Why Sexual Wellness Matters

Why Sexual Wellness Matters

What do the words “sexual wellness” mean to you? You might imagine having a clear understanding of the mechanics of sex or the importance of awareness around sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). There’s more to it, though.

Sexual wellness and its relation to your health also involves understanding how you were raised to think about sex, sexual orientation and identity, how you feel about your body, and pleasure. 

Having a satisfying relationship with your partner involves emotional safety as well as physical connection. Factors like your overall health and your life stage affect sexual wellness. When obstacles prevent you from enjoying sex, they can stem from a physical issue or they may have to do with a lack of desire or an inability to have an orgasm.

Dr. Russell BartelsDr. Burt Webb, and the entire VitalityMDs team are dedicated to offering a wide range of solutions so you can reach your peak sexual wellness. They create your treatment plan carefully, customize it with sensitivity, and execute it with care.

Sex is complex

No matter your sexual identity, there is a multitude of problems that can emerge to dampen your enjoyment of sex, including:

Whatever the issue that prevents you from having a rich sex life, know that VitalityMDs offers solutions that enable you to engage in and enjoy sex again. 

Solutions for challenges that affect your sexual wellness

Dr. Bartels and Dr. Webb have thought carefully about the treatments to offer patients that will aid in optimizing their sexual satisfaction, and these innovative approaches include:

For women:

  1. A wide range of vaginal rejuvenation procedures restore elasticity and tighten the tissues. Noninvasive options include Viveve, the O-ShotⓇ, and FemiLift. 

We also offer the LOVE procedure, which provides the benefits of vaginal revitalization, hormone therapy, and the O-Shot. Not only does this treatment improve sexual well-being, but it also helps with incontinence issues. 

  1. Cliovana is a game-changing treatment that uses sound wave technology to speed up the cell regeneration process. It addresses responsiveness on the cellular level and treats vaginal dryness — a primary cause of painful sex.
  1. Minimally invasive surgical procedures include vaginoplasty, which tightens tissue and eliminates excess tissue, and labiaplasty, which also removes excess labial tissue, so your labia look better. 

For men:

  1. To address erectile dysfunction, which affects about 30 million men, we start out recommending lifestyle changes, like lowering your alcohol consumption, quitting smoking, and managing your stress. We also offer medications that can help.
  1. Minimally invasive treatments that are quite successful include the P-Shot — a regenerative shot that improves blood flow to the penis, and GAINSWave, a shockwave therapy treatment. 

GAINSWave not only improves blood flow, but it also stimulates the birth of new blood vessels. It also helps men dealing with Peyronie’s disease scar tissue and accompanying problems with sex.

For both men and women, we also offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that can be given orally, topically, or in other ways of delivery. Though synthetic, these hormones are naturally derived and identical to those you produce. 

When your hormones are in equilibrium, your sex drive returns. Women no longer have pain during intercourse, and men’s erectile dysfunction disappears. 

Why sexual wellness is a significant part of overall health

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that a rich intimate life is associated with better mental health and more robust overall health. Adopting a sex-positive attitude and being open about getting treatment for sexual health issues are essential to your well-being.
