Causes of Sexual Dysfunction

Certain times of women's lives can also cause physical changes or disruptions in sexual desire or arousal including after childbirth or menopause, or during stressful times throughout life.

Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal Dryness is a common symptom of menopause due to changes in hormone levels. The drop in estrogen levels in women going through menopause can lead to vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. While you can make changes in your sex life to help with vaginal dryness, medications or other treatments may be necessary.

Atrophic Vaginitis

When the vaginal walls have thinned and are dry, it can cause your vagina to become irritated and inflamed. This can cause sexual intercourse to be a painful experience, and may cause women to avoid sex. A vaginal infection can sometimes be the cause of inflammation. Be sure to see your OBGYN if you think you have an infection. 

llnesses or Medications

Certain gynecological conditions can cause pain during intercourse, including endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine fibroids, or vaginismus. Medications can also cause side effects that can result in sexual dysfunction for women.

Treatment for Insufficient Vaginal Lubrication

Vaginal dryness is very common during menopause due to the decrease of estrogen levels. Talk with your doctor about FemiLift, which can help women who experience vaginal dryness. Insufficient lubrication can also be cause by a lack of foreplay, low estrogen levels after childbirth or during breast-feeding, and due to certain medications.
