Covington Women’s Health Specialists physician, Dr.
Meridith Farrow appeared on “The Weekly Check-Up” on News/Talk WSB Radio on
Sunday, January 12th. The weekly radio show addresses a wide range of topics
about health. It includes in-studio interviews and caller questions fielded by
featured guests and the show’s host.
On the January 12th show, Dr. Farrow discussed sexual
dysfunction and decreased libido. As a dedicated, all female OB-GYN and
midwifery care practice for every stage of a woman’s life, these conditions are
treated here at Covington Women’s Health Specialists.
In the in-depth interview with the show’s host Dr. Bruce
Feinberg, Dr. Farrow shared her personal background, what drew her to practice
medicine, and her choice of the OB-GYN specialty. They discussed a
recent medical study published by the Journal of the American Medical
Association (JAMA) that finds no meaningful association between using
talc-based or other powders and ovarian cancer. Dr. Farrow shared the findings
particularly interested her since she lost her mother from ovarian cancer,
which shaped her career choice to be a doctor.
Dr. Farrow also spoke about her practice of “Gyno-chiatry,”a
term she created to describe her process of evaluating if a patient’s sexual
dysfunction is a mental issue, a physical issue, or both. From there, she decides
if there are behavioral changes her patients can focus on addressing in their
personal lives, if medicine or medical procedures are needed, or if a
combination of both physical and mental health treatments can help.
Dr. Farrow ended the show encouraging women to speak up
about sexual dysfunction and decreased libido, especially with their
gynecologists. They are here to help, so find one you are comfortable working
with to address these issues and find a treatment that works for you.
