Libido Come Back 🎶
Like the change of the seasons and the rise and fall of your daily motivation, your libido ebbs and flows. Depending on where you are in your cycle—or where you aren’t because you’re going through menopause—your libido is affected.
If you’ve accepted that it’s out of your hands and have begun to grieve the loss of your libido, we’re here to stop you from putting it completely to rest. (And hey, if you’re searching up “how to boost my libido” you haven’t given up yet!)
At MedSpa at ChristiMD, we help women overcome their sexual struggles in relation to sex drive, orgasm achievement, and urinary incontinence (bladder control). Follow along with our women’s libido booster guide to find out how you can get your libido back!
Hormone Optimization: Women’s Libido Booster #1
Hormone imbalances are a major culprit of a decrease in libido. If you track your cycles, you start to notice how the spikes and dips in certain hormones like progesterone and estrogen affect you emotionally and physically.
Hormones play a role in:
- Stress and mood levels
- Blood pressure levels
- Reproduction and sex
- Metabolic rates
- Physical growth
When your menstruation days are over and you begin your descent into menopause, there are tons of changes in hormone production. Testosterone and estrogen levels drop, causing a wide range of issues, including:
- Lack of libido
- Constipation/digestive issues
- Energy levels
- Lack of sleep
- Weight changes
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
At MedSpa at ChristiMD, we combat this with hormone optimization—specifically bioidentical hormone replacement theory (BHRT). Hormone optimization uses hormones that are chemically identical to your natural ones to re-balance your system, providing you with relief from uncomfortable symptoms.
Dr. Christi talks about how hormone therapy works and the benefits:
How does BHRT work?
After we meet for a consultation, we’ll do blood work and test your hormone levels. After evaluating your blood and confirming an imbalance, we’ll formulate your hormone dosage and book your treatment.
During the 15-minute treatment, Dr. Christi will first apply a local anesthetic and make a tiny incision, nothing major. Then, she’ll use a small metal tube to place rice-sized bioidentical hormone pellets in the upper outer part of your buttock. It’ll take about 3 or 4 days for them to completely settle in and get to work releasing hormones. At around 7 days, you’ll start feeling relief!

IV Therapy: Women’s Libido Booster #2
Stressful life events, menopause, childbirth, and simply just aging can take a toll on our bodies and, plainly, reduce our sex drive. We need the right vitamins and nutrients the most when we’re going through these stressful experiences—but how often are we getting what we need?
IV therapy addresses this lack of vital vitamins and nutrients by delivering a hydrating, personalized mix intravenously. Because it’s injected directly into your bloodstream, it bypasses your digestive processes, allowing full nutrient absorption and therefore immediate relief. You can feel good knowing nothing’s getting lost along the way!
Sometimes nutrient deficiencies are hard to spot. Here are some of the common symptoms:
- Lack of libido
- Abnormal heart rhythm
- Numb/tingling fingers
- Bone pain
- Mood changes
- Muscle weakness
- Constipation/digestive problems
- Weight gain/loss
- Chronic pain
- Dull skin
- Lack of energy
Is any of this sounding familiar? Many of these are common symptoms for hormone imbalances and other health issues, too. That’s why it’s important to start by sharing your concerns during a consultation.
Our job is to get to the bottom of why you’re feeling the way you’re feeling and address your symptoms accurately. This could involve a variety of treatments or just one; each patient’s situation is always different!

Let’s say you’re feeling healthy and well at this point. Your hormones are in check, you’re staying hydrated, and you’re getting all the vitamins and minerals you need, yet you’re still uninterested in sex. No, you haven’t run out of options—let’s proceed!
Vaginal Function Concerns: Women’s Libido Booster #3
Whether you’re struggling with functional issues or confidence issues, we have a variety of vaginal rejuvenation, orgasm enhancement, and urinary incontinence treatments.
