Speaking up about female sexual dysfunction

In case you haven't seen it, there's a terrific profile of gynecologist Leah Millheiser, MD, in today's San Francisco Chronicle. Millheiser directs Stanford's Female Sexual Medicine Program, and she blogs about women's health issues on DrLeahM.com.  The Chronicle piece discusses Millheiser's research on female sexual dysfunction and her efforts to demystify the subject. It also describes her early influences, including her parents - an orthopedic surgeon and a nurse - and radio host Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
