The healthcare and sexual space is expanding to meet women where they are at- both at home and mobile through apps and tele-health as well as growing medical practices designed only around caring for women. Of course, Rosebud Woman is grateful to be participating in and helping to shape the new culture for women. We had over 100 health care practitioners (HCPs) request samples for their patients and can see the increased receptivity for non-hormone based treatments, over the counter and non-prescription options promoted by HCPs! Thank you to the Innovators!!!
