Sexual Health Q & A

What is sexual health?

Sexual health encompasses the physical health of your genitalia and reproductive organs, as well as your hormonal, mental, and emotional health. For example, your libido comprises your hormones, neurotransmitters, as well as emotional and mental cues. At the same time, your body needs to cooperate with your desire. 

What are common sexual health problems?

OptiHealth Institute helps patients cope with:

  • Decreased libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Stress/Urge Urinary Incontinence/Leakage


Some patients want to restore their sex drive, while others want to regain their ability to have sex. 

How are sexual health issues treated?

At OptiHealth Institute, Dr. Nager approaches sexual health through both a Functional and Regenerative approach. He performs extensive blood, saliva, and urine testing to make sure that there is not a metabolic or hormonal cause for your sexual difficulties. Then, depending on your needs, he might recommend:

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)

Your hormones regulate everything in your body, from your metabolism and digestion to your sex drive. As you age, your hormone levels decline, which can cause a variety of disruptive sexual symptoms, including libido loss, vaginal dryness and atrophy, and erectile dysfunction.

BHRT restores your hormonal balance, alleviating your symptoms, and enhancing your health. Depending on your needs, Dr. Nager might prescribe pills, topical creams, gels, patches, or subdermal pellets. 

Peptide therapy

Peptides are chains of proteins that your body needs for optimal body function. Depending on your needs, Dr. Nager might recommend peptide therapy to improve your libido and reduce erectile dysfunction. 

GAINSWave® 

GAINSWave® uses mild shockwaves to stimulate new blood vessel growth in the penis. Reduced circulation is a common cause of erectile dysfunction. Restoring the vascular health in your penis can help reduce erectile dysfunction and restore your sex life. 

O-Shot® and P-Shot®

The O-Shot and P-Shot use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to stimulate cellular repair and regeneration in your genitalia. In women, the O-Shot reduces vaginal dryness and restores vaginal tissue. The P-Shot can enhance erectile function and the size and strength of erections.

Viveve® 

OptiHealth Institute offers Viveve radiofrequency vaginal revitalization treatments to relieve vaginal atrophy and dryness. In addition to restoring vaginal tissue and addressing laxity and dryness, it may also reduce urinary stress incontinence and improve external vaginal aesthetics.
