Sexual Health Q&A

What is sexual health?

Good sexual health means being able to enjoy a fulfilling sex life without the impediment of any physical or psychological issues.

Sexual health plays a vital role in most people's well-being. Issues that affect your ability to enjoy sex might cause physical pain or mental anguish, and very often both. If you're unsatisfied with your sexual health and don't know what's wrong, Dr. Oloufa at West Orange Women’s Care can help.

What sexual health problems do women experience?

There are a number of sexual health problems women might experience, including:

Pain

Painful intercourse (dyspareunia) might occur because you're not fully aroused. Or you might be unable to produce enough natural lubrication, which can occur with menopause. You could also develop vaginismus, where the muscles in your vagina clamp down and prevent penetration.

Low libido

Libido – how interested you are in sex – can vary at different times of your life and even from month to month. Many things influence libido, and fluctuations in desire are normal, but if you're experiencing a general reduction of interest in sex, there could be an underlying problem.

The frequency with which you have sex or how interested you are is entirely personal – there's no right or wrong level. What matters is how you see it, so if you feel your libido is too low (or too high in some cases), sexual health treatment could be helpful.

Orgasmic problems

If you're finding it difficult to reach orgasm or your orgasms are less satisfying, it can have a severe impact on your sexual health.

How are sexual health problems treated?

Dr. Oloufa aims to address your sexual concerns in a holistic way, looking at all the aspects of your life that could be affecting your sexual health. To help with treating your sexual health problems, you complete a special sexual health questionnaire before Dr. Oloufa performs an interview, physical exam, assessment, and work-up for sexual health.

Some of the treatments that might help with sexual health problems include:

The O-Shot

The O-Shot uses growth factors and stem cells from your blood and bone marrow to promote the growth of healthy vaginal tissue. The injection also increases sexual response and helps prevent urinary incontinence.

MonaLisa Touch® and FemiLift®

Laser technologies deliver vaginal revitalization and vulvar resurfacing. They promote healthy new tissue growth in your vagina, relieving symptoms like vaginal atrophy for patients who can't or would prefer not to use hormone therapy.

Vaginal laser resurfacing is also an effective treatment for the genital skin disorder lichen sclerosus.

Other sexual health treatments include:

  • Pelvic floor therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Age and condition appropriate lubricants and medications
  • Counseling
  • Pellet hormone replacement

If you're experiencing low libido, Dr. Oloufa uses careful interview techniques to help you uncover any medical or psychological reasons for problems with your sex drive. She then addresses each case accordingly.
