Speaking to My Medical Mantra, sexual health physician and counsellor Dr Deepak Jumani, said, “Generally, people don’t speak about the sexual issues. Owing to which they face lots of problems in their married life. They do not consult doctors even if they are suffering from the health issues.”

He added, “If a patient gets appropriate treatment at the right time they can overcome the health issues. But, due to the fear factor and taboo associated with the sexual health people do not come out and speak. In order to spread awareness about the sexual health issues we are starting this campaign.”
