The Medical Student Forum on FEMALE SEXUAL MEDICINE
So why aren't more people talking about Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD)?
Medical students and physicians often report being underprepared to address the sexual health needs of their patients - especially with regards to FSD. FSD is rarely broached in the doctor's office, and stigma often prevents discussion between patients and their providers. When FSD is discussed, patients often have their conditions misdiagnosed as psychological or are told their symptoms are normal. This may impact sense of self and patients may avoid seeking medical care.
Here at The Forum, students and physicians are bringing awareness to the minimal education regarding sexual medicine taught in medical schools.
