Sexual Health Q&A

What is sexual health?

Sexual health involves the health of your reproductive organs, body functions during sex, and sexual desire. Proper sexual functioning is vital to your overall well-being, healthy intimate relationships, and optimal mental health. See the KK NP in Adult Health team at the first sign of sexual dysfunction.

What are common sexual health concerns?

Some of the sexual health concerns many men and women face include:

  • Low libido (sexual desire)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Vaginal laxity in women
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
  • Premature ejaculation in men
  • Low hormone levels

If you or a loved one struggles with sexual health issues, see the experts at KK NP in Adult Health for an evaluation. 

What can cause sexual health problems?

Sexual health abnormalities can stem from numerous factors, including:

  • Stress
  • Excess body weight
  • Family history of sexual health problems
  • Past trauma
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship struggles
  • Physical health problems
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Aging
  • Some medications
  • Lack of sleep
  • Unknown causes

Adopting healthy habits is the best way to reduce the risk of sexual health problems, but some causes can’t be helped.

How does my specialist diagnose sexual health issues?

The KK NP in Adult Health team determines if you have sexual health challenges and how severe they are after discussing your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, medications, and more. 

They check your vital signs and complete a physical exam. KK NP in Adult Health provides STD testing, a psychiatric evaluation if needed, blood tests, or additional diagnostic tests to diagnose your condition and develop an effective treatment.

How are sexual health problems treated?

KK NP in Adult Health offers an array of treatments for sexual health problems, including:

Hormone replacement therapy

The practice provides hormone replacement therapy, including testosterone replacement therapy and estrogen therapy, using various methods that increase hormone levels in the bloodstream. You might try pills, patches, injections, creams, gels, vaginal applications, implants, or other methods.


O-Shots for women use injections containing parts of their blood: platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP can increase cell regeneration, enhance sensation and orgasms, reduce urinary incontinence, and tighten lax vaginal tissues.


The P-Shot for men uses PRP injections to stimulate blood flow, strengthen erections, improve sexual sensation, and treat ED and other common men’s sexual health issues.
