Women’s Hormone and Sexual Wellness

By Dr. Benjamin Busch, DO, MBA

December 23, 2022

Beyond sex, Women’s Wellness is about quality of life.

Though our culture often presents female hormonal changes as an unpleasant string of hot flashes, the hormonal story behind the scenes is actually so much more elegant, complicated — and important. Without these details, we really neglect not only the sexual lives of women but also their overall sense of physical and mental well-being. In fact, women’s wellness and regular sexual activity help reduce stress, boost the immune system and improve cardiovascular health. Robust sexual health is a powerful ally to building strong and healthy romantic relationships that enhance the overall quality of life.

If this feels out of reach for you right now, you’re not alone. You don’t have to suffer with the sometimes miserable consequences of hormonal changes or disbalance. Without proper treatment, disempowering symptoms — like low libido, zapped energy and depression — creep into and hijack a woman’s day-to-day life. Symptoms of hormonal fluctuations can be due to estrogen, progesterone or testosterone deficiencies and can make healthy sexuality feel foreign or inaccessible. 

Yes, there are many symptoms of hormonal disbalance — but it goes to show just how impactful these hormones are.

Symptoms of estrogen deficiency:
  • Depression
  • Dry skin
  • Forgetfulness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Hot flashes
  • Increased allergies
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Increased PMS symptoms
Symptoms of testosterone deficiency:
  • Anxiety
  • Belly fat
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Loss of focus
  • Low libido
  • Memory loss
  • Mood swings
  • Muscle pain
  • Sugar cravings
  • Weight gain
Symptoms of progesterone deficiency:
  • Breasts that are often sore
  • Depression, anxiety or other mood changes
  • Hot flashes
  • Low blood sugar
  • Low libido
  • Migraines or headache
  • Menstrual cycle absence
  • Spotting between periods
  • Vaginal dryness

Many women also experience weight gain, headaches and irritability. These side effects are unpleasant, and they play a substantial role in affecting your self-esteem, self-confidence and relationships.

What’s more, prolonged hormone imbalance and dysregulation are correlated with increased risk for a host of severe diseases, including cancer, dementia, diabetes, heart disease and more.

We can help. 

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or if you have noticed a tolling effect, we are prepared to help you understand your unique situation and explore ways to recover your zest for life and love.

Women’s Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction affects between 30%-40% of women. Symptoms of female dysfunction include decreased interest in sexual activity and difficulties getting aroused or reaching climax — some women may even experience discomfort during sexual activity. 

Today there are several treatment options available that can help you rediscover your sensual side, reinvigorate yourself and your sex life. Don’t wait another day to feel like yourself again — reach out to our team to discover your options for improving your sexual wellness!

Vixen Shot

The Vixen Shot, or V-shot, leverages platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate the vagina and clitoris, enhancing pleasure and performance. This innovative treatment uses your body’s own PRP to stimulate new cell growth, naturally increasing lubrication, sensitivity, and arousal. Additionally, the Vixen Shot offers a promising solution for women experiencing urinary incontinence. By promoting tissue regeneration and enhancing muscular control in the pelvic region, PRP injections can help improve bladder control and reduce the symptoms of urinary incontinence.

The procedure is streamlined and completed in a single visit. Our trained medical professionals perform a simple blood draw, which is relatively painless. The blood is then processed to concentrate the PRP, which is subsequently reintroduced into your body. Areas targeted during the procedure, particularly the sensitive regions of the vagina and clitoris, are numbed with a fast-acting cream to ensure comfort.

After the Vixen Shot, most women experience heightened arousal and pleasure in as little as 7 days. Within 3 months, most women report having:

  • Decreased pain during vaginal intercourse (for those who had reported it previously)
  • Enhanced lubrication
  • Greater sensitivity and stimulation of the clitoris 
  • Increased ability to have vaginal orgasms
  • Increased sexual appetite
  • More frequent and intense orgasms

The additional benefit of improved urinary control makes the Vixen Shot a comprehensive treatment for sexual health and pelvic wellness.

Boost your bond with oxytocin peptide therapy

Commonly referred to as “the Love Drug,” oxytocin is a peptide that is naturally produced in the body and increases when a person is “in love” or very happy. It’s higher when individuals feel positive emotions, laugh and spend quality time with loved ones. Oxytocin levels in women also increase when they are pregnant and after childbirth, leading to a strong attachment to the baby.

This amazing peptide is associated with emotions of love, connection, pleasure and contentment, making it easier for you to be close to your partner. Oxytocin supplementation has been found to lead to more intense, longer-lasting and satisfying orgasms in women.

Oxytocin can be taken as a simple-to-use intranasal spray either on a daily basis to promote emotional health or on an as-needed basis to boost intimacy.

Reinvigorate your interest with PT-141 peptide therapy

PT-141 is an incredible peptide with the ability to increase sexual arousal in women.  This remarkable treatment uses a specific peptide sequence to stimulate the dopamine and sexual desire centers in the brain, resulting in spontaneous desire and heightened arousal during vaginal intercourse. 

While the effects of PT-141 typically start working within a few minutes, it can take up to a few hours for some women. The effects of a single dose can last up to three days. 

Furthermore, many couples enjoy combining PT-141 with other therapies to enhance their pleasure.

Revolutionizing Pelvic Health: The Frankenhauser Technique

The Frankenhauser Technique, also called a paracervical or parauterine treatment, is a series of prolozone injections targeting the abdomen and pelvis to treat pelvic floor dysfunction. The administration of nutrients and ozone around the affected areas works to relieve pain, promote tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation and stimulate a healing response within the pelvic organs and floor.  Ideal for a wide array of conditions such as:

  • Painful menstruation
  • Endometriosis
  • Post-surgical complications
  • Chronic bladder issues
  • Pelvic floor weakness

This technique directly addresses the underlying causes of discomfort. To augment the healing process, a triple peptide blend is often applied, promoting soft tissue repair and improved blood circulation. This holistic approach ensures effective relief and recovery for those suffering from complex pelvic floor issues.

Want to sustain your desire? Try apomorphine.

Apomorphine works by triggering dopamine release in the brain which increases feelings of pleasure and arousal in women. Originally prescribed for erectile dysfunction, it also effectively stimulates sexual desire in women, helping those who struggle with low libido or arousal issues during sex. It may also be beneficial for women with vaginismus or dyspareunia (painful intercourse).

Pleasure in a bottle? Try Scream Cream.

For most women who are experiencing sexual dysfunction, the root cause of their lack of libido stems from a lack of blood flow to the vagina, vaginal dryness or involuntary tightening of the vagina. 

All these things can make intercourse unpleasant and, in some cases, even painful. It’s no wonder many women experience a decreased sex drive as they age! Unfortunately, this can put a strain on their romantic relationships as well as their own physical and mental well-being. 

Our Scream Cream is a prescription treatment that can help eliminate these issues so that you can get back to focusing on having an intimate relationship with your partner. It works by enhancing blood supply to your erogenous zones. 

When applied at least 30 minutes before you have intercourse, most women report enhanced stimulation and sensitivity on the clitoris and in the vagina, which increases the chances of achieving orgasm, boosts their libido and creates an overall better sexual experience.
