First of all, we’d like to put the word “normal” in perspective. You know the saying that every snowflake is unique? The same is true about people, and the female anatomy in particular. While there is a normal range in terms of how your body functions and is put together, there are infinite variations in terms of skin color and other characteristics. Such variation is beautiful, but many women are unhappy with their appearance and/or suffer from functional concerns, and this is precisely why Aguirre Specialty Care exists — to help you achieve optimal function and body confidence!
We put together a few FAQs on sexual health, female anatomy and other common concerns to help you get started on your wellness journey with us:
My inner labia seem too large. They extend beyond my outer labia and make me feel extremely self-conscious. Am I abnormal?
The size and color of labial skin varies like snowflakes. It may not feel like it, but many women have labia that extend past their vaginal lips. The question to ask yourself is if your labia cause discomfort because it chafes and interferes with your ability to comfortably wear jeans, workout pants or swimsuits. If you are experiencing discomfort as the result of your labia, it’s time to visit us for a personal consultation. We’ve performed thousands of successful labiaplasties at Aguirre Specialty Care. We are so skilled in this service that we also correct the work of other surgeons who have administered botched labiaplasties. You can count on us to help you find a solution that works for you!
I leak urine every time I cough or laugh, jump up and down or jog. This has been the case ever since I gave birth. Is there a treatment for bladder leaks that doesn’t involve surgery or downtime?
You could be experiencing urinary stress incontinence. Childbirth puts a lot of stress on the bladder and pelvic floor. For some women, childbirth and pregnancy can stretch out and weaken the pelvic floor, which weakens the pelvic floor’s ability to fully support the bladder, resulting in bladder leakage.
We can help tighten and strengthen the pelvic floor with a variety of proven non-surgical treatments:
- FemiLift™ is a laser vaginal resurfacing treatment that resurfaces the entire circumference of the vagina, resulting in a tightening effect that helps improve bladder leaks.
- The O-Shot® is an injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the clitoris and anterior vaginal wall, which helps improve blood flow and generate new collagen. This in turn strengthens the urethra and improves bladder leakage.
I never want to have sex, and when I do engage in intimacy, I struggle to feel aroused and rarely, if ever, climax. What is wrong with me? Is there a way to get help?
There are a few issues going on here it seems. One is a lack of arousal. The other is a lack of sexual sensation. Both issues are interconnected, of course! Oftentimes, we can improve both concerns with the same treatments.
More women than you realize struggle with a lack of sexual sensation and a low libido. But the good news is that there are plenty of treatments that can help. Your first step is coming in for a personal consultation. A few treatments you may benefit from include:
- The Viveve™ treatment, a non-surgical radiofrequency treatment that helps tighten the vaginal entrance and enhance sexual sensation for up to a year following treatment.
- The O-Shot™, a PRP treatment that helps stimulate blood flow and sexual sensation while also improving urinary incontinence.
- FemiLift™ laser vaginal resurfacing, which helps tighten the vagina, enhance stimulation and improve bladder leaks.
