Hormone Optimization for Sexual Health
As we age, the body’s decreased hormone production can have a profound effect on our well-being. Uncomfortable symptoms may include mood swings, difficulty sleeping, loss of muscle strength, and even a diminished sex drive. Impact Medical Group of St. Petersburg explores how hormone optimization therapy can promote a healthy libido.
When hormones are balanced and at healthy levels, your sexual health is stable. But should an imbalance caused by stress, medications, age, or other factors occur, your sex drive can be drastically affected. These hormonal disruptions can occur in both men and women and have similar symptoms. For men, fluctuations in testosterone, DHEA, and the thyroid can lead to diminished muscle and bone strength, sex drive, and metabolism issues. Two major culprits in women’s hormonal imbalance are perimenopause and menopause. If you are one of the many women experiencing hot flashes, fatigue, and a decreased sex drive, hormone optimization therapy might be helpful for you. For both men and women, hormone optimization therapy has been shown to not only restore hormonal balance but also increase energy, stamina, and sexual potency. Additional benefits of a healthy libido’s impact on other areas of the body include lowered blood pressure and reduced risk of heart disease.
Hormone replacement therapy has been studied for nearly a century. Data has shown that patients report improved symptoms after only a few sessions. At Impact Medical Group of St. Petersburg, we use bio-identical hormone replacement therapy because it is natural and chemically identical in molecular structure to those hormones produced by the body. By restoring balance to the endocrine system, we can alleviate unwanted symptoms and optimize your body’s sexual health.
