    Houston, we have a female sexual dysfunction problem. Female sexual problems, which can affect women of all ages, are underdiagnosed and undertreated--in part because clinicians are not the best at asking about sex in primary care visits. In the course of this episode, learn about how to have that sex talk you’ve (maybe) been avoiding, what to ask when working up sexual problems in women, and find the words to talk to patients about sex. Today, we’re lucky to have the female sexual health expert of experts, Dr. Stacy Lindau, MD, MA, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Medicine-Geriatrics at the University of Chicago Medicine, on the show to teach us the best “sex talk” language, the differential for female sexual problems, and explore therapies. Sadly, there’s no sildenafil-like magic bullet, but a multidisciplinary team can make real impact on female sexual problems. Don’t forget to check out http://womanlab.org
