Sex In The Time Of Menopause/Andropause

Sex In The Time Of Menopause/Andropause

Every human body undergoes a pause at some point in time. When this pause happens in men, it’s called andropause, and when it happens in women, it’s called menopause. Both of these pauses cause a decline in sexual function and loss of libido! Oh, and how this time period accelerates your skin’s laxity is a story for another day!

Historically, menopause in women has not been treated appropriately over the past decades. They weren’t offered either hormones or lasers, leaving women to face the pause without any support! They did get an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication when they got depressed as a result of this decline. Men, on the other hand, develop prostate and erectile dysfunction issues as they reach andropause. They are proactive in seeking help, and mostly their andropause is handled with testosterone injections and pills like Cialis or Viagra, until they stop working, and surgical implants become the last resort.

But in the past few years, new technologies have emerged that are FDA cleared and used to prevent the loss of blood flow to your sexual organs. One such laser is Alma Duo, which is FDA cleared for both men and women. This deep shock wave treatment transmits energy into your body, promoting the growth of new blood vessels! This phenomenon is known as angiogenesis. The company recommends 6 treatments to start and then maintenance with a treatment every couple of months! Many of my clients also seek IV infusions or testosterone shots combined with B12 for added enhancement. The price ranges from $1250 to $1500 per session. Unfortunately, it’s still not covered by your health insurance; however, we do offer financing for qualified clients.

As always, I would love to hear from you and welcome any questions! Please feel free to text or call 914-368-6609
