I've been a physician providing women's healthcare since 1989. I had a traditional obstetrics and gynecology practice for 17 years. Since 2006 my practice has been devoted to midlife women, specifically providing gynecologic care and helping women navigate the perimenopausal and menopausal years. (It's tricky for some women, in case you hadn't noticed.)
One of the trickiest issues is women's sexual health. I realized that there are multiple changes, common to many women at this stage of life, which result in (sometimes unpleasant) changes in sexual function. But there weren't great resources for women to access to learn more about it, or purchase products that might help.
In April 2010, I launched an on-line business, MiddlesexMD.com to help women enjoy sexuality for life, offering clinically sound information, practical advice, and intimacy aids. Sexuality is so important to our relationships and our happiness -- my goal is to help women preserve that as we age.
