We start by getting to know you, including your lifestyle and health history. Our providers will ask whether you’ve had previous pelvic surgeries and what medications you are taking. Our comprehensive approach to female sexual health considers all potential causes for sexual concerns, including gynecologic and other medical problems.
We may perform a pelvic exam to check for gynecologic issues, such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids. Lab studies may help us detect hormone imbalances or infections. Our providers may also recommend imaging studies to check for unexpected growths like tumors or cysts.
