Women and Intimacy Pain During Menopause

Dr. Norma Goodwin, President of Health Power for Minorities, interviews Dr. Lisa Masterson, an expert in obstetrics, gynecology, infertility, adolescent gynecology and family planning. She is a former co-host of the medical talk show, “The Doctors”, and hosts the weekly lifestyle podcast “Health in Heels”.

Dr. Masterson shares her focus on the the fact that when it comes to menopause, while most women who have menopause expect and discuss hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings, they are reluctant to discuss pain during intimacy, or intercourse, which is a common symptom associated with vaginal atrophy (the result of decreasing estrogen levels due to aging). Dr. Masterson discusses treatment options during the menopause journey.
