In January, I was working on an article I’d been asked to provide to OBG Management magazine. They’d asked me to talk about why I offer products through my practice—which was, actually, the same motivation that led me to found MiddlesexMD: There are some simple products available that can help women remain sexually active, but it’s not always easy—or comfortable—to buy them.
As I wrote the article, I wondered how you as patients feel about products being offered through your doctors’ offices, so I asked. And a number of you responded, either on the blog or directly, with your thoughts. You were overwhelmingly positive, assuming that your relationship with your health care provider was one based on trust to begin with (and I hope we’re all that fortunate!).
OBG Management published my article, called “Vibrators, Your Practice, and Your Patients’ Sexual Health,” in their April issue. Read it if you like, and take a copy to your next doctor visit if you think it would be helpful in opening a discussion about how he or she can be more helpful to you and your sexual health!
Thanks to all of you who voiced your support or concerns. We’ll keep learning together—and stay as sexually active as we choose!
