Womens sexual health is a HUGE passion of mine, advocacy, education and research are all crucial to developing a scientific, beneficial and forward moving idea for care whether it be through doctors or your own sexual health. But until recently, womens sexual health has been on a back burner. Even in our own lives, let alone politics and in the medical community. There’s a huge discrepancy between the advancement in mens sexual health compared to womens. Viagra has been on the market for ages…well over ten years and has been on the market for erectile dysfunction since 1998. But where is the help for women? There is none…and women suffer from sexual dysfunction as well, actually MORE than men.
Did you know that nearly 43% of women suffer from sexual dysfunction…compared to 31% of men? Yet there are 26 different drugs on the market for men, not one for women.
We have to get involved, encourage the FDA, health organizations and other companies to eliminate the gap between treatment for the same condition.
Eventhescore.org is a campaign to help eliminate that disparity. You can sign their petition HERE to help push the FDA to make this a priority and level the playing field for both men and women.
