Sexual Health Q&A

What are some common sexual health issues?

Many people’s sexual vitality declines over time due to age-related changes and other factors. Symptoms can occur in both men and women as they age.

Men’s sexual health concerns

Erectile dysfunction and low libido are two of the most common sexual health concerns in men, which can be short- or long-term issues. When you have erectile dysfunction, you have trouble getting or maintaining an erection firm enough for sexual activity. 

Women’s sexual health concerns

Many women experience a decline in their libido as well as symptoms like vaginal dryness or pain during sexual intercourse. These issues can arise from hormone changes or physiological changes related to pregnancy and childbirth. 

What causes sexual health issues?

Many sexual health issues that arise with age happen because of hormone imbalances. They can also come up because of problems with your metabolic health. 

When you visit STL Medical Weight Loss with concerns about your sexual health, Dr. Moleski reviews your medical history and may use tests to measure your insulin, blood sugar, blood pressure, triglycerides, and cholesterol. You may have insulin resistance, prediabetes, or diabetes, which can all contribute to sexual dysfunction. 

How can I improve my sexual health?

Improving your sexual health often involves taking a deeper look and addressing overall health issues like metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance. 

At STL Medical Weight Loss, Dr. Moleski examines you and performs a series of tests to measure your blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure, and other vital details. Using this information, along with your symptoms and medical history, he can develop your personalized wellness program to address the underlying imbalances. Your plan might include:

  • Nutrition and dietary guidance
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Stress management
  • Prescription injections (e.g., semaglutide, tirzepatide)
  • Ongoing telehealth support

Prescription injections like semaglutide and tirzepatide aren’t necessary for everyone, but they can make it easier for you to make dietary changes that improve your nutrition and manage your health.
