Gynecologists More Hesitant When It Comes To Female Sexual Problems
Mar 26, 2012 10:58
A national survey of OB-GYN sexual history screenings published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine have revealed that gynos today are actually hesitant in discussing their patients sexual problems.
Researchers at the University of Chicago found that while two thirds of OB-GYNs regularly inquire about their patients' sexual activity, only 40% of those surveyed ask questions about sexual dysfunction. Additionally, a mere 29% of those doctors routinely ask about patients' sexual satisfaction, and only 28% bothered in confirming their patients' sexual orientation.
The fact that these professionals aren't openly discussing these topics with their patients might be the reason why treatments sexual problems in women such as low desire, pain during intercourse or lack of pleasure during sex are so scarce. The report's author, Stacy Tessler Lindau, M.D., explains:
Sexuality is a key component of a woman's physical and psychological health. Obviously, OB-GYNs are well positioned among all physicians to address female sexual concerns. Simply asking a patient if she's sexually active does not tell us whether she has good sexual function or changes in her sexual function that could indicate underlying problems.
