Some things change, but they don’t have to….
Women are living more vigorous lives to older ages. Many couples would like to continue a natural and normal sexual life together. A relationship with satisfying sexual function may have general health benefits other than just being pleasurable.
Many women experience changes related to menopause, perimenopause, hysterectomy, breast cancer, endometriosis treatments, breastfeeding, and postpartum. Though it is“normal” to experience these changes, these changes can be reversed. Changes can include post/peri-menopausal vaginal atrophy, dryness, burning and pain with intercourse, and mild urinary leakage or urgency. Some postmenopausal women have worsening of these problems even if they use an estrogen.
All exogenous estrogen and testosterone (taken as a medicine, not made by your body) can increase risks of a blood clot, stroke, and cardiovascular events like a heart attack. Estrogen and progesterone do raise the risk of breast cancer as well.
Bio-identical estrogen and progesterone are available in numerous FDA-approved formulations. Compounded bio-identical hormones are often sold as being “safer” but there is not any data that supports a safer estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone.
MonaLisa Touch is a treatment that harnesses your body’s own natural ability to heal and restore itself. Improved vaginal health can restore a sense of youth and vitality.
