Sexuality and Intimacy Clinic

Sexuality and Intimacy Clinic

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

No Show Policy
We have a policy for missed appointments at all Women and Infants Hospital's physician practices. If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please give us at least 24 hours notice.

Please be advised that this location is a provider-based clinic and both a physician and facility fee will be assessed, which may result in a higher out-of-pocket expense.
