Sexual Health

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a safe and effective treatment method that addresses hormonal deficiencies and imbalances as we age. These hormones are recognized by the body as self because the natural bio-identical hormones that we use have a chemical structure identical to the hormones the human body produces naturally. Other treatment options are also available depending on the specific needs of each patient.

The key to treatment of female sexual dysfunction is an accurate diagnosis and understanding of the cause of her symptoms.
