Women’s Sexual Health Comes Out of the Closet

Abstract: Sexual dysfunction impacts more women than men and most people don’t know it. While men’s sexual enhancement solutions are discussed openly, the complete opposite can be said for women. It’s time to change this.

A study suggests that more women than men ages 18-59 suffer from sexual dysfunction, yet many doctors rarely discuss the issue with their female patients. A Journal of American Medical Association report shows that 43 percent of women experience sexual dysfunction as compared to 31 percent of men the same age. Plus, according to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, common issues in women such as depression, anxiety, sleep and diet problems may be tied to the satisfaction of their overall sexual health.

Michelle King Robson of the Phoenix area knows all too well about this.  She dealt with her own sexual health issues after having a complete hysterectomy in her early 40s.

“I don’t think I’ve ever had a doctor ask me about my sexual health or my activity,” says Michelle, Founder, Chairperson and CEO of EmpowHER, an award-winning health media company for women, and a women’s health advocate.  Michelle testified before the FDA in 2010, where she addressed the issue of female sexual dysfunction.

As more medical researchers delve into the relationship between general health and sexual health and TV ads showing lubricants and other sexual products are now running in prime time, it may become easier for doctors and their patients to discuss sexual health issues.

Michelle says things are already improving, one conversation at a time. She says, “Sexual health encompassed over one sixth of all health discussions on our website since the beginning of this year.”
