Dr. Sameena Rahman
Clinical assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology, Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine, Illinois, US
“I chose women’s sexual health because it’s my passion to educate and empower women about their health care. With how difficult it is to navigate the health care system and so much misinformation and stigma around women’s sexual health, it’s important to disseminate evidence-based information to women so that they do not become victims of predatory industries who prey on their insecurities.”
Areas of expertise
  • Obstetrics and gynecology
  • Menopause
“There are so many historical taboos surrounding the female body. I’m passionate about increasing awareness and greater cultural understanding of topics such as menstruation, sexual dysfunction, chronic pelvic pain, postpartum care, and menopause.”
