What is sexual health?

Sexual health is a respectful and proactive approach to sexuality that prioritizes your ability to enjoy safe, satisfying sexual experiences. Maintaining optimal sexual health involves adopting healthy sexual behaviors, such as using protection and contraception, getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), practicing safe sex, and communicating openly and honestly about any sexual health concerns you have. 

Achieving and preserving your sexual health typically requires regular screening, healthy lifestyle habits, and seeking medical attention for any sexual health concerns.

What are the most common sexual health concerns in adults?

Adults face a variety of sexual health concerns as they age. The most common types depend on your unique medical history, sex, age, and behavior. Sexual health concerns in adults typically include:

  • STDs
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Low libido
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Difficulty achieving orgasm
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse

Many sexual health problems can seep into other aspects of your life, leading to depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. The team at EMC Walk-In and Wellness specializes in providing individualized sexual health care to address your specific needs and goals. 

Are there any treatments to improve sexual health?

EMC Walk-In and Wellness provides several treatments to improve your sexual health and wellness, ensuring you have the opportunity to enjoy intimacy. After a comprehensive exam, which may include a physical, lab work, and imaging scans, the team may recommend:

  • STD testing and treatment
  • Contraception
  • Pelvic floor exercises
  • Hormone therapy
  • Medication (Viagra®, Cialis®, antidepressants, etc.)

The clinic also offers the O-Shot® for women. This minimally invasive injection uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in your blood to rejuvenate your vaginal tissues. The O-Shot can help treat low libido, urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and decreased ability to orgasm.

How do I know if I need sexual health care?

Everybody benefits from regular sexual health care. If you’re sexually active, have unprotected sex, or have multiple sexual partners, regular health screenings and STD testing are essential to protect your health. Other signs you may need sexual health treatment include abnormal discharge, genital itching, and painful urination.
