Sexual Health Q&A

What is sexual health?

Sexual health is a focus within women’s health. It encompasses all aspects of how you feel and function regarding sexuality and sexual interactions. Everyone deserves access to high-quality sexual health services, even women who are not currently engaged in sexual activity. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sexual health is a “state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being regarding sexuality.” Their definition goes beyond an absence of disease or dysfunction and focuses on making sexual relationships and sexuality as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible. 

Why is sexual health so important?

Human beings are designed to be sexual creatures, and this aspect of life is essential. From the time you begin engaging in sexual relationships or considering sexuality — through menopause and beyond — sex is part of life. 

Having access to a skilled gynecologist helps you get the sexual health guidance you need. 

Sexual health is especially important for young women. When it comes to issues of consent and safe sex, girls and women deserve accurate information delivered in a nonjudgmental manner. 

What are some sexual health services?

Sexual health is an incredibly personalized area of care. Your gynecologist shapes these services around your unique set of needs, which can shift and change over time. 

Some of the areas of focus during sexual health services include:

  • Knowing when you’re ready to engage in sexual activity
  • Learning how to communicate your desires and needs with an intimate partner
  • Identifying an unhealthy sexual connection
  • Learning about sexually transmitted disease prevention, screening, and treatment
  • Avoiding unwanted pregnancy
  • Navigate body confidence issues
  • Identifying sexual coercion

These are just a few examples of topics you might discuss during your visit. For women entering or moving beyond menopause, you may want to talk about things like low sex drive, vaginal dryness, or painful sex. No matter the subject matter, your consultation with the Menopause Solutions team is ready to talk about anything that concerns you.

Scheduling a sexual health visit is fast and easy, so whether you choose to connect with Menopause Solutions online or over the phone, don’t delay.
