More than 43 percent of women across the country, of all ages and races, have some type of sexual complaint or problem; but more often than not, they don't talk to their doctor about it. How can doctors bring up this issue without making their patients feel uncomfortable? Dr. Michael Krychman, executive director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine, joins host Dr. Maureen Whelihan to discuss how to overcome the barriers when talking about sex with patients, as well as what causes low desire in women and how to treat it.
