Women, Sexual Dysfunction and Treatment Options

When we think about sexual dysfunction, poor performance issues and even a decrease in sexual desire, we most commonly focus on men and their treatment choices.

The truth is, women, especially those in the particular stages of life, have a variety of issues that can contribute to sexual concerns such as diminished sexual desire and decrease in arousal. Stress, hormonal changes and certain medical conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis and Diabetes can all lead to physiological conditions that affect sexual performance and enjoyment.

Because of this, many ask if there is a female version of Viagra. Although Viagra has FDA approval for use in men, according to the Mayo Clinic it has no FDA approval for use in women. However, there are several FDA approved drugs, Addyi and Vyleesi (bremelanotide) that offer relief.

Treatments for Low Sex Drive and Decreased Orgasms in Women

Addyi acts to correct an imbalance of your brain chemicals, dopamine and norepinephrine, that are the key drivers of sexual excitement while lowering the levels of serotonin that can interfere with your sex drive. It is prescribed in pill form and is normally taken once a day.

Vylessi (bremelanotide) works differently from Addyi by activating the melanocortin receptors in your body, and it is used to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). With Vylessi you have the flexibilty to administer this tiny injection 45 minutes prior to a sexual encounter when you and your partner are ready.

These are not your only options, though. Cliovana is a non-invasive procedure that goes hand in hand with Addyi and Vylessi. While these drugs increase your libido and sex drive, Cliovana acts to stimulate your ability to have stronger and more satisfying orgasms.

Cliovana does this by using sound waves to stimulate the blood vessels in the nerves of the clitoris, the female organ dedicated to pleasure. There are greater than 8,000 nerve endings in just the tip of the clitoris. That’s twice as many as found in the penis. This innovative procedure, which consists of four treatments, is done in the doctor’s office and only takes ten minutes. You can immediately get back to all your normal activities, without limitations.

 

All About ED and Treatment Options Available for Men

Although many find themselves uncomfortable discussing it, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is much more common than you probably think.

You may also think your only treatment option is in a pill form like the well known drug Viagra or one of its counterparts. Although pharmaceuticals, like Viagra, are popular options in the treatment of ED, they might not necessarily be the right option for you. The results received from these pharmaceuticals are only temporary, and there is also a window of time in which they need to be taken prior to sexual activity. This really diminishes your ability to perform without preparation.

What if we told you there is now a non-invasive, natural, drug-free solution for ED? One that doesn’t come with many of the unwanted side effects common with oral prescription drugs. A safe option that doesn’t require surgery or penile implants.

GAINSWave treats the underlying issues that lead to sexual dysfunction. By restoring better levels of blood flow to the penis and encouraging growth of new blood vessels, you will see positive results in firmness and duration of your erections. The pulsating waves delivered also stimulate the stem cells in the penis leading to the restoration of male erectile tissue. As the GAINSWave site states, GAINSWave is a safe and effective choice for those with underlying health issues such as Diabetes, heart disease, Peyronie’s Disease and high blood pressure who cannot use the commonly prescribed oral medications.
