Everything You Wanted To Know About Your Vaginal Health But Were Afraid To Ask

Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2011 at 9:00 AM

National Women's Health Week begins on Sunday, May 8, and the theme for this year is It's Your Time—the reason being that women are often more concerned about the health and well-being of their loved ones than they are about themselves.

As part of National Women's Checkup Day on Monday, May 9, Monistat—yup, the vaginal yeast infection treatment company—is sponsoring a chat-with-an-OB/GYN event. Beverly Hills, Calif.-based Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz will be on hand via live webcast to answer questions women may have about their gynecological health, but are too embarrassed to ask.

Gilberg-Lenz will also discuss the results of a Monistat-sponsored study that found "42 percent of women do not have regular general health checkups and 44 percent do not visit their gynecologist every year."

Women can email their questions in advance to The live webchat is on Monday, May 9, at 5 p.m. and can be viewed at
