Many women report some form of sexual health issue, be it decreased desire, arousal or pain with intercourse. Although these conditions are common, women shouldn’t suffer nor feel embarrassed to discuss these issues with their healthcare providers.
And while women have been reluctant to talk about these issues in the past, research has shown that increasingly more women are becoming fearless and confident to share the problems they may be experiencing.
Brooke Faught, Clinical Director of the Women’s Institute for Sexual Health, recently joined me to discuss the current shifts in attitudes toward women’s sexual health, and why it’s taken so long for women to feel comfortable in discussing these issues with their doctors. She also shared some of the treatments that currently are available for women who may need help.
