Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder

It’s Sexual Health Awareness Month and I need to get a few tidbits out to my patients and viewers to raise awareness of some of the most common issues of female sexual dysfunction people with vaginas face!!!!   Let’s talk about getting our groove back (sorry, I am probably dating myself with this reference).

Hymen and Virginity Testing: Is this the Membrane of Honor?

EID Mubarak! Let's talk about the hymen and virginity testing: IS this the membrane of honor?

Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause and Effective Treatments

Vaginal Atrophy- In the best sense the word "atrophy" means to waste away.  In our worst connotation it means to shrivel, deteriorate or become a vestigial during evolution. Dear Lord, is this what we want to think of the vagina for almost half the women in menopause? Certainly not, and yet it was not until 2014 when the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH) and the North...

Menopause Symptoms and Depression Awareness

Today I want to  discuss an important topic that many of my patients face or will inevitably face in their lifetime- Menopause. Brace yourself, because Menopause is coming! When I used to think about menopause, I thought about old age, sagging skin, dryness, and generally emotional time for women.
