Sexual Health concerns can impact women and non-binary individuals born female at birth of any age after puberty. From concerns about your arousal, libido, or discomfort during intercourse, we are trained to help you address these intimate concerns.
We know that talking about your sexual health and how it relates to mental health can feel intimidating and even embarrassing. Therapists at Ally Psych are trained to help you feel as comfortable as possible with this important conversation.
Your sexual and mental health are intimately connected. How stressed, anxious, depressed, or angry you are can impact your performance, mood, and comfort during sex. Other factors that impact your sexual health can include traumas or drug and alcohol use. We know this can be difficult to talk about and that many people are shamed for even bringing it up, but our Doylestown therapists at Ally Psych are trained to help you feel safe, comfortable, and in control every step of the way.
In case you’re wondering if this is something you should bring up to your therapist, here are some common signs and symptoms of Women’s Sexual Health concerns.
You have an unusually low desire or urge to engage in sex and find that you’re seldom “in the mood.” This can be true even if you’re attracted to your partner and want to be in the mood.
A difficulty experiencing an orgasm and/or significantly decreased intensity of orgasmic sensations.
You may have difficulty having intercourse, experience pain in the Genito-pelvic region, have a fear of pain or penetration, and have tension in the pelvic floor muscles. This can occur even during arousal.
You tend to feel exceedingly irritable, depressed, and anxious leading up to your period, which resolves at the onset of menses.
We understand that your Sexual Health concerns can feel impossible to overcome. You’ve probably already tried to help yourself with reading blogs, listening to podcasts, and talking to friends. If you’re ready to take the next step and start enjoying life more fully, we’re here to help.
