SEXUAL ENERGY SERIES-5: New Options for Women’s Sex Lives – Dr. Somi Javaid : 791

Welcome to part 5 (of 6) of our Bulletproof Radio Sexual Energy Series! We’re bringing you lots of new information about sexual health, wellness, research, devices, and performance. We’re combining that with special offers, discounts and all kinds of resources on the Dave Asprey blog. Be sure to scan the show notes below for details!

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking about female sexual wellness with Dr. Somi Javaid. She’s a leading obstetrician and gynecologist who’s been practicing for over 15 years. She’s considered to be a pioneer in the fields of menopause and sexual medicine treatment.

Dr. Javaid founded a different healthcare clinic model just for women called HERmd in Cincinnati. With a suite of services and options, she aims to close the gender gap in healthcare and empower women to take control of their sexual health.

She’s a fierce advocate for making sure women get the care and treatment that they need, and that shapes how she works. However, it’s rare and hard to find effective treatment for women’s sexual health in a healthcare system that often prioritizes the sexual needs and challenges of men. 

“Forty three percent of women struggle with sexual dysfunction, and it's like why is there such a stigma?” she says. “Why do we have two medications? Why are we continually ignoring and dismissing these women? It's a travesty. Imagine if there was any other condition that affected 43% of women or men. Would we ignore it the way we do this?”

One area in particular is showing a lot of promise for women with low female libido, also referred to as hypoactive sexual desire disorder. “One out of every 10 women suffer from it at some point in their lifetime,” Dr. Javaid says. Since 2015, Addyi and Vyleesi have been FDA approved. 

Dr. Javaid is helping women normalize, talk about what’s going on with their sexual health, and find real solutions. She mentions new laser technology for tissue regeneration called the CO2RE Intima, vaginal health care, new contraceptive options, and how to handle the changes that come with perimenopause and menopause.
