From Dr. Somi Javaid, board-certified OB/GYN doctor/surgeon & founder & Leader Scientific Officer of HerMD: “To begin with, it’s important to ask your physician if they have got menopause or sexual well being enjoy. And in case you are speaking in your physician about those intimate issues and they have got their hand at the doorknob, do not waste your time…run.
