The post Painful sex (dyspareunia) after surgical menopause appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. A surgical menopause is one caused when a woman has her ovaries removed. It can also refer to a menopause triggered following a hysterectomy that has left her ovaries in place. There are many menopausal symptoms and some, like the hot flush, are often easier to deal with than others. Perhaps the hardest ones to overcome though are those that affect our sexual well-being and these include things like vaginal dryness or loss of libido. In this article we’re going to explore issues around painful sex because for some women libido diminishes because they start to find sex painful, so dealing with that can often sort things out in the desire department. There are two types of painful sex, also known as dyspareunia; the first is associated with sexual entry and the second is a much deeper pain that occurs when your partner thrusts into the vagina. The causes of both of these can vary and include things that concern all women, regardless of whether they have had surgery or not, and others that might be associated with the menopause and/or surgery. Entry pain The most common reason for painful sex in women who have had a hysterectomy and/or gone through the menopause is insufficient lubrication.

I received a call the other day from someone supposedly at the social security administration asking for medical records for one of my patients who filed for disability. What's particularly eye raising is that I had finished seeing this patient for the first time earlier that same day. I was informed that every state has a set fee that a medical practice can charge for sending medical records for disability determinations. Is that true? I have never heard of that before. What is a fair... charging for disability forms and medical records

For NSG residency applications, does it help to have research outside of neurosurgery field (publications in neurology or psychiatry journals)? Or, does it have to be on neurosurgery research? Also, what about basic neuroscience research that is not directly relevant to neurosurgery and is more relevant to psychiatric field (for example, circuits governing thirst/hunger/depression/anxiety/etc)? Would these help as well? Thank you.
