The importance of discussing sexual dysfunction with your Katy gynecologist

Sexual Dysfunction in Katy Area

A woman’s sex life is typically not something she discusses with many people. In fact, many women don’t discuss it at all, even when it’s going well. This can make conversations about sexual problems a great challenge, as women don’t know who to talk to, what’s normal or common, or where to turn for support.

However, just because sexual dysfunction can be a hard conversation to have doesn’t make it less important. It does make it more critical to have the conversation with someone you trust and respect. Dr. Taryll Jenkins of Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine is committed to providing expert and compassionate care to every patient. Problems like this, and many others, are handled discreetly and without judgement. Knowing that they can trust Dr. Jenkins and his team, many patients have found answers for the reasons for their sexual dysfunction and treatment plans to alleviate it.

It’s important to recognize that sexual dysfunction is common. In fact, it’s estimated that it affects up to 40 percent of women in the United States. While little research has been conducted, there are medical reasons such as heart disease and diabetes, as well as hormones, and physical and psychological factors that contribute to sexual dysfunction.

When there’s a problem in the bedroom, many patients aren’t sure if they have a physical problem or an emotional one. The truth is that sexual dysfunction can manifest differently in every woman. For some it’s a lack of sexual desire or the inability to climax. Others report vaginal dryness or pain during sexual intercourse. Once you’ve identified the symptoms, you can talk to your physician about your concerns.

Sometimes, a simple conversation about the symptoms, your medical history, and your current medications can be all it takes to diagnose the issue. For example, many medications will alter the amount of estrogen and progesterone in your body. Both of these hormones are factors in your pelvic comfort, arousal, and satisfaction. In other cases, you may need more treatment in the way of medication, lifestyle changes, or physical therapy to improve the condition.

Regardless, the first step is to talk with your physician. Call Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine today
