It's Time to Talk About Sex After Menopause digital campaign that helps raise awareness of an often-neglected area of women's health. For men, Viagra is regularly discussed but for women, painful sexafter menopause, and sex as they age is not discussed. Missy’s organization is trying to change that.
"When it comes to talking about sex after menopause, women and their doctors pull back and are reluctant to have any earnest dialogue about what is really going on," said Missy Lavender, Founder and Executive Director, Women's Health Foundation. "When we compared this silence for women to how men's sexual health is a socially acceptable part of the vernacular today, we realized something needed to be done."
