Can fibroids affect your sex life? Unfortunately many of you already know from experience that the answer to that is “yes.” Because of their location and because they cause so many oppressive symptoms, uterine fibroids can wreak havoc on not only a normal life but on the desire for an intimate relationship.
At our recent Fibroid Relief At Last Charlottesville event, we had the privilege of of hosting a sex therapist, Dr. Annette Owens, on our panel. As a follow-up to the event, and as part of her regular column, The Sex Files in C’Ville Weekly, Dr. Owens has written an informative article about the impact of uterine fibroids on sexual health.
We’d like to share it with you because we believe Dr. Owens discusses a topic that in the past has been considered somewhat taboo, but is very important for women to discuss.
