We know that sex, time, and talk don’t always fall naturally together. Women are often uncomfortable raising sexual health issues with their health care providers. And practitioners are sometimes pressed for the time that lengthy explanations require.
MiddlesexMD gives midlife women a factual guide to the changes that come with menopause, and how those changes can alter how they experience sex. The website educates and encourages women to take steps to maintain their sexual health.
A brochure you can share with patients is available in two formats. You can download a simple one-page version of "Maintaining Intimacy before and after Menopause" to print here: Maintaining Intimacy Guide (168 KB). Or we offer, at no charge, the same content in a tri-fold brochure. To order, call us at 888-398-6763 or email us at admin @ MiddlesexMD.com. (If you would like to review the brochure in advance, you can download the PDF to review it here (1.77 MB).

“Your products are saving my personal life. I’ve always recommended these products to my patients, but recently started using them in my personal life and as a menopausal woman they have made a huge difference!!! Just wanted to share.”
"I’m a practicing physician and also a member of NAMS [North American Menopause Society]. I’m just dropping these lines to thank you for developing a forum for this frank talk about our sexuality. I’m linking your site to my webpage and encouraging my patients to try the products.”
"What a wonderful, much-needed site this is! I am a 57YO registered nurse, and along with discovering several products here for my own use, I will also recommend MiddlesexMD to my patients when such issues arise. I work with a number of oncology patients, and I can imagine that they'll find both the product selection & the knowledge/advice sections very helpful. Your tasteful, matter-of-fact, up-beat presentation makes searching this site & shopping here a rewarding experience. Thanks!"
"I'll also pass info about your site on to my fellow nurses & doctors. You really are providing an excellent service! Searching for sexual health products/information can be daunting, especially for older women. But I can't imagine that at MiddlesexMD even a shy, reserved lady would find anything but sound, reassuring, medically approved advice, and frank, un-blushing discussions of topics that affect so many (probably most!) middle-aged & older women."
"Thank you for bringing your info, advice and products for women to the MICNP-Central Michigan Chapter Conference...Your lecture was informative and certainly one that will change how I will treat (particularly postmenopausal) women. The products you brought with you and your web site (which I have already seen!) will help many of our patients realize there is something to be done to help them enjoy a very important aspect of their life. I look forward to continuing to help women enjoy their sexuality!"
"The women from our clinic really appreciate the information and products offered thru your website. Having your team members NAMS certified also gives credence to the fact that your organization understands the challenges of mature women’s health. Once again, thank you for your commitment to healthy aging."
