It is common to hear of men with sexual dysfunction, but women can also struggle with the issue.
September is Sexual Health Awareness month, which encourages individuals to take control of sexual intimacy and any concerns affecting their quality of life. It’s important to embrace your sexuality, educate yourself, and speak to a urologist if you notice any changes or have concerns with your body.
Sexual dysfunction is a low sex drive that is common in both men and women. Men face issues such as Erectile Dysfunction and can be the result of prostate cancer treatments like a prostatectomy. For women, sexual dysfunction could involve painful sex or low arousal. Many health concerns such as cancer, high blood sugar, heart disease, and menopause could be factors. However, there are many resources available to help.
Dr. Lauren B. Schulz, DO is a female urologist at New York Health. “Urology is rife with uncomfortable and often taboo issues,” she said.
Expertly trained in general urology and urological surgery, she specializes in women’s health and female urological disorders. Her areas of expertise include advanced treatments targeting prostate health, urologic oncology, sexual and voiding dysfunction, in-office vasectomies, kidney stones, and urinary tract infection management and prevention.
Her strong interest in sexual medicine and the diagnosis and treatment of men and women with sexual health concerns has helped her patients improve their quality of life. “I am able to create a safe space to tackle them as a partner with my patients. I approach patient care the way I would want to be approached and treated with compassion, respect, evidence-based medicine, and listening to patient concerns.
Sexual Health Awareness means being proactive about your sexual health and advocating for ways to have improved, meaningful sexual lives. Speak to your physician today!
