Dr. Zarine Kotian explains when a gynecologist can assist a woman who is going through menopause and shares why many older woman are developing sexually transmitted diseases. Dr. Kotian is an experienced OB/GYN at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Glendale, Arizona.
So menopause is a big aspect of many women’s lives. There is a lot of literature, a lot of shows on menopause. The best person to ask is your physician, that there are ways that we can help you. There are medications. There are more natural ways of dealing with menopause that a woman can get advice from her physician.
I am seeing a lot more cases of older women developing sexually transmitted infections. Many women are sexually active with a variety of partners well later into their lives – 30s, 40s, 50s, even the older age group – 60s, 70s. I have definitely seen an increase in sexually transmitted infections – chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes and genital warts definitely.
