Women’s Sexual Wellness
Sex is a natural part of life, and that means that sexual wellness should be a natural part of your healthcare. However, many women are reluctant to talk about their sexual health or assume that declining interest in sex is simply a natural part of aging. Our caring and compassionate team at OneLife Health & Performance in Palm Beach Gardens, FL believes that truly optimized health for patients also includes treatments for sexual wellness for women.

What Is Women’s Sexual Wellness?
For women, sexual wellness and health encompasses a wide range of physical, mental, and hormonal factors that contribute to healthy sexual activity. Sexual wellness for women often involves a careful balance between aging, hormones, and other circumstantial factors that can negatively impact an interest in sex.
Many women assume that a gradual decrease in enjoyment of sex is an unavoidable part of the natural aging process; however, expert physicians such as Dr. Winnard understand that sexual health is important no matter what age you are.
Causes of Poor Sexual Wellness
There are many potential causes. Depending on the woman, the factors associated with declining, uncomfortable, or unenjoyable sexual activity can vary. Some common causes of poor sexual wellness include:
- Hormonal changes
- Hormonal imbalance
- Mental health
- Organ or body health
- Less sensitivity
- Pregnancy and childbirth
The truth is that poor sexual wellness in women can be caused by virtually any imbalance in the brain, mind, or body. Some symptoms of poor sexual wellness are temporarily caused by changes in the hormones and body associated with pregnancy or childbirth. Other symptoms can be the result of medications, physical illness, or mental illness.
Common Sexual Wellness Concerns
Although it isn’t commonly talked about, many women share the same sexual wellness concerns. In fact, one study reports that over 40% of women suffer from some sort of sexual wellness concern. Common concerns include:
- Lack of sexual interest
- Reduced sexual pleasure
- Difficulty with arousal or stimulation
- Uncomfortable or painful sex
- Reduced sensitivity

- Increase sexual desire and satisfaction
- Enhance mood
- Boost self-esteem
- Improve clarity and focus
