What Your Gynecologist Should Know About Your Sex Life

NPR has a story about what you should be discussing about your sex life with your gynecologist.

If your OB-GYN doesn’t ask you about your sex life, who will?

That’s the question that comes to mind on reading about a new survey of the women’s health specialists and what they don’t talk about with their patients.

Most gynecologists did ask a patient if she was sexually active. A measly 14 percent asked about sexual activity and pleasure. Only 28 percent asked about a patient’s sexual orientation. Yet one-quarter of the doctors say they had expressed disapproval of their patients’ sexual practices.