Vaginal laxity/loss of sensitivity
Vaginal laxity indicates a sensation of looseness, which usually comes about after childbirth or around menopause. It’s usually accompanied by the loss of sensitivity and feeling in the vagina, making sex unsatisfying
Emfemme 360 uses radiofrequency to rebuild vaginal tissue and collagen. This helps the vagina feel tighter and plumper, bringing back the feelings and sensitivities.
MonaLisa Touch utilizes laser technology to stimulate healthy regrowth of vaginal wall tissue. Like with Emfemme 360, the vaginal walls tighten, allowing you to feel more sensations.
Cliovana doesn’t treat vaginal laxity, but it does bring back sensations to the clitorus and labia. It works by increasing blood flow in the clitorus and labia and re-establishing pathways to the brain to tell it “this feels good!” Cliovana provides more intense orgasms and doesn’t make you wait hours to have them!
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure for women who feel stretched out—particularly after childbirth—and aren’t experiencing the same pleasurable sensations they used to. Vaginoplasty increases your ability to feel your vaginal walls again during sex.
Vaginal atrophy and dryness
Vaginal atrophy indicates the thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls. Vaginal atrophy includes dryness as a symptom, but you can be experiencing dryness and not be experiencing vaginal atrophy.
New vaginal tissue and collagen provide a rejuvenated, lubricated vaginal canal. The vaginal walls will be resurfaced and refreshed with more blood flow, telling inflammation that it’s no longer welcome!
This treatment increases blood flow and regrows vaginal tissue, which also provides resurfaced, rejuvenated, and better-lubricated vaginal walls.
Increased blood flow and sensitivity kicks dryness to the curb!
Urinary incontinence describes the lack of control over your bladder function, resulting in leakage. Leaking when laughing, exercising, sneezing, or otherwise putting stress on your bladder is known as urinary stress incontinence.
EMsella rebuilds vaginal tissue and pelvic floor muscles to improve laxity and bladder control. If you have an overactive bladder or experience urinary stress incontinence during sex or in general, EMsella could be the perfect treatment match for you.
In addition to rebuilding and tightening the vaginal tissue, Emfemme 360 helps you regain pelvic floor strength.
Sexual confidence can be related to many things. Our sexual wellness treatments at MedSpa at ChristiMD cover it all. You won’t have to worry about leaking during sex or feeling insecure about how your vagina looks!
EMsella and Emfemme 360
A strengthened pelvic floor and improved vaginal laxity will help you feel at ease and confident in the bedroom! No leaking, no problem.
A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the labia and reduces its size. In some cases, a misshapen or enlarged labia causes confidence issues, urinary health issues, and discomfort during sex. The biggest women’s libido booster of all is feeling confident, sexy, and healthy in your body!
Our Process at MedSpa at ChristiMD
Dr. Christi Pramudji values listening to women and truly uplifting them. With a subspecialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, she makes patients feel at ease and safe in her care. The first step of this process is a consultation.
When you come in for a consultation, expect to enjoy a calm, serene environment in our office. You’ll feel at ease with Dr. Christi’s warm presence and smile right away. She’ll ask you questions about your experiences, symptoms, and goals for treatment.
The information you share is vital to Dr. Christi’s role in building your treatment plan. Based on your concerns, you may benefit from a range of treatments rather than one. So, we ask that you’re open and honest about your struggles during the consultation. It will allow us to provide you with the best care possible!
Customized Treatment Plan
During this stage, Dr. Christi will take everything you shared and build your customized treatment plan to address your concerns and get your sexual satisfaction on track. It might include combination treatments or it might consist of a singular treatment session—every patient’s situation is different!
Before we start your treatment, we’ll go over all the information, expectations, and aftercare instructions with you; you will know exactly what to expect.
The best step of them all—results! Depending on your treatment, results could be immediate, or they could take a few weeks to a few months to show. Your treatment plan may also include multiple sessions or follow-up appointments to check in. If you just want to see our faces and check in, we’re always down for that!
