Being more open about your sex life with your doctor can help fix any issues.

What to ask your doctor about sex

Talking about sex can be awkward, especially with medical professionals. No matter how much you might trust your doctor, many people – particularly women – have trouble communicating about their sex lives in purely clinical and mechanical ways. This has often left people unsatisfied with their sex lives, because they don't know where they can turn for help.

There is a term for this, dubbed "door knob" questions by OBGYN Dr. Renee Horowitz. What she means by this is that they will be asked after an exam has been completed, as women will pretend to have just come up with the question as they are heading out the door. They are generally about things they are embarrassed to talk about – lack of libido, vaginal dryness, unsatisfying sessions.

"For many years, I said the same thing that many doctors still say to women: 'Well, you're busy. You're a wife. You're a mother. It's hard to feel sexy when the laundry needs doing,'" Horowitz told The Northwestern. "I always felt I was shortchanging them."

In order to make up for this problem, Dr. Horowitz took it upon herself to boost her training in female sexual health, to become a wealth of information where her female patients could turn in order to get the information they need in order to have better sex. Even just having access to information is enough to get women to seek the help they need, Horowitz has found in her experiences.

If you are having any trouble in the bedroom, consulting with a trained medical professional is likely the best route for you to take! You can look to spice things up in the bedroom by trying an arousal gel, or even alleviating any physical discomfort with a vaginal moisturizer from Blossom Organics.
