Libido Q & A

What is libido?

Libido refers to your sex drive. Everyone’s libido is different, so there’s no “normal.” However, a low libido can be a problem or a sign of an underlying health condition.

Low libido affects both men and women. If your lack of interest in sex is affecting your intimate relationship, or you simply have concerns that your libido may not be normal, Holly at HAR Wellness can conduct a comprehensive examination to determine if you have something to be concerned about, and if so, provide the most effective treatment.

What causes a low libido?

You may be experiencing a low libido for many reasons. Some of the common causes of a low libido for both men and women include:

  • Decrease in sex hormone levels
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease
  • Fatigue
  • Lifestyle habits
  • Relationship problems

You may also have a low libido if you’ve experienced sexual trauma.

What treatments can improve my libido?

Holly offers many treatments to help improve your libido. Some of the most common include:

Hormone replacement therapy

Hormonal changes as you get older may affect your libido. Holly offers hormone replacement therapy using bioidentical hormones to restore levels. Bioidentical hormones are a natural form of hormone replacement and are compounded to meet your specific hormonal needs.

P-Shot®

For men, Holly may recommend the P-Shot to restore libido. The P-Shot contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is a blood product she creates from a sample of your own blood that contains a concentrated amount of platelets, growth factors, and specialized proteins. For treatment, she injects the PRP into the shaft of your penis and the healing properties restore penile and sexual health.

After the injection, many men report an improvement in penis size, sensation, and orgasm.

O-Shot

The O-Shot, also referred to as the Orgasm-Shot®, is for women and works much like the P-Shot for men. The treatment contains PRP and is injected into the clitoris and upper vagina. After treatment, many women report an improvement in arousal, vaginal sensation, and orgasm.

Holly also offers stem cell therapy as a treatment for libido and may prescribe medication.

A healthy sex life is an important part of your health and wellness plan. For management of your low libido, call HAR Wellness today, or request an appointment online.
