Sexual Health Q&A

What is sexual health?


Sexual health describes the whole of your sex life. Dr. Eden focuses on the psychological, medical, and physical problems that prevent you from having optimal sexual health. 


Although sexual health can sometimes be uncomfortable to talk about, it’s important to address. Sexual health may be an essential part to your overall well-being. There can be any number of reasons that you’re not experiencing the pleasure and health benefits that come from a healthy sex life. 

Why do women experience sexual health problems?


Both men and women experience sexual health problems. Women commonly experience vaginal pain, low libido, and diminished arousal. Naturally low libido isn’t a cause for concern if you feel happy and satisfied. But, if you’re bothered by a loss of interest in sex or are distressed that you can’t easily become aroused, it’s important to get treatment. 

Women may also suffer problems with achieving orgasm. Hormonal problems can also cause women to have vaginal dryness and delicate vaginal tissue, which can lead to physical pain during sex. 

What might be affecting my sexual health?

You may develop sexual health problems due to physical or psychological problems. Hormone levels play an essential role in desire and arousal, so as a woman’s hormones change – such as right after childbirth or during menopause – sexual health problems can arise. 


Hormones also influence the vitality of your vaginal tissue and lubrication. If sex becomes painful, you may avoid it – causing problems in your relationships and sexual satisfaction. 


Aging, chronic pain, poor sleep, and cancer can also affect your sexual health. Certain medications and stress may also interfere with a healthy, robust sex life. 

What sexual health support do you offer?


Dr. Eden offers numerous treatments for sexual health problems. If you need psychological counseling, she can refer you to a trusted provider in the area. 


She can prescribe medications that help with underlying health problems. Undergoing a medication review can identify any drugs that may be causing problems with your sexual health. 

Hormone treatments might also help boost your production of estrogen. This can improve vaginal lubrication and revitalize your libido. 


For women who prefer not to undergo hormone therapy or who can’t because of medical reasons, Dr. Eden may recommend MonaLisa Touch® laser treatments to stimulate collagen production and enhance tissue resilience in the vaginal area. 


Patients who are on hormone therapy may also benefit from MonaLisa Touch sessions.
