Welcome to HerMD!
Meet our Founder, Dr. Somi Javaid.
Dr. Somi Javaid is a board-certified OBGYN and pioneer in the women’s sexual healthcare space. She founded HerMD, a female-first, insurance-based women’s healthcare center to help educate, advocate for, and empower women to take control of their sexual health. Just last month, HerMD raised $10 Million in a series A fundraise to bring our unique healthcare model to women across the US. Listen to her TedX Talk on gender disparity in healthcare and check out her recent feature in Forbes.
HerMD’s mission is to educate, advocate for, and empower women.
Educate: Many women do not know that they may be suffering from some type of sexual dysfunction. 43% of women suffer from sexual dysfunction, yet many suffer in silence – afraid to talk about their issues, dismissed by their doctors, or unable to find a provider trained in sexual health. At HerMD we educate women and help them understand their treatment options.
Advocate: There are currently 26 FDA-approved drugs for male sexual dysfunction and only 2 for women. Through research, education, and ensuring we are all having the conversation about women’s sexual health we can advocate for women and close the gender gap in sexual healthcare.
Empower: At HerMD women are heard. We listen to their concerns, their symptoms, and we work with them to develop a treatment plan that empowers them to reclaim their sexual health.
