Vaginal Atrophy and Female Sexual Dysfunction Chart
During peri-menopause and menopause, vaginal atrophy and sexual dysfunction are often reported as problematic. Untreated vaginal atrophy can lead to painful sex and low desire. We recognize that sexual dysfunction can be caused by other causes, and a thorough evaluation needs to be done to determine if hormones or other therapies may be of benefit. Treating vaginal atrophy can include both hormone and hormone free treatment options. Some of the ingredients listed can be used to treat vaginal atrophy and sexual dysfunction.
Testosterone, Dehydroeipandrosterone (DHEA) and Sildenafil have been studied in women for sexual dysfunction. Often compounds for sexual dysfunction will contain several actives, designed to increase nitric oxide for vasodilation in genital tissue. Many over-the-counter products designed for women contain menthol, niacin or arginine. As compounds, many practitioners will add Niacin or L-Arginine to topical creams containing Sildenafil and/or Testosterone.
