As women grow older, their midlife transition can affect their pelvic and sexual health. Holland Hospital is offering new treatments to help women age with grace and confidence.
“Menopause is accompanied by a variety of changes for most women, both mental and physical. These changes may impact brain function and can significantly affect a woman’s sexual health and overall quality of life,” said Barb DePree, MD, Holland Hospital Women’s Specialty Care. “First and foremost, it's important to try to be honest and open with your partner about any sexual discomfort or concerns you may be experiencing.”
Talking to your health care provider about sensitive gynecological and sexual health issues isn’t easy, but it’s important. Not only are these issues common, they’re also treatable.
“Because we specialize in menopause care, as well as gynecological and sexual health, we can also help women better understand these concerns, as well as offer them access to a variety of effective treatment approaches,” she added.
New vaginal treatment technology options are now available at Women’s Specialty Care:
If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness or pain, bladder leakage or other pelvic floor issues, MonaLisa Touch could make a life-changing difference for you. The procedure helps address these concerns with carefully controlled laser pulses that gently deliver energy to tissue and stimulate your body’s own natural healing response.
This radio frequency device delivers precise heating for smaller, hard-to-reach areas to temporarily increase local blood circulation and decrease pain and muscle spasms.
Treatments are non-surgical, non-hormonal and chemical free. Each procedure typically takes minutes and with no interruption to daily activities. MonaLisa Touch and TempSure Vitalia procedures are self-pay and currently not covered by insurance.
