In this special episode of “Thought Download,” join us as we dive deep into the treasure trove of insights from the 2024 International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH) Conference. Dr. Kelly takes us on a captivating journey through the conference, discussing key takeaways, groundbreaking research, and thought-provoking discussions that have the potential to reshape our understanding of women’s sexual health.


  • Lifelong learning is important for staying up-to-date with evolving knowledge about sexual health and hormones.
  • Sexuality is a human right and should be appreciated as part of the human experience.
  • Definitions and labels in sexuality can vary and it is important to ask individuals how they define themselves.
  • The microbiome and immune function play a role in vulvar pain and sexual desire.
  • Healthcare providers should prioritize addressing quality of life and understanding the unique needs of their patients. Accountability and role modeling can be powerful tools in personal fitness and wellness.
  • Menopause does not always lead to low desire, and the quality of a long-term committed relationship can be a risk factor for low desire.
  • Hormones play a significant role in personal training and muscle recovery.
  • Clitoral ultrasound may have potential applications in evaluating cardiovascular health in women.
  • Stress can have both positive and negative effects on sexual desire and function.
  • Diabetes can impact sexual function, and physical activity can help protect against sexual dysfunction in women with diabetes.
  • The use of hormone replacement therapy should be carefully considered, and the marketing of hormone-free alternatives can be misleading.
  • Coffee may have an impact on the efficacy of certain medications, including hormone therapy.
  • Advocacy and education are crucial in promoting sexual health and debunking myths.
  • The brain plays a significant role in sexual pleasure and pain perception.
  • Sex tech can enhance sexual experiences but should not replace human connection and touch.
  • There is a need for knowledge translation in research to ensure that findings are effectively communicated and applied in clinical practice.
  • It is important to prioritize consent and safety in sexual activities, and to debunk myths and misconceptions surrounding rough sex and choking.
