Erectile & Sexual Dysfunction

Enjoying a fulfilling sex life is part of the human experience.  It keeps us connected to our loved ones and contributes greatly to our sense of overall well-being.  However, proper sexual function depends on hormonal balance, which can be thrown off as we age.  Even less-than-ideal lifestyle choices can have a negative impact on a healthy sex life.

Erectile & Sexual Disfunction | Doctor Warwick, RILow libido and erectile dysfunction in men: symptoms, causes and solutions:
Low libido is a common symptom experienced by men who are going through andropause. As a result of decreasing testosterone levels, men may begin to have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection, or they may even lose interest in sex altogether.  With the use of natural bio identical hormone replacement therapy, we can replace the hormonal equilibrium a man’s body needs for healthy sexual function.

But aging and hormone levels aren’t always the only culprits! Even an unhealthy lifestyle punctuated by poor nutrition, low physical activity, smoking and drinking alcohol can negatively impact a man’s sexual health. Improved nutrition, increased physical activity and smarter lifestyle choices can help increase blood flow, supply energy and contribute to a feeling of overall wellness which will naturally improve libido and erectile quality.

Low libido in women: symptoms, causes and solutions:
Women also experience a decreased interest in sex as well as vaginal dryness, difficulty achieving climax and other barriers to healthy sexual function.  These troubles often come during menopause, perimenopause and post menopause when the levels of progesterone, testosterone and estrogen are on the decline. 

With the use of natural bio identical hormone replacement therapy, we can restore the hormonal balance a woman needs to relieve the symptoms of aging and help her feel “sexy” again.  However, just as it is with men, a woman’s lifestyle choices can also contribute to sexual dysfunction. This makes it important to be mindful of and make improvements to her nutrition and fitness choices as well as her hormonal equilibrium.

When combined, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and improved lifestyle choices can reverse the symptoms of sexual dysfunction in both men and women.
