Why is sexual health important?
Sexual health affects many aspects of our lives, from our relationships and family planning to our mental, physical, and emotional health, while it can be affected by some of those aspects, as well. Studies have shown that healthy sexuality can provide numerous benefits, such as a stronger immune system, improved mental health, better sleep, lowered blood pressure, increased heart health, and more! Having good sexual health implies that an individual is well informed, responsible, and respectful to both their own body and that of their sexual partners while also finding joy, safety, and comfort in their sexuality and sex life.
How can I achieve sexual health?
Our physicians and sexual health specialists at Assure Wellness Group can provide you with excellent resources and information on achieving sexual health for yourself and your relationships. Depending on your specific special health needs, we are also proud to provide numerous sexual health services to help you overcome any obstacles on the road to sexual health. Some of these services include the following:
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT): in addition to aging, there can be numerous causes for low or imbalanced hormone levels, leading to various symptoms affecting sexual health. HRT works to supplement those hormone levels using bioidentical hormones derived from plant sources so that your sexual desire, function, and performance can be improved.
P-shots: also known as P-injections, P-shots are a safe, pain-free treatment that works to help individuals dealing with erectile dysfunction by stimulating tissue growth and increasing circulation within the penis so that patients can achieve stronger, firmer, and more frequent erections. They can also treat Peyronie’s disease, correct any damage from diabetes, and increase penis size, sensation, and pleasure.
O-shots: also known as O-injections, O-shots are a safe and effective treatment for individuals who have difficulty achieving orgasm, are dealing with stress incontinence, vaginal dryness, and low sex drive. This treatment can help such symptoms by enabling stronger and more frequent orgasms and increasing sexual desire, clitoral stimulation, and vaginal lubrication.
Wave therapy: wave therapy is a great option for treating erectile dysfunction caused by poor blood flow. It works by sending high-frequency and low-intensity sound waves to the penis to improve blood flow and circulation. In the process, wave therapy also helps repair aging blood vessels and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels to improve penis function and sensation.
