Dr. Jeff Fahy – Specializes In Designing Customized Treatment Plans For Women To Treat Menopausal Symptoms And Female Sexual Dysfunction
BAY MINETTE, Ala. (January 27, 2016) — Menopause can bring on a number of unwanted symptoms to the women experiencing it. These include hot flashes, irritability, fatigue, insomnia, skin changes, and even sexual desire dysfunction (also known as poor libido). However, women do not have to suffer in silence – there are ways to treat poor libido and all these symptoms – and Dr. Jeff Fahy with Premier Women’s Health has specialized in this type of treatment for the past 20 years.
Traditional methods for treating sexual dysfunction have included testosterone treatments, which increase a person’s circulating testosterone. This can be very effective for helping those with a lower sex drive get back to where they want to be.
“Increasing a woman’s circulating testosterone is the most successful way to treat sexual desire dysfunction during menopause,” Fahy said. “I have been successfully treating low libido in this manner, mostly with bioidentical hormone pellet implants for the past 20 years.” states Dr. Fahy.
But, for some who can’t take testosterone because of the potential side effects there is also a new drug that was recently released to help women with poor libido. Addyi is from Sprout Pharmaceuticals, and is touted as the “female Viagra.” This prescription drug was released on Oct. 17, 2015, and is designed to enhance a woman’s sexual drive. It does have some potential side effects so, just like testosterone therapy, women taking Addyi should be carefully selected and managed by their doctor.

With the pros and cons of each treatment, it is important to discuss all options with your doctor when deciding what best fits your lifestyle and health background. According to Fahy, “each woman with menopausal symptoms has a unique story,” so he customizes his treatment with respect to each patient’s system complex, medical history, and current state of health.
