Dr. Barb DePree – LIFELONG INTIMACY
The Dr. Theresa Nicassio Show
Join me on The Dr. Theresa Nicassio Show with gynecologist and menopause care specialist Dr. Barb Depree. We will be discussing foundational intimacy, common challenges to intimacy over time, including the potential erosion of your sexual relationship due to health challenges and physiological changes that can be associated with perimenopause/menopause and general aging, sexual dysfunction, and the risks associated with sex becoming a habit instead of a shared and meaningful intimate experience. Dr. Barb will also share some tools and offer solutions to help you maintain a healthy sexual relationship or turn the boat around if you’ve already found yourself in a less-than-desirable intimacy rut.
About Barb Depree MD
Dr. Barb DePree is a gynecologist and women’s health provider for almost 30 years and a menopause care specialist for the past ten years.
Award-Winning Menopause Practitioner
Named the Certified Menopause Practitioner of the Year in 2013 by the North American Menopause Society for “exceptional contributions” to menopause care, Dr. Depree was recognized for the outreach, communication and education she has done through MiddlesexMD and her work as director of the Women’s Midlife Services at Holland Hospital, Holland, Michigan, where she has an active practice.
“Nothing says love like taking out the garbage.”
~Dr. Barb DePree, Award-Winning Gynecologist, Menopause Specialist & Author of Yes You Can: Dr. Barb’s Recipe for Lifelong Intimacy
“The world is your oyster–just in a different shell than when you were younger.”
MiddlesexMD was founded on the following core set of beliefs:
- We believe that as we age, women, whatever their lifestyle or preferences, have the right to fully enjoy their sexuality.
- We know that great sex makes us feel good physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
- We understand the profound changes in our biology that come with peri-menopause and menopause. We know that these biological changes can change the way we experience sex.
- We understand that sex comes with a learning curve. Just as we did when we were developing our sexuality, we need to learn again what our bodies and minds need to keep sex pleasurable.
- Many of us will benefit from products that encourage and support sexual health, and we need a comfortable place to learn about and to purchase safe and trusted products.
- We want our privacy. We need to be sure our explorations and purchases are private.
- As medical professionals who are focused on the care of midlife women—and as midlife women ourselves—it’s our privilege and our duty to provide reliable and current information that will help us embrace these changes.
