My biggest passion is to help patients with vaginismus, vulvodynia, vestibulodynia, chronic pelvic pain, pudendal neuralgia and any other painful condition of the pelvis. I have a particular interest in unconsummated marriages and love guiding couples to that that first amazing experience.
I have presented the excellent results we have obtained in our multi-disciplinary team management of these conditions at various international conferences and have such a big interest in this field that I am gathering data to do a PhD on penetration disorders.

I am not an endocrinologist or even a specialist physician, but if I did not know a thing or two about hormones, I would have had to close my practice! Hormones play such an important role in the sexual functioning of men and women.
Testosterone, especially, plays a very important role in our sexual desire, arousal, orgasm and even in sexual pain. It is decreased by the contraceptive pill and other medications and also decreases with age in men and in women. We use testosterone off-label in women with sexual dysfunction and proven low testosterone. In men we have registered products available in South Africa. Testosterone is given according to international guidelines and under very close monitoring.
I quickly learned that sexual health is not only about testosterone. If the adrenal glands, thyroid, brain hormones (neurotransmitters), insulin and immune system are not all healthy, people are tired, over-weight and not in the mood for sex. We have to look at all of these hormones holistically. Sorting out hormones is much more about lifestyle than it is about popping pills, but is is worth it!
Many people have been told by doctors that their hormones are “normal” because they are within the reference ranges, but the balances might still be out. That often leaves them fat, infertile, frigid and frustrated. Have it checked!
ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION and PREMATURE EJACULATION
I know how frustrating and embarrassing erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculations can be to any man. I attend international conferences annually to make sure I am up to date with the latest knowledge regarding the treatment of these conditions. You will be surprised how easy it is to treat! Don’t suffer in silence – make an appointment and lets sort it out!
