Patty shares why many women don't talk about sexual health issues with their physicians.
I think women are very uncomfortable. You know, you take over 95% of women who go into their health care provider with a specific question regarding sexual health, these women chicken out before they even get into the examining room, you know, with their question because they feel embarrassed, they feel their question will be dismissed, they feel like they are not going to get the answers that they are seeking and so therefore, they don’t, many-many times women will just suffer in silence and not even ask their health care providers. They are not comfortable with it.
So many of our health care providers only have anywhere from three to ten hours of human sexuality, so they are not even equipped to answer these questions.
