- Do you feel a lack of desire or interest in sex?
- Is sexual intercourse painful?
- Are you experiencing a life or relationship change that is affecting your sexuality?
It is completely normal and natural to experience changes in your sexuality (even daily!) depending upon your mood, health, hormones, and lifestyle.
Perhaps you have heard the statistic that “43% of women have sexual dysfunction”. That puts a negative stigma on a woman’s sexual concerns, and for Dr. Chavez, that is unacceptable. The reality is, 100% of women have sexual concerns. These concerns are absolutely nothing to be ashamed of – and they cannot be helped; they are an integral part of being human!
The good news is, these concerns can all be addressed and overcome with the proper education and resources. The first step is to talk about your concerns and issues with a professional who specializes in women’s sexual concerns.
Dr. Chavez provides a comfortable space for you to ask questions and talk about your sexual concerns in a judgment-free zone. Depending upon your upbringing, culture, religion, past experiences, and more, you may bring some misconceptions to the table. Dr. Chavez will debunk those myths and empower you with the proper mindset, behaviors, and techniques to overcome your barriers to sexual health.
Women’s Sexual Health Concerns
When working with women on overcoming sexual concerns, it is important to use an integrated approach that incorporates understanding the roles of both mind and body.
