ISSM/SMSNA Sexual Health Symposium Planned in Kenya
Sex Might Not Induce Labor
The ISSM and the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) will focus on sexual health and cancer at their first Sexual Health Symposium next month in Kenya.
In collaboration with the HCG-CCK Cancer Centre, the Kenyan Association of Urological Surgeons (KAUS), and the Faraja Cancer Support Trust, the event will take place November 22, 2019 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Nairobi.
"Our goal is to make the Sexual Health Symposium in Nairobi a first in a series of activities that can ultimately result in the development of clinical and academic collaborations throughout Kenya, and more generally across Africa," the organizers wrote.
More information on the symposium, including the program and a link to registration details, is available here.

Pregnant women reaching the end of their term are sometimes advised to have intercourse as a way of inducing labor. However, a new Journal of Sexual Medicine study finds that this method might not be effective.
The study included 1,483 women with low-risk, singleton pregnancies at term. Some were instructed to have sex at that time; others were not.
Sex did not appear to hasten the onset of labor, but the researchers encouraged further study.
