Women’s Sexual Health
Welcome to our new blog category on Women’s Health.
This category is dedicated to all sexual health related issues that relate to women only. Topics range from STDs and HIV to contraception, pregnancy and even female sexual dysfunction.
STDs can occur in either sex but have more severe consequences in women. They are more frequently asymptomatic in women leading to a delay in diagnosis which in turn can lead to severe, even life threatening complications. Undiagnosed and untreated STDs can also lead to fertility problems and raise the risk of ectopic pregnancies. HPV, a very common STD, can lead to cervical cancer.Click here for details on STD Screening for Women
Contraception is a topic all women should be aware about. Even in our tiny island of Singapore, about 1 in every 4 pregnancies is aborted. Be aware of your options, risks and benefits of contraception.Click here to learn about Contraception.
Female sexual dysfunction is fast capturing the interest of the medical community. For too long, sexual medicine has been focused on men related issues such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Now the focus is shifting towards women’s sexual health problems. In the APSSM (Asia Pacific Society for Sexual Medicine) Meeting that I will be attending in November this year, there will be a whole symposium dedicated to women’s sexual dysfunction issues. Look out for my updates on this site.
I hope everyone, layman and professionals alike, can contribute actively to this discussion forum.Click here for our full range of Women’s Health Services
