One of the duties I have working in academics is teaching the community and my fellow physicians about what I do: sexuality and fertility.
This is something I love to do. Luckily for me, these topics trigger interest in most of my audience, and I can usually capture and keep their attention for the hour that I have them. Falling asleep and yawning is not accepted!
I often ask if there are questions at the end of the talk, and understandably, most don’t ask questions, but people do come up to me at the end, individually.
Sex and fertility (or lack thereof ...actually), after all, are sensitive subjects. We also don’t want to reveal our insecurities, difficulties or perhaps unusual practices out in public.
That being said, I have been asked by our computer gods to tell you that the e-mails and feedbacks are not encrypted or blacked out; therefore, names are printed when I get them. Unless you want to be identified, we suggested not leaving your name.
Also, I will try to answer questions posed (which I have enjoyed receiving and reading), understanding that I cannot do this all the time. I will use the feedback whenever possible as subject matter for future blog entries, but the answers will remain rather general so as not to reveal people’s identities.
Nothing in this blog is intended to be specific medical advice for any condition. Please see your own doctor for specific questions.
I thank you for your interest and your questions.
