Treatment options for vaginal dryness include over-the-counter vaginal moisturizers and lubricants, hormone therapy (such as estrogen creams or tablets), and medications that stimulate the production of natural lubrication. Lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking and reducing alcohol and caffeine intake, can also help.
Treatment options for painful sex depend on the underlying cause. For example, infections can be treated with antibiotics, and endometriosis can be managed with hormonal therapy or surgery. Physical therapy and counseling can also help with certain conditions, such as pelvic floor dysfunction and sexual trauma.
Treatment options for low libido may include counseling or therapy to address underlying psychological or relationship issues, as well as medications that can improve sexual desire, such as testosterone therapy or bremelanotide.
