If you groaned when you saw this question, we understand. Especially if you are a woman who is making her way into or through menopause.
If you are suffering from low libido, you are not alone. And there are things you can do about it. The first thing we need to do is to get to the root cause. In menopausal women, it usually has something to do with hormones.
When you think of menopause, you probably think of dropping estrogen levels. But did you know testosterone levels also decrease for women?
“No big deal! I’m a woman. What do I need testosterone for?”
The answer may surprise you! Testosterone aids in the growth and maintenance of your reproductive tissues. And, it also impacts bone mass and human behavior.
Most importantly, Testosterone has a significant impact on your sex life. You may be familiar with the fact that testosterone level decreases in the male body can lower a man’s libido (sex drive). However, this is also true for women.
But, the impact on women is two-fold:
- Not only does low testosterone cause low libido
- But, it can impact a woman’s ability to have an orgasm
You may already know that as a woman approaches menopause, her estrogen levels decline. But did you know that estrogen helps keeps the vagina well-lubricated?
When estrogen levels take a dive, so does the production of your natural lubricants. This is why so many menopausal women complain of dry vagina and painful intercourse.
No wonder you don’t feel like having sex!
- Your libido is low
- Intercourse is painful
- Orgasms are few and far between
We Have Solutions!
Yes, there are over-the-counter lubricants that can temporarily relieve vaginal dryness. But these lubricants don’t address the root problem, which is hormone imbalance.
If you want a long-term solution, you need to replace the estrogen and testosterone missing from your system. And, the best way to do that is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
BHRT delivers a customized amount of bio-identical hormones via a rice-sized pellet placed under the skin. Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are derived from plant-based compounds that identically match human hormones.
They “look” exactly like naturally occurring hormones, which means that the receptors in your body accept them more effectively.
The hormone pellet aspect of the procedure is simple and effective too. During the in-office procedure, we insert the tiny pellets in the fatty tissue right beneath the skin.
Your body prompts the pellets to release hormones when it needs them. Your body releases hormones based on physical exertion or mental stress. You don’t have to deal with the daily nuisance of:
