A woman’s sexuality is a very personal subject. At Clinic Sofia, we work to create an environment of honest communication and support. We will help you with any questions or issues, from infertility to contraception, sexual problems to sexually transmitted diseases.
Birth control comes in many forms. Some work by adjusting the hormones in your body. Others create a temporary barrier between the sperm and the egg. Certain sterilization techniques offer a permanent option to women who do not want to bear more children. Each contraception method carries different potential side effects and benefits. You should talk with your doctor about the best option for you.
Some women prefer to use natural family planning (NFP) to prevent unplanned pregnancies. NFP is a process that involves monitoring the cervical mucus or basal body temperature. If you are interested in learning more, talk to your doctor.
A woman’s sexual response peaks in her late 30s and early 40s, and many women have an active sex life well into their later years. Sexual problems can be caused by many factors, such as pregnancy, illness, stress or problems with trust and commitment. If you have questions about a sexual problem, contact Clinic Sofia.
Infertility can be caused by a number of factors. Today, there are many different treatment options for couples hoping to conceive including medication, surgery or assisted reproductive technologies. Each method has varying risks and rates of success. And what works for one couple may not work for another. Your doctor needs to evaluate both you and your partner to determine appropriate treatment options. If you are having trouble conceiving, call Clinic Sofia for a consultation.
There are many different types of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). Some STDs can be cured or the symptoms managed with medication, but others, such as HIV and herpes, never go away. Symptoms of an STD can include itching, vaginal discharge, spotting, redness, swollen lymph nodes or severe pain.
To prevent STDs, use latex condoms, limit your number of sexual partners, know your partners and avoid sexual practices that tear or break the skin. If you suspect you have an STD, or that you’ve been exposed to one, do not have unprotected sex and contact Clinic Sofia for an evaluation.
