GynecologySexual Health & Concerns

We've got sex covered.

Sex and all that goes with it can be an uncomfortable subject to talk about. However, your sexual health is an important part of your wellbeing. A healthy sex life can reduce stress, improve your quality of sleep, and strengthen your relationship with your partner. Addressing any problems (physical and emotional) and treating and preventing STIs can avoid bigger overall health problems. Whether it's questions about sex, your body, your identity, or relationships, or concerns about your health, talk to us.

Physical ailments

Painful sex, vaginal dryness, inability to have an orgasm, and other physical issues can lower the desire to have sex. In most cases, there are options available to address these issues and get you back to enjoying sex again.

Emotional issues

Your mind and emotional well-being can have a strong effect on your ability (or inability) to enjoy sex. If your provider has ruled out any physical issues that may be preventing a healthy sex life, it might be time to address your emotional health.

What is human papillomavirus (HPV) and how can it be treated?

HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection that can cause cervical cancer or genital warts. Approximately 80% of women will be exposed to the HPV virus through sexual contact at some point in their lives, and most people who become infected with HPV do not even know they have it. Although most cases will not progress to cancer and HPV can go away on its own, women who are diagnosed with HPV do need to be monitored.

Luckily there is a vaccine that can help protect you from ever getting certain types of HPV, which is given in three separate shots. Ask your provider if the vaccine is right for you.
