Survey: Most Doctors Don´t Talk About Sex With Their Patients


Results of a natonal survey show that gynecologists as well as other doctors often avoid talking with their female patients about their sex life even though it´s proven that sex is important to health and happiness.

29 percent of doctors routinely asked patients about sexual satisfaction and only 28 percent about the sexual orientation of their patients. Researcher Dr. Stacy Lindau says that "Many women are suffering in silence".

Women often don´t talk about their sex life because they are embarrassed. However, "understanding a patient´s sexual function rounds out the picture of her overall health and can reveal underlying issues that may otherwise be overlooked."
