The mind body connection is real.

Women’s health care, including sexual health, menopause care, and survivorship are multi-discplinary and often require an integrated team- based approach to treat the whole you from head to toe.

Mental Health at HerMD:

  • Counseling

    Our biology and psychology are interconnected. In medical care, no matter the physical illness or medical condition, these processes can impact an individual’s body, brain, and emotional well-being. At HerMD we offer counseling services to address the impact that gynecological conditions, sexual dysfunction, and menopause may have on your emotional and mental health.

  • Medication support

    We offer medication treatment for anxiety, depression, PMDD, PPD as well as for the mental health changes associated with perimenopause and menopause.

What most of us do not realize, is that the brain is one of our most important sexual organs!

Let’s start by identifying the many factors that affect your sexual desire.

Sexual desire can be affected by psychological factors like relationships, stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, body image, sexuality, or identity. Physical factors can also affect sexual desire, like hormonal imbalance, medication, pregnancy, illness, injury, pain. A change in sexual desire may also stem from a lack of education surrounding sexuality.

There may be some questions you want to further examine like, what kind of messages did you receive surrounding sex growing up? What are your beliefs about pleasure? Are there barriers to exploring your sexuality or what you may like/dislike? These are some of the places we explore when we begin sex therapy.

The mind-body connection.

Because of the lack of dialogue surrounding sexual health, we may see ourselves as “broken” when experiencing a change in sexual desire.

This judgment may cause distress, leaving us feeling confused, worried, or with a sense of shame. Worst of all, we may feel like we are alone in these experiences.

Many people assume that changes in sexual desire are caused strictly by physical sources, without considering the roles our brains, psyche, and cultural/societal factors may play. But, there is typically more context to a change in sexual desire than just the physical. When it comes to our sexual health, we often have to treat both mind and body.
