"Feminine Hygiene" is big business- "feminine" of course being the acceptable marketing euphemism to avoid saying the word "vagina". Over 50% of post-menopausal women are using at least one so-called “feminine hygiene” product on their vulvas or in their vaginas. But are vaginas so smelly that there need to be thousands of products and a billion-do…

The number one reason women give for not taking estrogen is fear of breast cancer. This fear is based on the 2002 study which has been reevaluated and shown to be flawed in a number of ways. Despite solid proof that estrogen therapy does not cause breast cancer and other serious illness, most doctors continue to exaggerate the risks and undersell t…
 
Obesity is a medical illness that is linked to heart disease, stroke, joint pain, and even many cancers. There are biologic reasons that make it difficult or impossible for some people to lose weight. But most doctors have little or no training in obesity management and basically tell their patients to “eat less” or “try harder.” Less than 1% of ob…

In this episode Dr. Streicher discusses: The reasons WHY someone may have sexual problems POST HYSTERECTOMY What is, and what is not,…
 
It used to be so simple. Women were just advised to get a mammogram every year. But now we have not just x-rays, but ultrasound, MRI, digital breast tomosynthesis, screening mammograms, and diagnostic mammograms. Women are confused, and frankly, a lot of doctors are also confused. I am joined by Dr. Lisa Larkin, a board-certified internist, a certi…
 
It’s a common scenario. A woman is given a prescription for a local vaginal estrogen, or DHEA, and uses it faithfully but continues to have painful intercourse. In most cases, the product is working just fine and there is another reason for the pain. In this segment Dr. Streicher discusses: The TOP 3 REASONS women have pain despite using estrogen W…

Individual cells that make up the vaginal wall are loaded with water in young women but lose all that moisture right about the time you lose your estrogen.

Years before estrogen production completely shuts down, HORMONE LEVELS start to FLUCTUATE wildly during that special time of life known as PERIMENOPAUSE.

When there is a lack of lust 20 years into an otherwise loving marriage or relationship, many, if not most of my patients come to me thinking their indifference to sexual activity is a result of declining hormone levels and if write a prescription for estrogen or a libido pill, everything will be fine.

When it comes to local vaginal estrogen products, you have a lot of choices…
