Sexual Health Q&A

What is sexual health?

Sexual health can be difficult to define since cultures and individuals approach the topic in various ways. The World Health Organization defines sexual health as “a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality.” 

While sexual health certainly encompasses disease prevention and healthy sexual function, it also includes building and maintaining healthy sexual relationships that are safe, consensual, and rewarding. 

Everyone deserves a healthy and fulfilling sex life. At NY Midtown OB/GYN, women’s health specialists work closely with you to determine your unique sexual health needs and find ways to help you set and reach goals. 

Why is sexual health so important for women?

An expansive body of evidence supports the importance of healthy sex life in overall health and wellness. These close bonds help strengthen romantic relationships and enhance quality of life. 

When it comes to sexually transmitted disease, prevention is the best course of action. Women have a right to fully understand the risks of unprotected sex. Empowering them to protect themselves is critical to sexual health providers. STD testing and treatment services are also essential to avoid serious adverse outcomes. 

Reproductive health is also part of sexual health. Women have never had more outstanding choices regarding birth control, and practitioners strive to help you find the right fit for your family planning goals and lifestyle.

Finally, feeling comfortable and confident about your sexuality is also essential, and that doesn’t always come easily. Your provider is here to help you find ways to embrace and enhance this part of life and can also help you learn how to communicate your needs to partners.  

When should young women begin receiving sexual health services?

Ideally, young women should begin working with their gynecologist on sexual health issues even before becoming sexually active. Preventing unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are central focuses in adolescent gynecology. 

Understanding the role of consent is also critical, especially for women who are just beginning to explore their sexuality. Today’s girls and young women are navigating changing times, and the team at NY Midtown OB/GYN is here to provide the guidance needed for a lifetime of great sexual health.
