Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction, or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and consensual sexual experiences.
Sexual health is the ability to embrace and enjoy our sexuality throughout all stages of life. It is an important part of our physical and emotional health. Being sexually healthy means:
Sexual dysfunction refers to any mental, physical, or emotional problem that prevents an individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity. An estimated 31% of men and 43% of women have some degree of sexual dysfunction.
Common sexual health conditions include:
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection adequate for satisfying sex. It is important to understand how erections occur. When a man is sexually aroused, nerves and chemicals work together to relax smooth muscle tissue and widen arteries so the penis can fill with blood. Veins constrict to keep the blood inside the penis, forming an erection. Once the man ejaculates, the blood is released back into the body.
ED can happen for various reasons, both psychological and physiological.
Most of the sexual dysfunction in both men and women are treatable by addressing the underlying physical or psychological problems. The Blend Institute offers the following sexual health treatments:
Recent advances in medical devices and regenerative medicines have revolutionized the treatment of sexual problems. Some of the cutting-edge technologies offered are:
Try non-invasive technology that uses high-frequency, low-intensity sound waves to improve blood flow to the penis. Dr. Blend recommends shockwave therapy to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels to enhance sexual performance in men. Shockwave therapy primarily treats erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.
Often referred to as “penis pumps,” vacuum erection devices (VEDs) have been treating ED since 1982. A VED uses a pump to create a vacuum to help the penis become erect, while the band or constriction ring keeps the blood from flowing back out, assisting the man in maintaining the erection. These devices are a good alternative for treatment of ED in patients who refuse oral medications or can’t take them.
Vitalia is radiofrequency heat used to control the temperature of the targeted thermal energy to the tissue of the labia and/or vagina. Results include:
