Cancer is devastating enough, but sexual intimacy doesn't have to disappear as a result. The staff at the Women's Intimacy and Sexual Health (WISH) Center can help if you're having such difficulties as:

  • Vaginal dryness, itching or burning.
  • Pain during intercourse.
  • Decreased desire or less pleasure during intercourse.
  • Changes in body image as a result of surgery or the effects of treatment.

Speak to your oncologist or primary care physician about a referral. For appointments, you can call (401) 453-7520.

WISH is made up of specialists who can help you enjoy intimacy again. Our team includes:

  • Breast and gynecologic health specialists.
  • Medical oncologists.
  • Nurse practitioners.
  • Sex therapists.
  • Physical therapists specializing in pelvic floor issues.
Together, we will work with you and your partner, if appropriate, to help identify and treat intimacy difficulties. Successful treatment blends several resources such as lubricants and moisturizers, targeted physical therapy, emotional support, and talk therapy.
