Sexual health in women over 40 – overlooked, under diagnosed and untreated?
THE JADE ROOM – starting the conversation
Every woman experiences her midlife years differently. The changes that occur during this period, including changes in sexual well-being, are typically caused by a mix of both menopause and aging, as well as by typical midlife stresses and demands.
Women in their midlife are often overlooked, underdiagnosed and untreated by a medical professional. Did you know….. Over 60% of menopausal women (aged between 40 and 65) experience problems with sex and sexual function that are directly related to their menopause; Only 25% of women experiencing these problems will discuss them with their doctor; Almost all women talking to their doctors about painful or difficult sex during menopause start the conversation themselves;
Come and chat to one of our female doctors about any issues you may be experiencing in relation to your midlife or menopause and your sexual well-being.
