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.
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.
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.

Menopause is a time when there is no more menstrual bleeding. Perimenopause is a time when the ovaries’ production of estrogen can waver and sputter before eventually ceasing altogether (menopause). This time of changing estrogen production and unbalanced hormones can present quite a rollercoaster of symptoms!
Many women begin experiencing problems with unbalanced hormones long before their periods stop. Sometimes women experience perimenopause for years. If periods become either heavier, more painful, more irregular, or last longer, these can be signs of hormonal changes during perimenopause.
Every woman is unique in how long her symptoms may last. For some women, abnormal periods may occur for as much as a decade. For other women, periods may stay fairly normal, but they begin to have hot flashes, night sweats, lack of focus, weight gain, or anxiety. It is important for women to know that there are proven and safe treatments to end all of their perimenopausal symptoms.
The Ashford Center specializes in the treatment of unbalanced hormonal cycles, including the Advanced Endometrial Ablation procedure which can end periods for good. Typically, women ranging in age from their late thirties to late fifties can find freedom from problem periods, PMS, or other hormonal-imbalance symptoms of the perimenopausal phase.
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.
