Beyond The Terms: Female Sexual Health & Menopause with Dr. Lauren Streicher


Dealing with the change of life for women can be tough. Perimenopause can make you feel anxious, depressed, confused, in pain and everything in between. So how do you tell these symptoms apart and manage them? What can you do to make this journey less stressful and make sure you’re taking care of yourself?

This week’s Empower Your Pelvis Podcast, Dr. Amanda Fisher and Marin Cole will interview our guest, Dr. Lauren Streicher. Dr. Lauren is a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine. Her clinical interests include all aspects of women’s health but Dr. Streicher has a particular interest and expertise in menopause and sexual health. In addition to her interest in consumer outreach and education, Dr. Streicher is considered an expert in the academic world. She does research, publishes in the scientific literature, lectures at medical conferences, and devotes significant time to teaching residents and medical students.

In this episode, they will talk about Breaking the common myths, misconceptions and misnomers of menopause, sexual health, and postpartum so you can have a better understanding of them, and feel more confident in knowing that your body is doing what it needs to do!

They will touch on such topics as:
-The hormonal balance is driven by key symptoms.
-Menopause is a time when a woman’s reproductive system is changing. It doesn’t cause symptoms for everyone, but some women do have menopausal symptoms.
-Menopause can be a difficult time for women, but it’s not something that most of us are prepared for.
-It’s important to talk to your doctor about what’s going on with your body so they can help monitor your progress through perimenopause.
-One of the big myths we’re always talking about is that people think perimenopause and menopause are the same thing.
-Perimenopause is not just the end of your menstruation cycle—it’s an extremely important time when your body changes significantly. This can lead to symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, mood swings and more.
-Hormone levels are fluctuating, and it’s important to know what you’re going through and how it will affect your body so you can take any necessary steps to keep yourself healthy.
-Gynecologists, for the most part, are not experts when it comes to menopause. It’s not something that it’s taught, certainly not in medical school. This is why you’ll need a specialist if you want a truly holistic approach to your menopausal health care.
-Sexual medicine has its own set of challenges. It’s not just about being able to get an erection, or being able to have an orgasm. A lot of women in their twenties and thirties are having problems with libido and intercourse that’s painful or difficult.
-This is something that women are not being told about—even those who are aware that they might develop some vaginal dryness or maybe some pain with intercourse are not told about this other impact of menopause.
-Dryness is not limited just to the vagina. It can also affect a woman’s bladder and urethra, making it difficult for her to urinate and even causing incontinence.
