Talking openly about sexual health can be quite difficult for some people, especially women, but the reality is that having open discussions about sexual health can often lead to a more satisfying sexual experience, solidify trust between partners, and ultimately increase intimacy within a relationship.

So why is it such a difficult topic to talk about? As women find themselves in different stages of life, they may not even realize why they have a decrease in libido or why sex has become painful or uncomfortable. Rather than talking about it and finding a solution to the issue, many women withdraw from sex altogether, leaving their partners wondering, “Is it me?”

Sexual satisfaction is a big part of overall relationship satisfaction. Although many people choose not to talk about it, issues in intimacy can lead to greater issues like miscommunication, lack of trust, and disconnect within your relationship. On the other hand, when both partners experience physical pleasure, couples enjoy a deeper emotional connection, a more profound sense of trust, and less stress and anxiety. But what if one partner suddenly does not experience the same levels of satisfaction they once enjoyed?

A decrease in sexual satisfaction for women is more often than not due to hormonal changes throughout their lifetime. After giving birth, women may experience physical changes that can cause pain or discomfort, and hormonal changes can lead to vaginal dryness, making it more difficult to engage in sexual activity. Perimenopause and menopause are two other stages in which hormonal imbalances cause issues in the bedroom. Women who have gone through these stages often report a decrease in libido or painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness and the thinning of the vaginal wall.

Understanding these fluctuations and how important sexual health is, providers nationwide are turning to GAINSWave® for Her,  a non-invasive, clinically proven therapy that uses high-frequency, low-intensity sound waves to address sexual health concerns in women.

GAINSWave® for Her restores sensation and natural lubrication by increasing cell signaling in blood vessels, which increases blood flow to nerves and the vaginal lining. It uses a process called neurogenesis, which activates the growth of healthier vaginal tissue to enhance sensitivity in the vagina and make orgasms easier to achieve.

Treatments are performed by a GAINSWave®-certified provider in their office. Each treatment typically lasts 15 to 20 minutes and requires no downtime, so women can go about their daily routine without skipping a beat. Because no medication is involved, there are little to no side effects, and while patient outcomes may vary, women can typically see results within the first 6 to 12 sessions.

“GAINSWave® is saving my marriage and my self-esteem. As I got older, sex became more and more painful, causing me a lot of issues. After treatment, I have no more pain, and orgasms seem to last a lot longer,” says GAINSWave® for Her patient, Melissa R.

With GAINSWave® for Her, women can regain their confidence and improve their overall sexual health with no drugs, surgery, or harmful side effects. Making changes in this area can lead to improvements in other areas as well by creating ongoing connections, building trust, and strengthening the bond between them and their partners.
