The Pelvic Floor Foundation of South Africa Workshop was held on the 1st & 2nd of December 2017.

Dr Heather Blaylock was invited to speak on “Sexual Health Post Hysterectomy”. The positive and negative psychosexual and physical impact of the removal of the uterus, a sexual organ, in pre and post menopausal women.

It was an honor to share the stage with Dr’s Alan Alperstein, Tobie de Villiers, Katrien Dehaeck, Lamees Ras, Erika Drewes, Peter de Jong and Willie Fourie.

Discussions covered Hormone Replacement Therapy,  Uterine Prolapse, Incontinence and an Integrated Doctors approach to the gynae patient.

Thanks to Dr Stephen Jeffrey and Pieter Kruger for the invitation and for organizing a phenomenal two days with live surgeries and an opportunity to learn surgical techniques on cadavers. A real privilege.
