Program for Sexual Medicine
Roughly 40% of women have a physical, medical, hormonal or emotional issue that interferes with intercourse or other sexual activities.
This is a topic that is rarely broached in a physician’s office. Even when it is discussed, many times women are not offered solutions, even though sex is an important part of physical and emotional well-being.
While cultural factors, religious beliefs, social issues, general health and age all influence the frequency and ability to have sexual activity and a normal sexual response, medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease or neurologic problems are often the precipitating problem or complicate an existing problem.
If you’re looking to regain your sex life, start with the Northwestern Medicine Program for Sexual Medicine.
