What is sexual health?

Sexual health is more than simply the absence of disease and dysfunction. It also strives to encourage a positive relationship with sex and sexuality. Being sexually healthy means you can enjoy sex without pain, discomfort, or any other roadblocks that might impact your health and wellness.

What services are included in sexual health?

Dr. Gelderman-Moffett offers a complete range of sexual health services at her office, including:

Menopause care

Menopause marks the end of your reproductive years. It officially occurs about 12 months after your final period. Along with menopause comes a number of hormonal fluctuations that can lead to hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, and other uncomfortable symptoms. 

Dr. Gelderman-Moffett provides comprehensive menopause care to ease your symptoms. In addition to menopause consultations, she is one of only 20 North American Menopause Practitioners in the Denver metro area who offers hormone therapy to restore your hormone levels.

Sexual dysfunction treatment

Whether you frequently experience low libido, vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, or urinary incontinence, Dr. Gelderman-Moffett can diagnose and treat the source of your discomfort. In addition to hormone therapy, she uses the Alma® FemiLift laser for complete vaginal revitalization.

STD screening and treatment

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can negatively affect your sexual health without proper treatment. Dr. Gelderman-Moffett performs a wide range of STD testing for herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and more. Once you have the correct diagnosis, she can begin the appropriate treatment protocol.

Reproductive care

If you’re nearing the end of your reproductive years, it’s important to plan for your next chapter. That may mean removing a long-term intrauterine device (IUD), preparing for perimenopause, or even caring for an unplanned pregnancy.

What sexual health treatments are available?

Dr. Gelderman-Moffett offers several types of sexual-health treatments at Zephyr Health, including:

Hormone therapy

Hormone therapy addresses hormone imbalances that can develop as you age. It’s one of the most common treatments for menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes, mood swings, temperature changes, and weight gain. It may also help treat the symptoms of thyroid problems in women.

Vaginal revitalization

If you frequently experience vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, pain during sex, or vulva pain, the Alma® FemiLift is a laser device that can tighten your vaginal tissues and improve lubrication for more enjoyable sexual function.
