Women's Sexual Health in Aging
In a recent article in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, Drs. Lisa Granville, Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Geriatrics, and Janet Pregler, Director, Iris Cantor-UCLA Women’s Health Center and Associate Professor, David Geffen School of Medicine, review common factors in caring for the sexual health of older women. The authors introduce specific patient cases and address common questions by subject area. Drs. Granville and Pregler also provide evidence-based resources, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations for screening for sexually transmitted infections in older women, a list of common medical conditions and surgical procedures associated with sexual dysfunction, and routine screening questions for older women’s sexual health, just to name a few.
