Sexual Problems and Solutions for Women

Women’s Sexual Health

Female sexual dysfunction can occur at any age and manifest as many different issues. Some of the most common are a lack of desire, pain during intercourse, decreased sensitivity or satisfaction, vaginal dryness, as well as lax skin and muscles in the labia. These problems can lead to a lack of confidence and a strain in relationships. 

While it’s not uncommon to experience short periods of time where you lack desire or have other concerns, there comes a time when these problems last too long or begin to cause you pain. If you’ve reached this point, it’s time to schedule an appointment with board-certified physician Dr. Ian Levenson. 

Dr. Levenson and his team believe that all women deserve a healthy, happy sex life. If you’re ready to take back your sexuality, schedule a consultation at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village to learn more about treatments like FEMIWave and the O-Shot.

Sexual health troubles for women can present themselves in a variety of ways. Some of the most common female sexual health concerns we treat at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity include the following:

  • Female sexual dysfunction is a broad term that encompasses any problem that impacts your interest or enjoyment in sexual activity. The four most common types of female sexual dysfunction are lack of desire, trouble with arousal, inability to achieve orgasm, and pain during intercourse. Lack of desire is one of the most reported problems women have, which means no interest in any sexual activity, including masturbation. Trouble with arousal indicates a problem with sexual stimulation. When they have difficulty reaching climax, female patients can experience a lack of natural lubrication production, which can make intercourse less pleasurable and even painful. The inability to achieve an orgasm or decreased sensation should be discussed with Dr. Levenson so he can help suggest anorgasmia treatment options. Chronic pain during intercourse, also known as dyspareunia, should also be diagnosed and treated.
  • Lichen sclerosus is a skin condition that presents as little white, shiny areas on the skin, which can grow and become bigger and more prevalent. These patches commonly appear in the anal and genital areas; however, they may develop on any area of the skin, including the neck, shoulders, chest, legs, and face. One of the most common forms of the condition is vulvar lichen sclerosus, when the problem affects the external genital region of a woman. If you’re living with this condition, it’s important to receive lichen sclerosus treatment as soon as you can. Should the condition be allowed to persist without being seen by a lichen sclerosus specialist, it can become significantly worse.

Cutting-Edge Treatment for Female Sexual Dysfunction

O-Shot® for Women

After having children or just as a result of natural aging, the tissues of your vagina can become loose and less sensitive, leading to a decrease in pleasure and an increased risk of certain medical conditions (including those listed above). If you have decreased desire, vaginal dryness, lax skin, or incontinence, you may find relief with the O-Shot. 

Also known as the Orgasm Shot, the O-Shot is a nonsurgical treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood to stimulate growth and sensitivity in your upper vagina and clitoris. Board-certified physician Dr. Ian Levenson has trained with Dr. Charles Runels, the inventor of the O-Shot, and he is a certified provider of this and Dr. Runels' other PRP treatments. 

Additionally, Dr. Levenson provides FEMIWave, a newer procedure that uses pulse waves to improve blood circulation and repair blood vessels in the vaginal area. This noninvasive treatment created by Dr. Richard Gains (who also invented GAINSWave therapy for erectile dysfunction can tighten the labia while also increasing sensitivity and natural lubrication. FEMIWave is designed to treat the root cause of female sexual dysfunction so it can give you long-lasting results. FEMIWave can help if you are experiencing sexual dysfunction after having a child, or due to hormonal changes during perimenopause or menopause.

If you are interested in enhancing your sexual health or treating a medical condition, schedule an appointment with Dr. Levenson at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the O-Shot hurt?

During your O-Shot procedure, the area of injection will be numbed using a topical anaesthetic. Most patients report feeling no pain whatsoever.

What should I expect after the O-Shot?

After your consultation, you will be asked to relax and recline in a private treatment room while a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm. A topical anesthetic or numbing cream may be applied at the injection site for your comfort. Then, we will create the PRP serum through a separation process with a centrifuge to isolate the growth factors needed. Depending on your concerns and goals, Dr. Levenson may combine another nonsurgical vaginal treatment, like FEMIWave therapy for female sexual dysfunction.

What’s the difference between the O Shot vs. G-Shot?

The G-Shot was designed to target the area inside the vagina known as the G-Spot, rather than just the clitoris and upper vagina as the O-Shot does. The O-Shot is best for women who are struggling with lubrication and stimulation.
