CLASS: Sexuality and Desire After Menopause
Sexuality and Desire After Menopause
with Akeira Johnson, MD
Saturday, May 5, 10 am
THIS IS A MORNING CLASS!
This class will address common concerns associated with female sexual function leading up to and after menopause. Together, we'll review the natural progression and phases of menopause and how these affect the overall well-being and balance during this life transition. We will look at treatment options for you to discuss with your health care provider. We'll also talk about over-the-counter options for managing vaginal dryness and loss of vaginal elasticity, as well as sex toys and other novelty items that may assist in treatment of sexual dysfunction.
From Akeira Johnson, MD: I have a specialty practice in women’s health and I see the void of accurate education about sexual health in my patient's lives. I have started and currently run a female sexual health clinic at the VA hospital here in Milwaukee. I think that there are so many patients that can benefit from being empowered to talk about sex with their healthcare providers. In my practice, I focus on normalizing the many acts of sex and the importance of a sex life that is both consensual and enjoyable. I hope that outside of the VA I can empower people to have further discussions with health care providers if there is concern for pathology, empower those interested in (legal) nontraditional sexual activity (same sex, swinging, etc), and embracing sexual health as a priority.
$10 per person.
