Dr. Mary Kerr hopes that her patients have happy, healthy sexual function. Libido and satisfying sexual function are important for women’s sense of self as well as deepening intimate relationships. In today’s stressful world, many women are not optimizing this facet of their health, sacrificing their satisfaction due to competing life stresses.
Enhancing desire and delivering a rewarding intimate experience are the goals for women who find they are not as satisfied with intimacy as they would like. Treating inflammation, sources or pain, and anatomical changes from infections, pH imbalances, vaginismus, lichen sclerosis, vaginal atrophy, and postpartum changes all contribute to improving pelvic floor health.
Hormonal support in different life chapters including topical hormones, bioidentical and compounded treatments all help achieve and restore sexual function. Pelvic floor physical therapy referrals with exercise and biofeedback can be important elements of care. In-office procedures such as Votiva and FormaV add collagen and elastin production, tighten and tone tissues, and recruit new blood flow to the pelvis.
