Marriage Counseling Q & A

What is medical sex therapy?

Medical sex therapy is specialized counseling aimed at bringing you closer to your partner. As an OB/GYN, Dr. Pam has a clinical background and can talk to you about sexual wellness and the problems and challenges you might face medically. But, as a women’s health advocate and menopausal expert, she offers more to patients.

To further connect you and your partner, Dr. Pam uses her medical sex therapy training to help bring the intimacy and romance back into your sex life after menopause.

Through her counseling, she helps you better understand what’s happening during menopause and how it might affect your emotional and physical health. While Dr. Pam may be talking to you, she encourages you to include your partner in the discussion to open the lines of communication and improve both you and your partner’s sexual happiness.

What can I expect during menopausal counseling?

The goal of menopausal counseling is to help you better understand what’s happening to your body during menopause. Dr. Pam aims to empower you with knowledge.

Perimenopause, the transitional period before you hit menopause, and menopause cause both physical and emotional symptoms. Dr. Pam helps you understand the physical changes that occur during menopause, how these changes might make you feel, and what you can do to manage both the physical and emotional symptoms.

What type of medications can help improve my libido?

While talk therapy is an important aspect of Dr. Pam’s marriage counseling, she also offers medication to help improve arousal and sexual function.

Addy™ is a prescription medication that increases a woman’s libido. However, Dr. Pam wants to point out that this medication can help many women, but it’s not effective for everyone.

Are there any other treatments that can help my sex life?

For women experiencing vaginal dryness or atrophy, Dr. Pam offers MonaLisa Touch® at the Georgia Center for Menopausal Medicine. MonaLisa Touch uses a special laser light to rejuvenate vaginal health. It stimulates the production of collagen, a protein responsible for the elasticity and strength of your vaginal wall, to improve lubrication.
