Our Women’s Sexual Health Clinic offers multidisciplinary care for women’s sexual health and wellness. We provide patients and their partners with all components of expert-driven care in one location. We contribute to the field of research in understanding female sexual dysfunction by establishing and evaluating evidence-based treatments. Our main areas of focus include libido, desire, pleasure, sexual health related to menopause and perimenopause, and sexual pain disorders.
If you had awful migraines, you’d see a doctor. If you broke your arm, you’d see a doctor. If you suffered from a heart attack, you’d see a doctor. If you’re having issues with your sexual health, come see us. Just like any other health issue, when a problem arises, it needs to be addressed.
Sexual health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality, according to the World Health Organization. It involves a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.
