Preventive Sexual Health Services for Women

What Sexual Health Services do Women Need? 

The following preventive services are recommended for most women. Your provider will help you decide which ones you need. Even if you don’t have symptoms, screenings can detect many sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you do have an STI, the sooner you get treated, the better. Early treatment can often prevent serious problems from developing. Vaccines are also available that can protect you from getting certain STIs. You can receive many of these services during a regular wellness exam or a Well Woman visit.

It’s Your Body!

You know your body better than anyone. Always tell your health care provider about any changes in your health. Speak to them about any concerns you may have about conditions, diseases, or issues related to sexual functioning or performance.
