The Breakfast Show - Check yourself, before you wreck yourself! (BBC1's The One Show - Dr Sarah Jarvis)


This morning I spoke to Dr Sarah Jarvis (BBC1's The One Show and Radio 2). We discussed Sexual Health Week which itends to raise awareness of common misconceptions in female health.

Ø  This year’s Sexual Health Week began on 14th September


Ø  One in three women suffers from common sexual health problems during their lives, but many misdiagnose their symptoms.

Ø  Many women also admit to being too shy to talk to their GP about more personal problems.

For many women, discussing sexual health can be an embarrassing subject, which is why a large percentage choose to self-diagnose their symptoms. However, this can often lead to misdiagnosis, with many women continuing to use the wrong product over and over again, or simply living with the symptoms.

So how can women ensure they are looking after their sexual health properly? Listen below to the interview
