When it comes to men’s health, we typically discuss conditions like heart disease and prostate cancer, but there is one issue that gets put on the back burner and chalked up to a “normal” issue more often than not. Sexual dysfunction in relationship causes men and women a great deal of anxiety, stress and depression, low self-esteem, and sexual self-doubt.
The issue that Dr. Parveen Vahora sees with many men and women is that the aging process takes a toll on their bodies, which can lead to less than stellar pleasurable moments with their significant other. In relationships, sexual intimacy is a common issue that many couples suffer with, and they often do so silently, without much dialogue or solution, which can exacerbate other problems and cause a great deal of tension on the relationship. Sexual disorders can happen to both men and women. For women, it’s often due to vaginal and vulvar atrophy (VVA), and for men, of course, it’s often associated with erectile dysfunction (ED). However, both conditions affect their partner’s psychological wellbeing, just as much as it does with the one with the disorder.
There are three important questions that men & women should ask themselves:
1. Are you getting an ideal amount of sex?
2. Is it fulfilling?
3. Is your partner’s (or yours if female) discomfort causing you less pleasure?
4. Do you want more pleasurable experiences more often?
As a woman, are you suffering from painful intercourse? If you are, your partner probably suffers too. Who doesn’t want to feel better about their sexual health and confidence? But for countless women, they suffer from VVA, which causes significant pain and discomfort.
What is VVA?
Due to the limited estrogen supply, the walls of the vagina start to thin out, causing dryness, burning, and inflammation. This can make intercourse very painful and can cause urinary disorders and can even interfere with daily activities for many women due to the extreme pain and discomfort that it can cause.
Many women try to hide their condition from there partner, or just suffer in silence because they believe it’s “normal” for them, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Numerous postmenopausal women, pre-meno-pausal and after giving childbirth, have vaginal disorders, pain, and issues that they often times withhold and keep to themselves. They think that it’s just a normal part of the hormonal process, but there are many options to relieve vaginal and vulvar atrophy. VVA disrupts your sex life!
