Low Libido Specialist

Low libido, or loss of interest in sex, can affect women at any age and for a variety of reasons, but one of the most common causes is a hormonal imbalance. Clinton Ashford, MD, and Rebecca Ashford, MD at The Ashford Center specialize in the treatment of hormone imbalance problems.

Many times, lack of sex drive is the result of complex hormonal interactions within the body that can occur alongside irregular, heavy, or painful periods, PMS, or other symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

What is Low Libido?

Low libido means having a low sex drive. The desire to have sex varies enormously between different people, so it’s difficult to define what is normal in a broader sense.

Low libido is only a problem if it’s causing distress and affecting important relationships. Dr. Clint Ashford and Dr. Rebecca Ashford are specialists in helping women who are having hormonal imbalance problems, including low libido. They are committed to providing compassionate and effective care and will customize a treatment plan that is right for each unique patient.

Low Libido Symptoms & Causes

Production of female sex hormones has a significant influence on libido, so if you’re experiencing fluctuations or a reduction in the levels of sex hormones, it can impact your libido.

Drs. Clinton and Rebecca Ashford are experts in diagnosing and restoring the hormone balance that optimizes libido and that can restore sexual desire and enjoyment.

Vaginal dryness that causes uncomfortable sex, as well as problems like hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings can all contribute to lowering libido, and many women find they lose interest in sex at this time.

Low Libido Treatments

Both Dr. Clint Ashford and Dr. Rebecca Ashford are committed to providing compassionate and personalized care for each of their patients, and they bring to their treatment plans the most innovative and state-of-the-art care, including bio-identical hormones and Advanced Endometrial Ablation, a minimally invasive procedure that can help rebalance hormones and restore sex drive.

Questions About Low Libido

How can Advanced Endometrial Ablation help with low libido?

Advanced Endometrial Ablation can potentially help with low libido that is related to hormonal imbalance. The endometrium that lines the uterus is closely linked to hormone levels, as hormones trigger the breakdown of the endometrium that causes bleeding during a period.

Advanced Endometrial Ablation gently removes the endometrium without the need for invasive surgery. Once the endometrium is gone, periods are ended permanently and hormone imbalances are corrected.

Dr. Clint Ashford specializes in Advanced Endometrial Ablation procedures for women whose childbearing is complete and who wish to stop their periods for good.
