SHEROES already offers mentoring and career helpline support to its community and this will integrate with those efforts. Women need to navigate several issues, as they navigate their work and life and having LoveDoctor become part of the SHEROES family will help us address those needs. It is a good time to put women's needs and aspirations on nation building map."

I hope that through this merger women feel safe, supported, and heard every single day through our counseling and other support channels. No one should feel alone. While the men have always used Lovedoctor.in frequently, we know that women have questions about love, relationships and sex too - but are shy, scared, or fear retaliation if they ask."
