Sexual Health

A woman's sexual health is an incredibly important contributor to her overall health, yet this seemingly taboo subject is often the last to be discussed… leaving women and their partners suffering needlessly.  The midwives at Vivante are available to help you discover the roots/causes and potential treatments available for the plethora of sexual health disorders that affect women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and orientations.  The following is a brief overview of the more common sexual disorders in women.  Please schedule an appointment with a Vivante midwife to discuss this in more detail.

  • Anorgasmia – the inability to reach sexual climax (orgasm) despite appropriate sexual arousal.
  • Compulsive sexual behavior – characterized by an overwhelming urge for sex that results in every day task disruption.
  • Low libido –  a lack or decrease of sexual desire that causes a woman (and often her partner/relationship) distress. 
  • Dyspareunia –  painful intercourse.  This is a fairly complex diagnosis that can have a number of causes (some of which are physiologic and some psychologic).  If you are having pain with intercourse, please contact us or your desired practitioner to schedule an appointment.
