Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder
HSDD, or Hypoactive (low) Sexual Desire Disorder, is a condition that affects roughly 15 million women in the US. That’s close to 1 out of 10. It is one of the most common forms of sexual dysfunction, but for years it was one of the least talked about. That means a large percentage of women go untreated, simply because they don’t have all the information. They don’t know help is available.
Dr. Vahora hopes to change that. She’s been working with patients suffering from HSDD for more than 10 years. Because HSDD is a medical condition influenced by a variety of factors, she believes it is critical to work with a doctor who has the knowledge and expertise necessary to tailor every treatment plan to the individual patient. Dr. Vahora has worked hard to be that doctor for countless women.
Through discussion, screening, and a possible medical examination, Dr. Vahora will identify the cause (or causes) of your condition. She’ll then work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs, addressing not only the symptoms, but the source of your issue.
Dr. Vahora knows low sex drive affects more than just a woman’s body. It can impact her confidence level, her environment, and her relationships. HSDD is a disorder that can wreak havoc on a woman’s life.
If you’re suffering from low libido, decreased sexual desire, or discomfort during sex, Dr. Vahora wants you to know: She can help.

Menopause and Sexual Desire | Mona Lisa Treatment
Does sex still excite you? Or, like many women, do you feel like you’re losing interest or are less excited about sex and intimacy. This isn’t abnormal and it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many reasons why your sexual desires have diminished. Some reasons may be the result of menopause, vaginal dryness, pain during sex or childbirth.
The lessening of sexual urges and intimacy can take a huge toll on your relationship or marriage. And, as we mentioned before, it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s time to re-ignite your libido! The MonaLisa Touch®, a non-surgical laser therapy also known as vaginal rejuvenation, may be just the thing to bring back that sense of sexual excitement. Sex can be both comfortable and pleasurable once again – returning that spark of intimacy with your partner!
Following are three commonly asked questions that can be solved with either hormone therapy or by MonaLisa Touch.
- Will my sex drive suddenly disappear when I go through menopause?
There’s no set rule. All women are different. It’s natural for sexual desires to change over time. Hormone therapy is available in Systemic and Local therapies that can help relieve perimenopause and menopause symptoms. I work with pharmacists to create a specialized medicine compatible for each patient. The non-hormonal option is MonaLisa Touch therapy. The bottom line is that there are viable ways to ensure that your sex drive will not disappear!
- Why is my sexual desire decreasing after menopause?
A decrease in the amount of estrogen and testosterone can be the cause. Sleeplessness and hot flashes, along with vaginal dryness all contribute to this decrease in desire. Vaginal dryness can make sex very uncomfortable. Hormone or the MonaLisa treatment can make all the difference.
- What can I do to increase my sex drive, especially after menopause?
First, if you are experiencing a decrease in sexual desire, we need to get to the bottom of the problem. Have your desires been diminishing because of painful intercourse? Is it because of menopause and a decrease in hormones? Are you having trouble getting aroused? Do you no longer experience orgasms? These are all questions that need to be addressed.
As your Doctor, I can help. Remember that as we age, our bodies change. And that includes our vaginas. Childbirth, age and time all take a toll on our vaginal tissue and muscles. It’s called vaginal atrophy. Low estrogen causes the vaginal walls to thin, dry out or become inflamed. The vagina loses its elasticity and that does affect sexual pleasure. The MonaLisa treatment was designed for just this purpose – to turn back the clock of time.
This medical laser delivers controlled energy to the vaginal tissue revitalizing the cells so that they make more collagen. Problems like itching, irritation and pain during intercourse can be eliminated as a result of this therapy.
Do you wish you enjoyed sex again? You can!
