Ever felt like there’s a world of women’s health issues that remain shrouded in silence, particularly when it comes to the bedroom? 

Dr. Sameena Rahman, also known as GynoGirl, pulls back the curtain on taboo topics, starting with the often-misunderstood condition of vaginismus. 

Her candid storytelling not only reveals her own professional and personal battles but also sheds light on the cultural constrictions that compound women’s sexual health struggles. 

Discover how this gynecologist is breaking through cultural barriers and championing the need for comprehensive sexual education within communities where the topic is traditionally avoided.

In this episode we cover:

-Dr. Rahman talks not only of her own personal battles and triumphs but also of those affected by vaginismus, reinforcing the crucial role of partnership and self-advocacy in navigating this often silent struggle.

– The historical context of this condition.

-Dr. Rahman shares her journey, from confronting biases in medical training which illuminates the dark corners where cultural taboos and educational deficiencies obscure the understanding of women’s sexual health, particularly within the South East Asian community.

-We go over the spectrum of treatment options, from botox injections and pain management tactics to the indispensable role of a holistic team approach involving physical therapists and mental health professionals.
