without any known cause. The pain can manifest in one area or multiple areas. The pain intensity and type may be varying from burning sensation to constant sharp pain. If the pain is in vestibule and the tissues surrounding vaginal opening, then the condition is called Vestibulodynia, in which pain occurs during or after pressure is applied to the vestibule with sexual intercourse, tampon insertion, a gynecologic examination, prolong sitting, and wearing fitted pants. 3 Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is defined as pain that occurs below the belly button that lasts for at least six months. It may or may not be associated with menstrual periods. CPP may be a symptom caused by one or more different conditions, but in many cases is a chronic condition due to abnormal function of the nervous system, which also called neuropathic pain. The type of the pain varies from mild which comes and goes to steady severe pain which interferes with sleep, work and life enjoyment. Symptoms include pain that ranges mild to severe, dull to sharp, severe cramping during periods, pain during sex, pain during urination and bowel movement, and pain in certain position and postures.4 There are many treatment options for Chronic pelvic pain syndrome, ask your doctor to find out what`s best for you.
Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD)
FSD is characterized by persistent or recurrent problems with sexual response or desire. Nearly half of all post-pubertal women in the U.S, and a vast majority of peri- and post-menopausal women, experience sexual symptoms that reduce their desire or physical intimacy. This high prevalence is partially due to the hormone fluctuations that women undergo, but there are many other factors that can impact sexual health. A recent survey of American women between ages of 18-59 found that the most common sexual problem in women is low sex drive or low libido, which is called hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). Women also can present with difficulty to orgasm. Different types of FSD include:
- Low sexual desire: diminished libido or lack of sex drive
- Sexual arousal disorder: desire for sex is intact, but have difficulty or are unable to become aroused or maintain arousal during sex
- Orgasmic disorder: persistent or recurrent difficulty in achieving orgasm after sufficient sexual arousal and ongoing stimulation
- Sexual pain disorder: pain associated with sexual stimulation or vaginal contact.
Women with sexual concerns most often benefit from a combined treatment approach that addresses medical as well as relationship and emotional issues. Consult your doctor for treatment options.
