Menopausal Women Experiencing Distressing Pain During Sex Suffer Due to Misperceptions

Results from qualitative research of postmenopausal women with vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA) show that they recognize the significant physical, emotional and psychological consequences of untreated dyspareunia (painful sex) yet they continue to suffer because of misperceptions about the condition and a general lack of understanding about treatment options. Sheryl A. Kingsberg, PhD, Chief of Behavioral Medicine in the Department of OB/GYN at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, will present the findings during an oral presentation, “Women’s Attitudes and Behaviors towards Vulvar and Vaginal Atrophy.” The presentation is scheduled for Oct. 1 at 4:45 p.m. PDT at The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) 2015 Annual Meeting.

St. Mary’s College Religious Studies Professor Examines Christian Perspectives on Women’s Sexuality, Reproductive Rights in America

What are women’s rights with respect to reproduction and sexuality? This question is controversial, but Katharina von Kellenbach, professor of religious studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, takes a clear stand: “Women have a right, and a responsibility, to be able to say ‘no’… to childbearing and sex.” In her new essay, “The Paradox of Freedom: Mary, the Manhattan Declaration and Women’s Submission to Childbearing,” von Kellenbach questions biblical interpretations of freedom that are used to restrict women’s moral agency in the United States.
