Is your libido so low, sex so painful, or orgasms so rare that you often think: “not any night, honey!”
Rest assured you are not alone. In this Menopause Talk, Dr. Rachel Rubin and Dr. Maria Uloko will talk with us unabashedly about what is going on in our bodies, and what can be done to address the sexual symptoms of menopause that can cause us both physical and emotional pain. As urologists and sexual medicine specialists, Drs. Rubin and Uloko advise their patients daily on effective ways to navigate these challenges. In this Menopause Talk, they will walk us through real-life clinical vignettes, discuss treatments they recommend, and answer our many questions.
