Being intimate with your partner is normal and healthy, but sometimes pregnancy, age, and hormonal changes can make it difficult.  Low sex drive, pain during intercourse, vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence are symptoms that can prevent a woman from enjoying intercourse. The good news is, Louisiana Women’s Healthcare offers a team of experts who are dedicated to addressing your sexual health concerns in an inclusive and supportive environment. 

Understanding intimate wellness

As we age, estrogen levels decline, potentially leading to vaginal changes and discomfort that can cause a woman to become disinterested in sex or intercourse to feel painful. It’s not uncommon for women to experience these changes during perimenopause, menopause and even after childbirth. Loss of intimate sensation, vaginal dryness, laxity, and hormone imbalances, are concerns that make women back away from the intimate activities they used to enjoy.

At Louisiana Women’s Healthcare, our intimate wellness program helps women understand the wide range of issues that may be contributing to decreased sexual drive and or satisfaction. We offer a wide range of therapies that address the unique symptoms that may be holding you back from enjoying a healthy sex life.
