In many cases, hormone imbalance is the root of sexual health problems in women. Fortunately, that's a very treatable problem. Most sexual health issues are very treatable, but you need to see specialists for diagnosis to determine the right solution.

Hormone replacement therapy, like pills, implanted pellets, patches, topical gels, or other forms, can rebalance your hormones. In addition to treating sexual health issues, hormone replacement therapy can help with other common symptoms in menopause, such as mood swings and hot flashes.

Antibiotics can effectively treat most sexually transmitted infections (STIs), so there's no need to delay treatment. Even STIs with no cure, like HIV, are very manageable if you take medication to prevent its progression.
