Painful Sex

Painful Sex

Painful sexual intercourse (dyspareunia) affects more than 20% of women and have a significant impact on your physical and mental health, body image, and your relationships. Hormonal changes from right before menopause or during menopause can cause dryness and loss of sensation, making intercourse less pleasurable or even painful.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

It could be your hormones… Dr. Drake offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which consists of custom-compounded tiny pellets. Pellets are periodically inserted into your body to release a natural plant-based hormone to provide a continuous and consistent hormone level throughout the day. This decreases the negative effects of large hormonal swings that can occur from oral and synthetic hormone replacement therapies. Learn more about BioTE for hormone replacement therapy >>
