Taking Care of You: Your Feminine Health Treatment Options

Women experience several common health concerns, and many are confused about suitable treatments for these conditions. Some feminine health concerns include pain, urinary incontinence, and irritation, or discomfort during sex. These may be caused by hormonal changes, the natural aging process, childbirth, cancer, or other reasons. Fortunately, women now have several treatment options available to them. Here are a few options available from Wisconsin Vein Center & Medispa.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments can be used to stimulate new collagen and elastin production in the vaginal walls, which can alleviate discomfort, dryness, urinary incontinence, or laxity. Wisconsin Vein Center & Medispa offers a fractional CO2 laser procedure called Femilift, which administers laser energy intravaginally. The procedure takes just 10 minutes in the office. Femilift treatment is typically completed with three treatments administered about a month apart. Often, patients choose to have Femilift treatment in addition to other therapies, like physical therapy or hormones, to enhance their results.

Hormone Therapy

Many feminine health problems are caused by hormonal imbalances. While some may attempt to resolve this issue using at-home remedies or following advice they find online, the most effective way to balance hormones is to have a thorough and careful evaluation from a professional. As an OB/GYN, Dr. Joi Davis has a comprehensive understanding of hormonal imbalances and creates customized treatment plans to help each patient find relief from their symptoms. She offers bioidentical hormones, meaning that the hormones you receive are identical to those naturally produced by the body, and treatment is designed to make up for decreased levels of natural hormones. Hormone treatments are available through a variety of forms, including pills, patches, creams, and injections.

PRP

Also known as the “Joy Shot,” PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is useful for feminine health in addition to its many medical applications. PRP is developed by drawing the patients’ own blood and preparing it in a centrifuge to increase platelets within the plasma. It can then be injected into the clitoral and anterior vaginal tissue. This allows for increased blood flow and new tissue formation. Nearly all women, not just those experiencing negative symptoms, may be good candidates for the Joy Shot.

At-Home Devices

Depending on your health concern, at-home treatments available through a healthcare provider may be an option. The vFit Plus is an at-home device that can improve women’s sexual health. The device works through a combination of LED lights, gentle heat, and sonic technology. These work together through short sessions to improve wellness and address symptoms that are commonly a result of aging, pregnancy, or menopause.
