Sexual health

Sex lives change and evolve over time—but you should never feel like you have to settle for a less-satisfying sex life due to menopause or a medical condition. Look to Spectrum Health for understanding, confidential care.

What is sexual health?

Sexual health includes your physical, emotional, mental and social well-being related to sexuality. If you’re concerned about your sexual health, you’re not alone. Almost 40% of women at some point experience an issue significant enough to interfere with sexual activity.
