When it comes to sexual pleasure, men typically orgasm 90% of the time during sex. Women, on the other hand, only orgasm 40% of the time. Known as the “pleasure gap,” there are several factors, both physical and psychological, that can impact an individual’s sexual satisfaction. And while men might have their “little blue pill,” what options do women have to boost their sex life?
Luckily, there are actually plenty of options out there that increase female sensitivity during sex – such as extracorporeal shockwave therapy, ThermiVa, the O-shot, and Sottopelle testosterone replacement pellets. Even better, they’re all available at Austin Labiaplasty & Vaginal Rejuvenation. While each patient has different needs and goals, here’s what you need to know about our sexual wellness treatment options.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a form of acoustic soundwave therapy that is proven to enhance clitoral sensitivity. By “shocking” the tissue, it creates painless micro-traumas that prompt the tissue to restructure and regenerate. The same technology has been used for years to treat kidney stones, and more recently erectile dysfunction in men. Penile and clitoral tissue respond similarly to shockwave therapy, which means greater sexual responsiveness and better sex.
ThermiVa is another non-invasive option that utilizes radiofrequency to improve sexual function in women by restoring vaginal tissue. Childbirth, aging, and hormonal changes can all negatively impact vaginal laxity and sensation, taking a toll on your sex life. By reviving vaginal tissue and stimulating blood flow to the clitoral area, women who are treated with ThermiVa often experience increased vaginal moisture and more intense sexual sensation.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Another option for treating sexual dysfunction is with PRP therapy, aka “the O-shot”. PRP contains platelets with powerful cytokines and growth factors that increase blood flow, stimulate collagen and activate tissue regeneration. The shot is injected into the clitoral and vaginal tissue, but don’t worry: numbing cream is applied to minimize any discomfort. Patients can expect increased clitoral sensitivity and response resulting in better orgasms.
Sottopelle Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Hormonal imbalances can also harm your sex life by affecting your libido. Sottopelle is a form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that’s easy-to-use and low-maintenance. Compared to other forms of HRT that use synthetic hormones, Sottopelle is a bioidentical hormone pellet therapy that’s made from plants. Bioidentical hormones mimic your body’s natural secretion, helping restore your hormone levels to a normal state. A simple procedure is conducted to place the pellets, with replacement suggested every 4-6 months.
Again, each patient is different so everyone will need a different treatment plan. In some cases, a patient might do best with one treatment option while others might benefit from a combination. No matter what, if you’re interested in figuring out how to increase female sensitivity during intercourse, we can help!
