Media

TV

Usually it’s men who have the reputation for putting off a trip to the doctor until it’s too late, but when it comes to women’s health, both patients and doctors can also get a bit squeamish talking about things like genital pain.

Professor Vancaillie comments on a new study that suggests Botulinum Toxin Type A may be useful in the treatment of nerve pain.

 

Hormones

Sex is the spark that ignites many relationships. But that heart-racing enthusiasm you first have can diminish with time, and for some reason, it seems to fade more quickly in women. This program is about female desire. Why it comes, why it goes and what, if anything, you should do about it. A/Prof John Eden helps answer these questions.
