Is Sex Important For My Health? (with Lyndsey Harper, MD)

Crank up the Salt-N-Pepa, friends, cuz Your Doctor Friends are TALKIN SEX, BABY!

In all seriousness, Your Doctor Friends think that healthcare providers can do a better job making sexual health education and treatment more accessible and less stigmatized. Sexual health concerns, and sexual dysfunction are so prevalent, and deserve meaningful, evidence-based treatment strategies within reach.

So let’s break down some stigma, and have a candid conversation about all things SEX!

We are so happy to welcome our guest, and expert in all things sexual health, Lyndsey Harper, MD, FACOG!
