HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (HRT)
HRT utilizes hormone medications to replace hormones no longer made by the body. HRT may be a standard treatment for many hormone-related conditions among women such as menopause and thyroid dysfunction.
Menopause happens during the last menstrual period, before and after which changes in a woman’s body will occur. This transition usually happens in three parts: perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. Some of the common symptoms during transition include mood swings, 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 with changes in levels of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. HRT may help with these symptoms and prevent bone loss, which can also happen with menopause.
Ask your doctor about the possibility of HRT if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
CHRONIC PELVIC PAIN SYNDROME
Chronic pelvic pain and vulvodynia are two frustrating pelvic disorders mostly seen in young adult women. Both of these conditions fall under the category of "chronic pelvic pain syndromes."2
Vulvodynia is a chronic vulvar pain with no known cause. The pain can manifest in one or multiple areas and can range in intensity and type, from a burning sensation to a constant, sharp pain. If the pain is located in the vestibule and the tissues surrounding the vaginal opening, the condition is called Vestibulodynia, in which pain occurs during or after pressure is applied to the vestibule by sexual intercourse, tampon insertion, a gynecologic examination, prolonged sitting, or wearing fitted pants.3
Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) refers to prolonged (6+ months) pain that occurs below the belly button, which may or may not be associated with menstrual periods. CPP can 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, otherwise known as neuropathic pain. The type of pain varies from mild, which comes and goes, to severe, which can interfere with sleep, work, and life enjoyment. Symptoms include dull to sharp, severe cramping during periods, pain during sex, pain during urination and bowel movements, and pain in certain positions and postures.4
Ask your doctor to find out the best CPP treatment options 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 the 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 can also 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 they 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.
